Aloha Alex at December 13, 2014 at 9:02 PM So why hasn't Malaki's ugly*** face been thrown in the slammer yet? I'll tell you why.
He has had private personal meetings, individually or in groups, with every politician who participated in making Iraq the most corrupt country in the world; screaming that he will bury them and reveal every corrupt move they made - even the perceived "good guys." You won't find that in any article.
TLAR: Bingo. You are closer than you think. Corruption is systemic and everyone, that's everyone, including Jubouri was in on it.
TLAR CONTINUES: Maliki kept files on everyone he could as does all corrupt dictator wannabees. The idea is simple, "people who live in glass houses are much less likely to throw stones."
Barzini is a billionaire. Maliki is a billionaire. Talabini is a billionaire. There are over 20 billionaires in Iraq today,
All are participants in the government. From Jaafari to Mutlag and many, many others (1000's) too numerous to list and many lessor named government officials, all got super wealthy during the Maliki era.
Most immediately took their money to another country to deposit knowing full well that at some time in the future they would have to leave the country to avoid prosecution.
Maliki has in his possession many, many files on the crooks that he has accumulated and continues to use to back his accusers off. It is very tricky to remove a guy like this because the threat of his exposing you is enough to back you off if you to will go down with him.
It would not surprise me to find out that Maliki has files on Mahdi and Abadi also.
Abadi was entrenched in the SOL and DAWA and was either in on the take or a very stupid man.
We are seeing the depth of this corruption but nothing we are seeing should be any surprise to any of us.
It is just the mechanics of how he did it that we are now learning and are going to continue to learn, not what he did. If you have been following then you knew what he was doing all along and you knew that corruption was deep.
This is also why when push comes to shove, Maliki will be tried on charges of conspiracy and charges of murder, not on corruption. A corruption case would bring up other corruptions as part of Maliki's defense to show everyone did it.
A murder case or genocide most likely would not allow this kind of evidence of corruption to be admitted into the court room as it has nothing to do with the murder charge and a judge would not allow it.
TLAR CONTINUES: They will get past this and we know Abadi is on a mission to get it done, but this is much more tricky than it looks.
Allawi, Barzini, Jubouri, Jaafari, just about everyone we see today as the champions of the new Iraq are all guilty. So just like removing Maliki from office was a surgical mission, so must it be with the removal of the systemic corruption that has taken place.
They must do it just right otherwise it could be a real house of cards if all is exposed and all the dirty laundry sees light of day. They must protect Abadi, Massum, Mahdi, Barzini and Jubouri from being soiled - the future of Iraq. tlar.
