Mickey Kaus on Maliki comment

July 21, 2008

Kaus brings to light the fact that, even though the Der Speigel and NYT translations vary, I would say considerably, Maliki still seems to be leaning towards Obama’s position over McCain’s.  I dunno, the dark side is strong in election years, perhaps even in Iraq.  Maliki obviously doesn’t want to be seen as weak on Iraqi national sovereignty, especially now.  On the other hand, perhaps he actually does feel that 16 months is an appropriate timeframe.  As quickly as the conflict turned around, perhaps its not absurd to think that political reconciliation is achievable.  Hat tip-Instapundit
