Still no public release of the RV, which should have happened some time ago.
Things happen according to plan, and sometimes plans change… so this RV is coming out at a later date than we expected.
Over the weekend, Iraqi television showed their leaders claiming victory this week.
They are talking about celebrations for the soldiers on June 12, which should mean that the fighting is over – cleaned up, past tense.
June 10 is the anniversary of ISIL taking over Mosul, so there is a symbolic significance for that being the official date they are finished with the liberation of Mosul.
We don’t really know how much is left in Mosul – half a district?
Clearly it’s no longer an issue there.
Abadi is filling the Finance Minister’s seat until a new one is selected, so that won’t interrupt the process.
We will just wait for the rest to unfold.
We expect this to happen any time.
We are waiting for that green light.
