Hello Updaters!! Very light news day. Sorry I got a late start today (tomorrow will be too – traveling). Check out *** Current News *** and *** Chat Comments ***. There is some interesting stuff there. Thanks – BGG
UPDATE: Here’s a quick peek…
I’m still on the road so I’ll do a more extensive update this evening. There won’t be a “That’s Messed Up…” word until then – so stay tuned.
The most interesting news of the day is there was a “mini-summit” meeting of the Erbil 5 today in Najaf (possibly an additional “secret” meeting tomorrow). I did foresee this and even talked about it on the last call (see above).
Another very interesting side note…I thought it would be the “death tone” for Maliki if Hakim showed up to this meeting. He did not. Almost a close second – Chalibi did show though…amazing!!

P.S. Maliki wasn’t even invited – no matter what his PR goons are spouting.
*** Current News ***
Urgent …Sadr announced the end of the Conference of Najaf and agreements without detectable
Twilight News/ said the cleric Moqtada al-Sadr, Saturday, for the end of the Conference of Najaf on the current crisis, the results, but pointed to the conclusion of agreements “in service of the Iraqi people.”
وقال الصدر في مؤتمر صحفي عقده في منزله بالنجف وحضرته ” شفق نيوز ” إن الاجتماع عقد “لوضع اللمسات الأخيرة لتنفيذ ما جرى الاتفاق عليه سابقا في اربيل”. Sadr said in a press conference held at his home in Najaf, and attended by “Twilight News” that the meeting was held “to put the finishing touches to implement what was agreed upon previously in Erbil.”
وأضاف الصدر أن “القادة السياسيين اتفقوا على نقاط من شأنها خدمة الشعب العراقي” دون أن يفصح عنها ولا عن نتائج الاجتماع. He said al-Sadr that “political leaders agreed on the points that will serve the Iraqi people” without being disclosed and the results of the meeting.
وغاب رئيس الوزراء نوري المالكي وزعيم المجلس الأعلى الإسلامي عمار الحكيم عن الاجتماع كما لم يحضره رئيس كتلة التحالف الوطني. He missed the prime minister and leader of the Islamic Supreme Council Ammar al-Hakim of the meeting was not attended as the head of the National Alliance.
They are basically saying they had a meeting of all the major players – they just aren’t saying what happened. There could be a lot of reasons for the secrecy.
*** Rumor Comments ***
Guru Rumor – The Iraqi Dinar may not increase 1000% overnight, but in my opinion…it’s going to keep going up. More importantly…I like the potential to not only make good money, but to make a LOT of good money. It’s like having a lottery ticket that never expires! Summary – the Dinar is not a scam, it is a currency. If you hold authentic notes, you have not been “scammed”.
I completely agree with the above!! That’s probably the truth!! It’s a currency – it’s money!!
