5. Al Sadr is trying to return the shrine to the religious authorities,
al Sistani in other words, and is worded as a complaint that
they would not take it before. This puts further blame on
al Sistani, who already looks bad, and deflects any blame to
al Sadr for being there. I suspect he is going to leave Najaf
now, he has what he wanted from the US (all those nice pictures
of us bombing the shit out of Najaf and all those stories about
his successful defiance). If you read any of his statements in
full as published on al Jajeera, it is clear that his meaning is
being wildly distorted for propaganda purposes, but that is all
aimed at us here at home.

Anyway, that is how it looks to me at present.
