Nouri Hits Condi With A Ban


Better kick the Anbar take-over into overdrive, because we’re losing Baghdad.  With the Ahmadinejad show heading for town, U.N. festivities got started with a discernible chill between Condi and Maliki.

And then I was wondering, with Iraq making noises about more U.N. involvement, how much has the agency’s low profile been the result of the ’03 Iraq bombing, the neocons, Oil for Food, or the fact Ban Ki-moon (circle) hasn’t yet figured out how to get on Leno?

PR-wise, I’m keeping an eye out the body language in the expected mid-week Bush-Maliki photo op.
