Fred: You know Maliki has to be losing sleep..
BlueyesinLevis: Street sent me this.....
-Remember, I was explaining that this was in the works and going to happen. Just did not think they would move this fast, but they are. These guys are going to squeal and we know it…
There is no honor amongst thieves when it comes to saving their own butt from the maximum jail sentence…
-You are wondering why Abadi hasn’t announced his cabinet yet, well this is why they are cleaning house first..you have to rid the committees of the thieves,
we all know corruption was rampant in Maliki’s administration,
the SoL guys will be picked off one by one very quickly and it looks to me that they are going to be moving fast at removing the big fish in parliament that were on Maliki’s committees
and then they will go after all of their associates that helped them steal…
Goodbye SoL MPs, staff and all associates..
and if you don’t think Maliki & his son know they are next well I don’t know what to tell you.
No doubt about what is going on behind the scenes in Iraqi politics… It is very obvious that even the courts have been cleaned up and Maliki has lost ALL POWER..
-Lastly you can’t steal 20 or 25 billion dollars without a lot of help from your SoL goons and family and friends..
Just remember not only does Abadi have to choose his cabinet wisely but he also has to make sure the correct MPs are in the committees ~Street
Fred: 1 billion dollars in 100 dollar bills weighs.... 22,000 lbs! He had some help. I'm betting They stole cash not electronic stuff. Remember Saddam had millions of USD hid out all over Iraq.
While we are throwing numbers around, 1 trillion dollars in 100 dollar bills weighs... 22 MILLION POUNDS! Just call me the local useless info guy
