NPR's Robert Siegel looks ahead to Iraqi reconstruction with Kanan Makiya, professor of Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies at Brandeis University, author of the book Cruelty and Silence and a high-ranking member of the Iraqi opposition. Makiya says a plan is beginning to gel about how an interim government will take hold. He terms the interval a time of "de-Baathification."
