Update: Fighting Corruption
I have talked to you about this “Unified National Card” many times already. Do you remember? Almost 9 Months ago now Iraq introduced these cards to us and they told us the importance of getting these cards out to every Iraq citizen and why this was so important.
These cards are to be used as an identity card for Iraqi citizens. I will also be used as an ATM card for the transfer of oil royalties to the citizens. These cards must be linked to a banking account and the holder must first establish an account and then relay the account number to the interior ministry committee running the project. Also the new member must come to the office and establish identity by proof of birth and finger printing.
So in the future, when they stop someone in the streets for a suspect incident, if they are not a legitimate citizen and can not produce their National ID card, they will be detained until they can figure out who they are. This is being done now mostly due to the necessity to sort out any Iranian militia or outsiders interfering in Iraq.
So what do they accomplish with these new cards (to replace the existing Qi cards):
So months ago we heard all the details and the rollout plan in the news. Now we are seeing it first hand again from the interior ministry who is in charge of this effort. This effort is a slow rollout. Now we they are telling us about the rollout to eastern Baghdad’s Sadr City.
Could this be why they are waiting so long for the HCL payments?
When will this project complete?
We where told it would be completed last summer but due to ISIS it has been stalled in the regions held by ISIS and DAASH. I suspect they plan to conclude these cards very soon. We wait for them to tell us.

We ask that the victory comes swiftly and healing of the Iraqi peoples and all whom have been effected by these evil doers can begin!
