"It's as if I'm not working in a legitimate Iraqi operation," he said in exasperation. "It's as if I'm doing something illegal, as if I'm in a party and I want to overthrow the government, as if I'm part of an underground organization."

On the eve of its historic election, Iraq has become a country where everything, including the election itself, is upside down.
