IAG supporters

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.
