An American intelligence officer reveals details of an upcoming visit by Al-Kazemi to Washington

image.php?token=b3e6c79da0cb8311ef9a1ae3542f0d0e&c=1593386&size=

 

5th August, 2020

 

A former CIA officer and senior fellow at the Hudson Institute, Michael Brigante, revealed a prospective visit of Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi to Washington.

In a post, Brigent said, “Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi is scheduled to visit Washington soon, although he has no appointment or invitation yet, so he is quick to say all the right things in order to secure a meeting with US President Donald Trump.” 


He added that "Iraq is worse off than it was two weeks ago, and this last week pushed two issues to the top of the list for Al-Kazimi's visit to the United States: Hezbollah Brigades continued attacks on the United States and the Iraqis, and Al-Kazimi's calls for early elections that Hezbollah Brigades and his allies will not allow in the parliament Iraqi MPs with their occurrence. "

"The main item on Trump's agenda is for Al-Kazimi to do something about the militias that he is supposed to lead as commander-in-chief of Iraq. Militias that are part of the government’s security apparatus attack American individuals in Iraq who are there to partner with the Baghdad government to ensure a permanent defeat ISIS. Militias are now more threatening to the United States and the Iraqis than ISIS."

"Trump wants to know if the United States has a partner in Iraq. The president is ready to withdraw American forces from Iraq if this "partner" continues to be disappointed. Republicans and Democrats are looking for a reason to end this experiment and this will not be without cost to Baghdad and Tehran," he said.

He added, "There are two measures by the House of Representatives led by Democrats that indicate an end if nothing changes. The Democrats voted to reduce funding for the American Mission in Iraq by $ 145 million, and Republican Representative Joe Wilson was able to pass two amendments ensuring that no US dollars reach any institution in Iraq is where the militia can get the money - and that would mean that the Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of Interior will be the most affected."

And that “the United States is in Iraq to confront ISIS under a United Nations mandate, but the greatest threat to American forces is from militias that pay the Iraqi government’s salaries and are supposed to control them. It pledged to hold the prime minister accountable for the killing of Qassem Soleimani and founder of the Hezbollah Brigades Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis - both of whom were killed at the same time in a US drone strike in early January.

He pointed out, "Al-Kazemi ignored the threats to his life, but he is not ready to confront the powerful militias. Most Iraqis believe, as evidence indicates to the Hezbollah Brigades, that it is the militia responsible for killing the adviser to the prime minister and expert analyst Hisham al-Hashemi last month. Some observers say that this will expose Al-Kazemi Dangerous, even if he hinted that Hezbollah Brigades is responsible for the targeted assassination of Hashemi. "

He continued, "(Parliament, not the Prime Minister, will decide whether there is electoral reform and early elections), that is precisely the reason for which Al-Kazemi must confront the militias. No entity within the Iraqi security forces can publicly threaten to kill a president." Ministers without consequences If this is the place we are in Iraq - a place where the commander in chief cannot use the Iraqi security forces to confront a rogue militia affiliated with the Quds Force in the Islamic Revolutionary Guard - the United States must withdraw all support and place the Iraqi government in its disadvantage Economic, while continuing to support the traditional and new allies in Iraq, the largest of all this."

He added, "Withdrawing American financial support to the Iraqi government and punishing Iraqi institutions through which groups such as the Hezbollah Brigades pass US dollars to Tehran will affect Iran and its political parties in Iraq. The demonstrators are calling on Al-Kazemi to pursue the militias, they want the United States to end its support for the status quo." They want new elections to end Iran's vote on what the Iraqis are doing and they want it now. "

He noted that "one of the main elements of Al-Kazemi's temporary status as Prime Minister is the call for new elections and the arrest of those responsible for killing Iraqi demonstrators and restraining the militias loyal to Tehran. He said the right things but all that matters is his actions or inaction." He ended his blog by saying, "Let's look at Iraq before Al-Kazemi's visit to the United States. The demonstrators are back on the streets demanding free and fair elections, water, electricity, jobs, and a country without interference."

A representative source reveals the date for the resumption of the regular parliamentary sessions

 
08/06/2020 13:01:47
 
A parliamentary source revealed the date of the resumption of Parliament's sessions, which were suspended due to the outbreak of the Corona pandemic, and injuries were recorded among members and employees of the Council.

 

The source told {Euphrates News}, "Parliament sessions will be resumed on the third of next September on a regular basis, and before that there may be one or two emergency sessions regarding the completion of the election law and resolving the dispute over the electoral districts."

It is noteworthy that the work of Parliament has been suspended for months, except with the exception of limited sessions, including the vote on the government of Mustafa Al-Kazimi on May 7, due to the registration of dozens of cases of Corona virus among MPs and employees. It is noteworthy that the House of Representatives recorded the first death among its members in the pandemic of the head of the Parliamentary Higher Education Committee, Ghaida Kampash, on July 10, affected by her infection with the virus.

