In Fleming 

…The political scene – elections in Iraq were a mess. Maliki (Iran’s choice), was elected as one of three presidents this year. In his new role of President, Maliki has brought suit to stop the Central Bank of Iraq from revaluing the Dinar which was fully underway… Truly, CBI doesn’t need the government’s approval…Yet Maliki and with Iran’s support, did not agree. Maliki wants the value to remain at the present “fixed rate” and is testing the waters…Maliki has lost his position as president and this lawsuit is dropped…All challenges have been handled by this evening, on January 19, according to Ministers in Iraq, along with all Iranian banks, removed from Iraq….How quickly they can get their political house in order still remains to be seen…
