"It was the U.S. administration believes that Iyad Allawi, a secular Shiite and Sunni bloc leader broad support, so it will be for Iraq government more inclusive, and will be delivered from the drift toward authoritarian rule under the leadership of Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki worrying."
The report explained, "but it was not preparing for Obama to achieve that."
"They were afraid that if I do not reach Iraqi political entities to an agreement."
He noted that Jalal Talabani rejected the request.
"We have noted Obama to withdraw U.S. troops last year as evidence that he has fulfilled his promise to end the war in Iraq and that this would reduce the conflict, however, the process is much bigger than the issue of troops out."

"
The report said, "but the Obama administration and after a short time I felt frustrated by the lack achieve those goals."
"I then attempt by Obama and his top aides to view the power-sharing between Maliki and Allawi alternately but that never materialized. Was down so an agreement to remain a small force of the U.S. military in Iraq to train the Iraqi army and patrolling the skies of the country.

They say that politics, not violence, has become the means key to the Iraqis to resolve their differences, while the facts say "coverages recent newsletters from Iraq indicate that our troops departed, and went with American influence and our management to shift its focus away from Iraq," and only Anthony Blinken, national security adviser to Vice President Joseph Biden, in his speech last March by saying "" The fact increased engagements in our Iraq.
