chattels: Newshound Guru Kaperoni Article: “eliminates the parliament’s decision not to ratify the paper Abadi reforms” …parliament voted in favor of Abadi’s reforms as long as they are constitutional. Which is a setback of sorts since Abadi was trying to get his reforms done expeditiously. This is not good news in the sense that it will probably slow progress down to a crawl because we know how slow parliament is to approve anything…and as some believe a win for Maliki and his attempts to prevent progress.

chattels: Abadi announced his reforms on August 8, almost three months ago. If the actions of Parliament today ” slow progress down to a crawl ” then we are months away from real reform.

*SCZIN11: Prominent Iraqi Politician, Dies, State TV Reports[ By REUTERS NOV. 3, 2015, 3:39

*SCZIN11: BAGHDAD – Ahmed Chalabi, the smooth-talking Iraqi politician who played a role in persuading the United States to topple Saddam Hussein in 2003, died on Tuesday of a heart attack, state television and two parliamentarians said. Haitham al-Jabouri, secretary of parliament’s financial panel, which Chalabi had chaired, said attendants had found him dead in his bed in his Baghdad home.

Chalabi was widely seen as the man who helped push the United States into invading Iraq in 2003 with information about Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction programme that was eventually discredited. After Saddam’s fall, Chalabi returned from exile in Britain and the United States.

At one point his name was floated as a candidate for prime minister but he never managed to rise to the top of Iraq’s stormy, sectarian-driven politics. His eventual fallout with his former American allies also hurt his chances of becoming an Iraqi leader.

Butifldrm: Now we see the auctions back up to 200M

chattels: ” On Aug. 6, just days before Iraq’s central bank said it would run out of dollars, the Fed and the New York Fed sent nearly $500 million. It has sent several more in the weeks since then.”

Butifldrm: yea

chattels: ” The issue isn’t fully resolved. On Oct. 2, the Treasury hosted a classified meeting in Washington focused on Iraq exchange houses that could have connections to Islamic State, according to people familiar with the meeting.

A couple of those exchange houses are owned by politically connected Iraqis, and U.S. officials discussed how best to persuade other Iraqi officials to terminate those relationships, one of these people said.”
