Abstract:     
Since becoming the President's envoy responsible for post-war Iraq, Paul Bremer endured many sleepless nights, struggling with the decision of how to hand over sovereignty to the Iraqi people. Despite daily assassination attempts, tribal warfare, growing violence, and political pressure--at home in Washington, D.C. and abroad--the CPA undertook the difficult task of handing over power to an Iraqi civil society which was simultaneously being rebuilt from the ground up.

Learning Objective:
Diagnose the leadership strategies employed in a crisis situation and decide how to move forward in the process of transferring sovereignty.
