Gates Lies About Maliki And Sadr
Defense Secretary Bob Gates, heaping praise on Nouri al-Maliki, said:
This is 180 degrees opposite the truth. In reality, Sunni, Kurdish and Shiite parliamentarians are lining up with Sadr against Maliki’s crackdown in Sadr City. Indeed, from the Washington Post today:
A delegation of leaders from the Sadrist movement is scheduled to meet with Maliki in coming days to try to negotiate an end to the violence, but both sides have indicated they are far from a settlement. Maliki is demanding that Sadr disband the militia, a step seen as unlikely.
Bob Gates: stop lying.
