This is the list from the BBC:

Jay Garner, head, Office of Humanitarian Assistance and Reconstruction
Bruce Moore, northern area administrator
Barbara Bodine, central area administrator
Buck Walters, southern area administrator
George Ward, humanitarian aid
Lewis Lucke, reconstruction
Michael Mobbs, civilian government

I'm somewhat familiar with Garner and Bodine. Anyone familiar with the rest of them?

No. :(

The Iraqi whose name is being thrown around most now for the post-transitional dictator -- I mean democratic leader -- is Ahmed Chalabi. He is actually a pretty cool guy, a mathematician, but I am somewhat worried by the fact he's been out of the country for ~50 years, and may have spent a little too long in the ivory tower: at one point I saw him quoted as saying "the de-Baathification of Iraq must be a holistic social process." Hmmm.

I'm not so sure I would consider Ahmed Chalabi a "cool" guy.
I think he may have a somewhat tawdry hidden past (there are rumors). Time will tell.
