LAT: Iraqi Prime Minister Criticizes U.S. Policy
http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/world/la-fg-ira...

The Iraqi prime minister sharply criticized U.S. policy Friday during a private meeting with the U.S. ambassador, pointing to America's failure to either reduce violence or give his government authority over security matters.

The criticism in private was the latest example of tension between the two governments and stood in stark contrast with a joint public statement issued after the meeting.

In the statement, Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and the U.S. Embassy said they had agreed to unspecified "timelines" to make tough political and security decisions on the country's future.

Privately, however, al-Maliki criticized what he called the patronizing U.S. tone toward the Iraqi government and warned U.S. Ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad to respect Iraq's sovereignty, according to two of the prime minister's advisers.

"I'm a friend to the United States, but not America's man in Iraq," al-Maliki told Khalilzad, according to Hassan al-Senaid, one of the prime minister's closest advisers.

2. That guy is playing with fire.
"I'm a friend to the United States, but not America's man in Iraq,".Yeah,right.The puppet want to

cut the strings? Well,Mr al-Maliki if you do that you will feel the power of gravity

and fall.If you're there it's because the US government wants you there.

Just look at what happened to Noriega,Saddam and all the other puppets who tried to

cut the strings.Ouch!
