Who did Maliki just throw under the bus?
Advertisements [?]
Reports on CNN just now claim that a major Al Sadr aid was just captured by a combo US & Iraqi team. CNN claims that Maliki's willingness to prosecute this detainee will signal his true "willingness to take on the radical cleric".

My guess is that it is a minor functionary who al Sadr & Maliki agreed on ahead of time. (If it's NOT a minor guy... there will be some sleight of hand and he will wander back off into the wilderness)
