Where in the world is the Iraqi Budget for 2014? The Parliament stated last week they have it....now the COM is stating they have it.....if the COM has it....and they say it will be presented next week....what have they done to it to get it presentable at this time.....and does the CBI announcement from the COM today have any play with that.

Allegedly, according to one Parliament member from the Citizen bloc....the National Alliance has agreed with the Kurds regarding how Article 140 is to be applied....as well as the Kurd share of the budget and payment of the Peshmerga forces.....also Hamoudi has been named as the First Vice President of Parliament, the position that was vacated when Abadi was announced as Prime Minister.....some good news for the day....at last.....additionally the Kurds are not pursuing the position of Minister of Foreign Affairs....but instead are going after either the Minister of Oil....or....Minister of Finance in the new government.
Najafi accuse al-Maliki .. killing the residents of Camp Liberty!
Maliki is being accused of inhumane efforts on his part......not providing food, water, medicines, and fuel for those located at Camp Liberty.
Shiite alliance listens for consultations with the Kurds, Sunnis and pays tribute to three unzip siege Amerli

National Alliance: next few days will see the selection of the new government
IMO....I would much rather seeing this headline say "next few hours".......IMO time is becoming of the essence for the Iraqis.....the National Alliance has things running in a positive direction...they need to strike while the iron is hot and water still beads up on the hot griddle....know what I mean.....no time like the present to be cooking what will be shared for the next four years.

Government efforts to declare Abadi before the NATO summit next Thursday
NATO meets in Leeds next week on Thursday....there is now a strong push to get Abadi and his council of ministers approved before this meeting.....this would then allow for Abadi to have a strong unified government representing Iraq at the meeting to discuss the real issues associated with the terrorist actions ongoing in Iraq.
Maliki .. more appointments to his supporters before his departure on new centers!
Beware....the snake is once again on the move....Maliki is attempting to appoint people into positions that he had no concern for in the past.....all of course are his supporters...my guess though....as quickly as they are being appointed....they can be removed by the new sheriff in town.
Newspapers today are talking about the possibility of the government announcement within 24 hours.
Remember Family, earlier I said....they need to be focusing on the "next few hours" not days.....this article is a boost if they can indeed pull of the announcement of the new government this quickly....not sure they are capable though.....this article also talks about schemes in the works that are being reported by other news agencies that indicate attempts to thwart Abadi's attempt to become Prime Minister......I see the next 24-72 hours in Iraq as getting very critical.
Cabinet transmit Abdul Basit Turki on retirement and appoints Keywords central bank governor
Doubting Thomas comes to mind.....I'm still unsure what is transpiring here and who is doing what to who.....if indeed the new government will be allowed to name the new governor of the CBI....all well and good.....but what happens in the "next few days" while there is no governor......is the CBI in the clutches of Maliki and clan during this time....he has always....always wanted his hands on the reserve money in the CBI....could or would this be his last dying breath effort to do so.....I pray not.
