Maliki: US Envoy Acts Like a Viceroy, Not an Ambassador...
Iraqi leader critical of U.S. envoy

'BAGHDAD -- A festering grievance between Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and the United States escalated yesterday with Mr. al-Maliki telling President Bush that America's ambassador in Baghdad acts like a viceroy instead of a diplomat.

Hassan al-Suneid, a member of Mr. al-Maliki's inner circle, said a hastily arranged videoconference with the president was needed because issues needed airing at a higher level than with U.S. Ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad.

Mr. al-Suneid also said the prime minister complained to Mr. Bush that Mr. Khalilzad, an Afghan-born Sunni Muslim, was treating the Shi'ite Mr. al-Maliki imperiously.'

4. Looks like we need to have another "election"...
al-Maliki apparently isn't too good at taking marching orders. We need another purple-fingered election...this time with the correctly picked candidate. I wonder if Diebold machines are bomb-proof...
