We Asked Him To

Not only is Nouri al-Maliki’s walkback unconvincing and pretty hollow, now comes word that he only issued it after the US Embassy in Iraq asked him to.

But after the Spiegel interview was published and began generating headlines Saturday, officials at the U.S. embassy in Baghdad contacted Maliki’s office to express concern and seek clarification on the remarks, according to White House spokesman Scott Stanzel.

This is seeming to be a tougher and tougher sell for the White House.
