Thornhill in Iraq–III

LCBA Member Ian Thornhill of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Cedar Rapids has been deployed to Iraq as a member of the Navy Reserve. He is going to be working on a task force that is helping to re-establish the Iraqi criminal court system. The LCBA will be posting his email updates, with permission.

I have attached another photo of me, although it’s not a very good one – blurry. Not my fault as I didn’t take it! Any way, this is me sitting on a throne in Al Faw Palace (read more here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al-Faw_Palace). I was told this throne was given to Saddam by Yasser Arafat. And yes, photos were allowed, I’m no rule breaker!
