This is one of a series of vignettes about daily life on a US military base Kiki wrote while she was in Baquba, Iraq. This is an ongoing series, presented in diary form. October 11, 2006 - Baquba --"Where is the rest of the #*^#* motorcade?" The language was unladylike. but Ambassador Khalilzad. General Mixon. and my boss, General (ret.) Olson were all sitting in my office waiting to talk with Iraqi leaders and the Iraqis were nowhere in dusty sight. The occasion was the Inauguration of our PRT (Provincial Reconstruction Team). We have been in existence and working all this while, of course, but we haven't been "official" until now. It was a big occasion. The Ambassador came up from Baghdad with his entourage. Major General Mixon and Brigadier General Wieroinski came down from the North. New York Times and Newsweek (well, to be honest, they really wanted to embed with the Brigade and we were an excuse) duly took notes and pictures. An unpredictable ("1 would be delighted to Come. Insh'Allah"--watch that "lnsh'Allah") host of Iraqi dignitaries attended. All needed transportation, seating charts and TLC, especially TLC. We had prepared for a week. Motorcade One, order of cars, who sat where, making sure Iraqi dignitaries were able to enter the FOB without problems, debating whether to remove the Halloween decorations from the FOB theater. My first thought about guests, inherited from my Mother, is "What shall we cook?" Here KBR takes care of that. Second and more compelling, it's Ramadan so there was no food. We tucked water and coffee behind corners and screens for the Westerners but most simply did without. Then Ambassador Khalilzad changed the schedule because he wanted an informal meeting with local Iraqi leaders after the ceremony. My office? Yes, where else? I dusted it with extra care, including the fake greenery. It's a nice office. We call it "wood paneled" only please don't notice the "Tesco exterior" stamps cunningly located just below ceiling height on the plywood. And I don't think Ambassador Khalilzad noticed. The Iraqi guests arrived and he was totally focused on them. It was a good discussion. Our Governor, the Provincial Council Chairman, an Assistant Governor and the Mayor of Baquba were pleased at the attention. It was a good inauguration. Everyone was pleased. Especially us. Especially after everyone left. And now we exist. ! ii
