Maliki warns U.S. he's Not America's man in Iraq.
Iraq's prime minister sharply criticized U.S. policy Friday during a private meeting with the American ambassador, pointing to the United States' failure to either reduce violence or give his government authority over security matters, aides to the Iraqi leader said.

"I'm a friend to the United States, but not America's man in Iraq," Maliki told Khalilzad.
Previously, Maliki had vehemently rejected the notion of deadlines for his government to achieve key goals.

Maliki's supporters downplayed the reference to timelines as insignificant, saying they were meant as rough guidelines to hand security over to the Iraqis. U.S. officials in Baghdad could not be reached for comment.

Apparently Malaki isn't happy with the amount of US. troops doing the fighting in Iraq.
