_10:44 AM [OfCourse13] Do you know for sure if the issue of seating the ministers is still up in the air?
10:47 AM [BGG] OfCourse13 - It may very well not be - it is very likely settled and getting ready to announce - I'm thinking only the Defense Minister though. I doubt there ends up being a Security Minister - MHO is they will fold the Security and Interior Ministries together into 1 job and I think they already have an Interior Minister. Right?
10:49 AM [newmonies] Maliki to transfer the security file to the Ministry of Interior: LINK
10:49 AM [RickeyT] BGG al-dulami
10:49 AM [OfCourse13] BGG I remember reading about Interior the other night,
but it's hard for me to understand the articles enough to know how far they are into SETTLEing these things instead of more talk, talk, talk.
10:50 AM [BGG] That's JMHO - is all.
10:50 AM [newmonies] Defence Minister "Saadoun al-Dulaimi": LINK
10:52 AM [BGG] Well - the timing was right.
10:52 AM [BGG] Last Friday was the ticket...we’ll have to wait and see.
10:53 AM [OfCourse13] BGG OK...please remind me what happened last Friday???

10:55 AM [BGG] OfCourse13 - I never did say - just that the timing of a Defense Minister showing up then was correct.
10:55 AM [OfCourse13] BGG Gotcha. Thanks!
10:57 AM [OfCourse13] Sometimes when I read the articles it seems like we could be waiting months more for them to get all the details done. Hard for me to tell.
10:58 AM [newmonies] BGG that's the BEST OPINION in this Investment... imo
10:59 AM [OfCourse13] newmonies Yes! That's why I hang out here. w/o BGG and poppy I'd be LOST!
10:59 AM [juiceplus+] BGG newmonies , so in layman terms, what is your opinion about this week? Especially with all recent news.
10:59 AM [BGG] One reason I put so much behind this contact is how much of this is pretty much on target...from the other nite..."I do have a pretty good contact that is hoping for a UST release from "restricted" status late Wed @ 3.47..."
11:00 AM [OfCourse13] BGG Surprised me when you put out that one
11:00 AM [squirrel49] what is restricted status
11:00 AM [BGG] That is obviously not a perfectly "hard date" - but that's what they are thinking (deep gov't financial contact)...
11:01 AM [newmonies] i like it... i luv it... i want some more of it...
11:01 AM [OfCourse13] BGG Like that thinking!
11:01 AM [BGG] OfCourse13 - Well sooner or later it will happen - and when I know - you will know. That is a fact.
11:02 AM [newmonies] juiceplus+ hows that for this week Woooooo Hoooooo
11:04 AM [juiceplus+] newmonies , that's what I was asking you about earlier, wow
11:04 AM [OfCourse13] BGG Should I assume the $3.47 was SEEN somewhere?
11:06 AM [BGG] OfCourse13 - I'll give you one guess as to what my "bet" was in Poppy's challenge
11:07 AM [OfCourse13] Funny thing about poppy's challenge is nobody really wanted to win!
11:09 AM [OfCourse13] BGG OK, so since we're chatting rate and date...What time of day on WED?
11:15 AM [BGG] OfCourse13 - That was just a very good contact's thinking. However, due to the gravity of their info - I thought I would share. Especially as I believe we are getting close enough for that info to matter (based on other sources).
