OK, on to Mission Mosoul, Part 7: After my meeting with the wicked witch, you recall I called back to Baghdad. Some readers couldn't believe that this witch was really as mean as she was...I actually toned it down...she was in fact yelling and screaming at us. If I had found her on the streets back home as a police officer, I would have transported her forthwith to the county mental health hospital for a mental eval.
The day after our "discussion" I went to the witch's office. She said" There's a major from ---- who's on his was here. He wants to talk to YOU."
I was a little surprised....but within 10 minutes, an Army Major walked in the door. He looked like a poster child for the US Army, tabs and combat patch, airborne and all.
He asked if there was an office where he and I could talk, and I looked at the witch. She got up and said: "here, use mine and walked out."
The Major and I had a long talk...it turned out to be a job interview of sorts. We were not going to have to work with the wicked witch after all...oh joy!
