9:27 AM [BGG] On a better note - Baghdad, April 26 (Rn) - The National Alliance on Thursday accomplished a draft working paper and the National Conference to be held during the coming period, stressing that he will call a meeting of the Preparatory Committee for the purpose of the adoption of the draft.

9:27 AM [BGG] This is the paper that the KA told the NA to get done on Tuesday - 2 days...not bad?!?
9:28 AM [BGG] We'll see how quickly they set the meeting and if the language in the paper is strong enough to the the IS back to the table... That will be the issue.

9:36 AM [Sugar Pie] rileyjones I like this part "a national meeting to be held soon." Soon is still 4 letters
9:38 AM [BGG] This is a really interesting article posted by Double B in the forum....but to understand it - it's written from the perspective of Maliki support - a PM puff piece - I really don't believe it, at all.
I do believe this has been on his agenda and shows us exactly what those 500,000 USD bribes were all about - he was shoring up his support with a couple of the "little factions" as noted in the article.
However, this doesn't account for Sadr just yet - and he's not as happy with Maliki as they are making out. Especially after the gas-bag tried to out Al-Issawi!! http://www.dinarupdates. ··· post4575
