Maliki or Bush?
Dispatch from the Angry Democrat News NetworkNY Times reported a secret memo from Stephen Hadley, questioning Iraqi P.M. capabilities. Here's an extract. As I read this I wonder if he's talking about Maliki, or Bush? Substitute "Bush" for "Maliki" in the text and see if you agree. Amazing parallels
The memo said al-Maliki receives “undoubtedly skewed” information from a small circle of advisers from the Shiite Dawa Party.
“His intentions seem good when he talks with Americans, and sensitive reporting suggests he is trying to stand up to the Shia hierarchy and force positive change,” the memo said.
“But the reality on the streets of Baghdad suggests al-Maliki is either ignorant of what is going on, misrepresenting his intentions or that his capabilities are not yet sufficient to turn his good intentions into actions.”
