There is a lot going on right now – [Mustafa al-Kadhimi] continues the surge towards seating the cabinet, and continues to be mysteriously effective in his new role. Eid al-Fitr will be up on May 24, and the few remaining posts are slated for completion shortly. Mustafa al-Kadhimi is also kicking butt at his job. Iran has lost a ton of ground in Iraq, Khadimi has done a lot to prove that he is not another Iranian sock puppet, and on the heels of the renewal of EO13303 there is even more Iranian squashing. All of that, and more, is reason to smile.
