Transcript from Australian radio progamme AM:

"AM has been sent an email from a soldier based at the al-Rasheed Hotel. He
complains that those running Iraq are more concerned with "hooking up with
nice-looking gals from US and Iraq". He says for staff at the headquarters,

steak and crab leg dinner.
The email says the soldiers fighting "look like hobo's and live like pigs",
while those within the Mr Bremer's authority have created a sterile ivory
castle that distorts their view of the country."
