On June 25 in the report back on the Friday rally I stated that
--The new parliament of Iraq was seated, with the seats vacated by Al
Sadr and his party filled by supporters of Nouri Al Malaki, a former
Prime Minister who has a mixed history of whether or not to support the
US presence there.
Somehow when I ran a search for Iraq News and limited it to the previous
week, I pulled up an article from 2010 (!).
This is the actual and correct news about the new parliament being sworn
in after the Sadr block resigned; the Prime Minister and President had not
yet been chosen.
Sometimes there is just so much going on that I miss the nuances.
So the Al Maliki news is old and not correct but the new Parliament being
seated, that's right.
Sorry for any confusion.
