US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has ordered a review board to visit Iraq next week to assess US diplomatic security practices there following a deadly Baghdad shooting incident involving private Blackwater USA guards protecting a US Embassy convoy. Led by Patrick Kennedy, one of the most senior management experts in the US foreign service, the panel will leave early next week and present an interim report by October 5, State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said Thursday. Kennedy's team will "begin establishing some baseline set of facts about these contractor operations" and report back to Rice, McCormack said.
