    • Absolve a lot of folks who were incarcerated without due process & probably a lot of political prisoners during Maliki’r reign- that’s why he is publicly denouncing it today-


  1. Thank you, Ralph!!
    I think this is a pretty big deal. These guys were in high positions in the previous regime. They were falsely charged by Maliki. Tareq al Hashemi was in hiding for a long time in Turkey, I think. More recently, after the new Prime Minister took over, he may have moved to Kurdistan, but I am not sure. I think he and maybe the other two will serve prominent positions in the reformed GOI in the near future. IMHO, but, I could be wrong. I hope others will comment.
