6-17-2012 Doc: We have seen a flurry of wrong information posted on many sites this past week. First, the discussion on Iraq/Kuwait and chapter 7 by the UNSC is scheduled for Tuesday, June 19 and not yesterday (Friday) as many reported.
Friday was simply the date to get the reports to the UNSC for review. Unfortunately the initial reaction to the report is not as favorable as we would have hoped. It was reported that Ban Ki-moon "expressed regret yesterday for lack of tangible progress in the issue of missing Kuwaitis and Kuwaiti property in Iraq."
And it was further reported that the report recommended that the international coordinator be funded through the end of the year. While we will obviously wait and see what happens Tuesday our hopes of chapter 7 release are somewhat diminished. This initial response to the report was less than a glowing review.
