By Joshua Stewart, May 11, 2010- After 20 months in Iraq, Ben Fluhart is looking for a role model for Balad, a city about an hour’s drive from Baghdad – and thinks Annapolis could play the part. “We’re constantly looking for ways to expose Iraqis to ways we do things in other places,” Fluhart said during a recent trip back to […]
“We’re constantly looking for ways to expose Iraqis to ways we do things in other places,” Fluhart said during a recent trip back to Annapolis, where he owns a home.
Fluhart works with a team of State Department employees on a military installation in Iraq, serving as mentors of sorts to local government officials, holding the hands of a newborn democracy and helping it take its first steps after war, invasion and occupation.

Fluhart said colleagues of his who accompanied Iraqis on such trips said most were floored by how things – particularly major shopping malls- run in the United States.
“Without exception, they describe their trip to the United States as transformational,” he said. “Seeing that stuff is something we can’t replicate over there. The problem is, in Iraq, there aren’t many…(more story)
