With all due respect to Humans near and far. Insider? I presume he fell in Cider. Alcohol version. Before interview.
From email recieved:
Here's a couple of quick highlights:
1. Shabibi appears to be on his way out. I didn't believe it at first, but all signs are
pointing that way... we will stand by and see what happens. Maybe they will replace
him with someone who's more "trigger-happy" and willing to get this thing done quicker!
2. Maliki appears to be signing up for a third term after some talk of not continuing
in his current position. A lot of people talk bad about him, but I think this is a good thing.
As per Iraq's Constitution only 2 - 4 year terms are permitted. This will be Maliki's second term.
