Baghdad / Washington / Orr News
Dawn, a political analyst at the New York Times Michael Gordon-caliber bomb, uncovered yesterday trying to U.S. President Barack Obama to persuade President Jalal Talabani to abandon his position in favor of Iyad Allawi, leader of the coalition in Iraq. He revealed that the White House pressure in order to participate in the power existed only on paper.
According to Gordon, the demand was not normal, "and he held President Obama himself dial secret with Iraqi President Jalal Talabani. And exercise better skill persuasive, Obama asked Talabani, do a save political cross step down. This was the fourth of November 2010 The plan was to take Iyad Allawi Talabani. "
Gordon said that the Obama administration thought it with Allawi, a secular Shiite, and the head of the Sunni-backed widely, Iraq will have a more inclusive government and can stop worrying drift toward authoritarian rule under Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki.
Gordon reveals that Obama did not fulfill the agreement because Re Talabani, who denied the request.
With Obama is proud that the withdrawal of U.S. troops in the past year evidence that he had carried out his promise to end the war in Iraq, but the New York Times believes that reducing the war, requires much more directed forces. In the case of Iraq, as Gordon says, the U.S. goal is to leave a stable Iraq government representative, and to avoid a power vacuum that could be exploited by neighboring states and terrorists and to maintain U.S. influence enough so that Iraq becomes a partner, or at least not an opponent.
But the Obama administration has failed in some of those goals, The attempt by Obama and his senior aides to form a post exceptional arrangements in power between Maliki and Allawi never materialized. As well as the agreement has not been achieved by keeping the small U.S. forces in Iraq to train Iraqi forces and protect Iraqi airspace. The plan to use civilian Americans to train Iraqi police have been shut off. The result sees Gordon: Iraq is less stable locally and less possibility to rely upon internationally than they were perceived by the United States.
Gordon emphasizes in his article that Obama decided to accept Maliki as prime minister, hoping to accomplish agreement brings Allawi and other members of the coalition in Iraq to the herd. But participation in power engineering has not been easy. It was the Americans stand down: The new Council will establish a policy, with Allawi in his presidency, and but tiff Maliki and Allawi on the powers of the Council were and still.
And some members of Allawi's party maintained ongoing government office. But the most important attribute that White House pressure in order to participate in the power existed only on paper.
