#2 Newday has a good article on the privatization plan. Here is the first para:

The U.S.-led administration in Iraq will present a plan to privatize the country's state-owned industries by the spring, the official in charge of the effort said Wednesday.

Iraqis will make the final decisions on how to manage the sales, said Thomas Foley, director of private sector development for the American-led Coalition Provisional Authority. He said he would give suggestions for detailed privatization plans to the U.S.-appointed Iraqi Governing Council, which then would name a commission to oversee the process
