chattels: Executive Mansion, ............ Washington, Nov. 21, 1864................. Dear Madam,-- I have been shown in the files of the War Department a statement of the Adjutant General of Massachusetts that you are the mother of five sons who have died gloriously on the field of battle.
I feel how weak and fruitless must be any word of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic they died to save.
I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom. Yours, very sincerely and respectfully, A. Lincoln

OOTW: ENVOY: U.N. TO INCREASE EFFORTS TO HELP BAGHDAD, ERBIL COME TO AGREEMENT Envoy: U.N. to increase efforts to help Baghdad, Erbil come to agreement 22 hours ago Views 2741 + - BAGHDAD — Special Representative of the U.N. Secretary-General for Iraq, Jan Kubis, said he is ready to mediate between Erbil and Baghdad to reach a new agreement to resolve issues, an official’s press office said on Sunday (May 29).
The press office of Iraqi Parliament Deputy Speaker Aram Sheikh Mohammad issued a statement on Sunday saying a number of Kurdish representatives in the Iraqi parliament met with Kubis at the U.N. Headquarters in Baghdad.
The Kurdish representatives called on the U.N. to assist Baghdad and Erbil in coming to a new agreement to resolve the issues between both sides. Kubis insisted the United Nations would makes efforts to bring Kurdish and Iraqi officials closer to reaching an agreement, according to the statement.
Relations between the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) and Baghdad intensified last year after officials from both sides accused each other of failing to abide by the terms of an oil revenue sharing deal struck by officials in December 2014.
Officials from Baghdad and Erbil had signed a revenue sharing deal, under which the KRG would receive 17 percent of the federal budget in exchange for exporting 550,000 barrels of oil per day to the Iraqi State Organization for Marketing Oil (SOMO) at Ceyhan Port in Turkey.
According to the statement, Kubis said the United Nations has increased its efforts to acquire more assistance for the KRG. Kubis added Japan and Kuwait showed readiness to support the Kurdistan Region and Syrian refugees and internally displaced people in the region, the statement said. (NRT)
OOTW: HERE IS WHAT MR SOWELL HAD TO SAY ABOUT THIS 1) This misstates the nature of the oil export agreement. 2) The UN's talk about an "agreement" means nothing.Kirk H. Sowell added, NRT English @NRT_English Envoy: #UN to increase efforts to help #Baghdad, #Erbil come to agreement
#NRTnews LIKE 1 Zzzz 12:53 PM - 29 May 2016 Kirk H. Sowell @UticaRisk 20h20 hours ago #pt The Baghdad-KRG oil export agreement was for 100% of KRG exports, not 550,000. That figure was just for accounting.

Ononotagain: haha... everyday above ground, is a good day !!
Ononotagain: ????? The new currency is convertible into non-Iraqi currencies, including the US dollar, at the prevailing market rate. OANDA does not exchange Iraqi Dinars (including physical banknotes) to any other currency. https://www.oanda.com/currency/help/iraqi-dinar
Ononotagain: So I looked more... There is considerable confusion (perhaps intentional on the part of dinar sellers) around the role of the International Monetary Fund in Iraq.
The IMF as part of the rebuilding of Iraq is monitoring their finances and for this purpose uses a single rate (not a sell/buy) of 1170 dinars per dollar. This "program rate" is used for calculations in the IMF monitoring program and is not a rate imposed on Iraq by the IMF. For a wider history surrounding currency in the region, see British currency in the Middle East. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iraqi_dinar
Ononotagain: so... the program rate means nothing ??? ... and they can set their price for whatever, or whoever they wish. ??? or has their been so much circle intelligence that guru's have created their own reality ???