A member of the Parliamentary Legal Committee, Hussein Al-Oqabi, said yesterday, Tuesday, that "Parliament stopped holding its sessions due to the spread of the Corona virus in the country and the high level of risk as well as the infection of more than 50 deputies with the virus (out of a total of 329), which necessitated stopping the resumption of the sessions, but now The holding of sessions has become an imperative to start completing the election law." He stressed, "The current political conditions and recent developments necessitate the convening of the Council, even at the level of committees, to decide on immediate issues."

Holding Parliament sessions at least in the next few weeks has become an urgent necessity to resolve the dispute over electoral districts in the election law, especially after Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi decided the date for early elections and held them on June 6, 2021, to throw the ball in the Parliament Square.

      Gabriel Saouma, a member of the advisory board of US President Donald Trump, revealed today, Monday, that the US administration is planning to impose new sanctions against Iraqi figures. 
      And the US Treasury Department previously announced sanctions against a company based in Iraq and two Iraqis for smuggling hundreds of millions of dollars of weapons to Iraqi militias supported by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. 
      This was followed by sanctions against leaders of the Popular Mobilization Forces, Waad al-Qaddo, Rayan al-Kaldani, as well as the former governor of Nineveh, Nawaf al-Sultan, and the former governor of Salah al-Din Ahmad al-Jubouri, linking them to files of corruption and violation of human rights. Soma told Shafaq News, "Frankly, until now, we do not know who are these new Iraqi figures that could be included in the US sanctions, but there is a tendency for the American administration to impose new economic sanctions against Iraqi personalities, because they are also involved in corruption operations, and others."
      Trump's advisor indicated that "Iraq has many political and governmental figures involved in corruption and has links with international bodies that also have sanctions, explaining," This matter will motivate Washington to impose sanctions on these figures. " 
      And Soma added that" American laws allow the president or the US Treasury Department. " , to impose sanctions on any personal or party, carried out corruption in his country or violated human rights and international law. " 
      Under the US sanctions freeze any assets or potential assets in the United States of individuals and entities concerned, and denial of access to the international financial system.
      Unless The application of exceptions, as any foreign financial institution that deliberately facilitates the conduct of important transactions for individuals or entities designated with sanctions, they may be subject to US sanctions.

      Baghdad today - Kurdistan
       
      Member of the Kurdistan Democratic Party, Imad Bajlan, confirmed today, Tuesday, that the lack of implementation of the constitution by the federal government is the basis of the dispute between Baghdad and Erbil.
      Baglan told (Baghdad Today), "In every meeting between the Kurdistan Regional Government and the federal government in Baghdad, the region demands the application of the constitution and asylum to the Federal Court in contentious issues, but different governments in Baghdad apply it selectively." 
      He added that "any agreement between the two governments will be temporary, because all previous agreements are not implemented and Baghdad will soon be disavowed due to the failure to apply the articles of the constitution." 
      And he stated, "We need a comprehensive legal agreement that guarantees the rights of citizens in the region, as well as the rights of Baghdad, and this matter will not be applied through visits or relations between two governments because it will soon end as it happened with the previous agreement in the government of Abdul-Mahdi, for that constitution is Al-Faisal." 
      Before that, Baglan confirmed that the Kurdistan region is owed 27 billion dollars because of Baghdad's failure to pay the region's dues. 
      Baglan said that "the Kurdistan region was delivering 250 thousand barrels according to the 2019 budget while receiving half of the agreed amount and not more than 450 million," stressing that "the Kurdistan government does not take a share of the petrodollars like the Iraqi provinces." 
      He added: "In the days of the war against ISIS, the government borrowed 65 billion dollars and did not give it a dollar to the Kurdistan Region in the face of terrorism and now deducts part of the payment from the region."
      He stressed that "the Kurdistan region owes $ 27 billion, which is because Baghdad stopped paying the region's dues at a time when it was fighting terrorism and saving the salaries of its employees forced." 
      A delegation from the Kurdistan Regional Government is preparing to visit the capital, Baghdad, as a prelude to completing negotiations on an agreement to deliver oil and revenue from border crossings in exchange for the federal government sending financial dues to the region's employees.

