Open Ended Curfew Lasts Until Election Day?

One wire report said lost in the Saddam Hussein verdict is the failure to find weapons of mass destruction, the Bush rationale for precipitating the Iraq War. Another report suggested Sunni revenge inspired violence could escalate after the open ended curfew is lifted “in coming days”. A Sunni political leader said:

"This government will be responsible for the consequences, with the deaths of hundreds, thousands or even hundreds of thousands, whose blood will be shed."

Might the curfew tamping down sectarian strife last through America’s Election Day? It would not do to have an inflamed Iraq on the news as people head to the polls irritated over Bush’s consistently failed execution in that theater. It might be time for another application of Freedhem.