      Al-Kazemi responds to Iran's provocations with the Battle of the Land Ports

      - 4 Hours Ago  

       
      BAGHDAD - Baghdad responded strongly Saturday to indications indicating Tehran's intention to stimulate hostile security activities inside Iraq, when the Armed Forces Command in Basra, in the south, announced direct drilling of a trench in the vicinity of a border port to cut off drug and arms smuggling from Iran.
      Pictures showed mechanisms operating under the guard of Iraqi army soldiers to cut off irregular dirt roads used by smugglers linked to armed militias, to introduce drugs and weapons from Iran to Iraq and transfer the US dollar from Iraq to Iran.
      And the sale of Iranian drugs in Iraq generates big profits, after this country turned from a mere passage of this substance to other countries, to a consumer.
      Iran depends on selling drugs in the southern Iraqi cities, exchanging the return for the American currency, then returning it from the borders.
      Iran also provides weapons to its militias and sells to all clans and those willing to possess all the weapons and ammunition they need.
      Most of this material is introduced through dirt roads near the Shalamcheh border crossing between Iraq and Iran in Basra Governorate.
      Military sources said that the Iraqi army forces received direct instructions from Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi to stop smuggling operations between Iran and Iraq urgently, confirming that the Basra Operations Command has started since Saturday morning the establishment of a trench protected by an earthen shield that runs along the flat area near the Shalamcheh port, where it was built Militias are dirt roads.
      This development comes after the Iraqi authorities announced hostile security activities - believed to be carried out by pro-Iranian groups in Baghdad and southern cities - targeting American interests.
      It also came a few days after Al-Kazemi ended a visit to Tehran, which was surrounded by widespread controversy, and leaked from her that the Iraqi Prime Minister rejected an Iranian request to facilitate Tehran's acquisition of the US dollar.
      The Iraqi and Iranian governments are reluctant to disclose the nature of the relationship between the two countries now, and whether they are really tense, against the background of the failure of Al-Kazimi's visit to Tehran.
      Al-Kazemi’s directives did not stop at the level of stopping the smuggling of drugs and weapons from Iran to Iraq through the Shalamcheh outlet. Rather, it extended to include 13 other outlets, the most prominent of which is with Iran, including one with Saudi Arabia that was not opened mainly.
      The Joint Operations Command, which is the highest military formation in Iraq, said that Al-Kazemi issued directives to “seize all border crossings, enforce the law in them, combat abuses and corruption and waste public money,” announcing its initiation of “allocating security forces to all outlets and the size of the assigned security force according to the nature of each Outlet, where protection responsibility has been defined for all outlets on the Iraqi army’s parts. ”
      The leadership indicated that the forces empowered to protect the port and the customs sanctuary are “empowered with all legal powers to hold accountable any violation and from whomever it was.”
      Sources say that this type of measure directly affects militia activity linked to Iran within Iraqi territory.
      The government's actions reveal a clear plan to tighten control of the road linking Iran and Syria, via Iraq.
      And if Iran uses its ports with Iraq in Basra and Diyala to introduce weapons, then it uses Anbar outlets to transfer weapons from Syria to Iraq.
      These measures may provide a picture to answer the question that arises in multiple circles regarding the nature of the relationship between the Kazemi government and Iran.
      But Al-Kazemi, according to observers, does not want to enter into an all-out war with Iran's arms in Iraq, which is besieged by the stifling economic and health crises.
      Therefore, Al-Kazemi moves slowly and chooses files that do not raise media hustle, with the aim of strengthening the state’s influence versus that of the militias.
      Observers say that without the support of the international community, Al-Kazemi may find himself powerless to cope with the tremendous momentum that Iran can manufacture in Iraq, through forces that view the country and its organs lightly.

      Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said that his country would deal a blow to America in response to the killing of the prominent commander of the Revolutionary Guards, Qassem Soleimani, adding that his country would not interfere in Baghdad's relationship with Washington.
      Khamenei made his threat in Tuesday's meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kazemi, according to the official website of the Iranian guide.
      Khamenei told the Iraqi Prime Minister - who is visiting Tehran - that his country will not interfere in Baghdad's relationship with Washington, but he warned that the American presence on the Iranian border is causing security chaos.
      Al-Kazemi met Khamenei in Tehran on Tuesday during his first official visit abroad since he took office in May.
      Khamenei said that "Iran will not interfere in Iraq’s relations with America, but expects Iraqi friends to know America and realize that its presence in any country causes corruption, destruction and destruction."
      He continued, "The Islamic Republic expects to abide by the decision of the (Iraqi) parliament to expel American forces, as their presence is a reason for insecurity."

      Khamenei indicated that Soleimani was killed in an American air strike by a plane near Baghdad airport at the beginning of the year, after which the Iraqi parliament requested the withdrawal of American forces. "They killed your guest in your house and rudely admitted that," he said.
      He added that Iran "will never forget this and will certainly strike a retaliatory blow to the Americans."
      Tehran responded to the killing of Soleimani by launching ballistic missiles at bases used by American forces in Iraq, knowing that Trump refused to respond militarily to this strike.
      The missile attack targeting the al-Asad base in western Iraq did not result in deaths among US forces, but it wounded soldiers with brain tremors.
      Khamenei said that Iran opposes "what weakens the Iraqi government," contrary to Washington, which he said does not want "an independent and strong Iraqi government elected by popular vote."
