8:46 AM [duffy2] This is some very promising information. Oh, please "Let it Be". If the youtube video doesn't come thru, there is a link below. At last the pieces are fitting together.

 Now, as Treasuries need resolution, information exchanges are taking place. Now, we all need each other, so truth is leaking. As always, once it becomes multi party dependent, finding the real access point is the key. What we have ONLY established today is as follows:

 * The RV's have to be ready to underpin the new Dinar Market Exchange Rate by 21th December, for launch on the following (24th) Monday which, is not a Holiday in the Muslim world. Even more so, Iraq has to be underpinned by a new Treasury Bond launching early February, Dinar based.

* Bernanke is fully behind it now playing Catch Up.

* The money from the Global Settlements has to be used to underpin the release of the Dinar Exchange over the next week. Which means, the GS is critical each day now, or it has knock on consequences for the RVs next week. If not accomplished, the Iraqi Bond market will fail. The GS has to go first, before the RV's, this having only been established today. No one seemed to know that.

Mutlaq poses initiative calls to guarantee the independence of the Iraqi judiciary and address for anyone who wants to revive the sectarian
Friday, 21 December 2012 11:41

BAGHDAD / obelisk: ask the Deputy Prime Minister and leader of the Iraqi List, Saleh al-Mutlaq, Friday, initiative called through to ensure the independence of the Iraqi judiciary and address for anyone who wants to revive sectarian, but he returned to looming failure to respond to his initiative to invite the Iraqi List, to withdraw from the government and the House of Representatives and the political process, describing arrest of members of the Protection and Finance Minister Rafie al-Issawi unfortunate thing.

Blaino: BAGHDAD - The president of Iraq is in a coma after suffering a stroke, sources tell Fox News. Jalal Talabani's health has reportedly deteriorated significantly, and The Associated Press reported his medical team is attempting to stabilize him. Reuters reported Talabani is in "critical but stable condition."

Talabani, a rare unifying figure who is seen to rise above the country's ethnic and sectarian fault lines, has been actively involved in trying to mediate an ongoing crisis between Iraq's central government and the country's Kurdish minority.

The spokesman, Ali al-Moussawi, told The Associated Press on Tuesday that Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki is at the hospital where the president is being treated. Doctors have not decided whether Talabani will continue to be treated in Baghdad or will be flown to another country for treatment, he said. He was unable to provide further details.


TLAR:  I find it very interesting that all of these accusations about Maliki are coming out at this time following the arrival of the international community to protect the bank. 

To me it is starting to look like a well-orchestrated  movement that is now receiving leaked documents of all kinds of  meant to incriminate Maliki and the SOL and erode their base.. 

We know the CIA and intelligence community are knee deep in Iraq.  I personally believe that someone has given the green lite to destroy Maliki.  There is just too much leakage in the last two weeks about him to just be a coincidence.  

Whoever thee powers are, they have decided to get rid of Maliki.  I think behind the scene, everybody is involved both within and without of the country..


12-20-12 Unirod: There are probably agreements on the part of the CBI and GOI in regards to investment and Banking Laws that needed to be passed in a timely fashion. I find it hard to believe that the major shareholders were negligent on making a major equity risk deposit of 200M USD.

That's simply a drop in the bucket for these guys. There is too much not said in this article that makes me suspicious of the CBI. Warka is still opening accounts and conducting business as usual, which if they were completely untrustworthy, then why would the CBI allow them to stay open?

There must be a serious battle going on behind the scenes that will forever change the private banking system in Iraq IMO. This should be my 1000k post Hooorayyyy!!


TLAR:  It looks as though the SOL, the biggest crooks in Iraq, is scrambling to control or influence these investigations.  They want the investigations limited to corruption only by Shabibi and Saleh.  Unfortunately for them the international Community says they are going to investigate "all the corruption".  This is an argument the SOL can't win. 

They know they will be exposed and it's driving them nuts.  They have totally lost control to the UN.  I believe this is all part of the plan to expose these clowns to theft, corruption and embezzlement., all of which they are guilty of.   I've said this before, "Maliki, don't you just hate a paper trail?"

 "For his part, said a member of the Finance Committee for the coalition of state law, "the Secretary Hadi Abbas" that the team UN can not bypass the government, and that its mission is limited to fact-finding if the issue has affected the bank itself or not; because it reflects the general economic situation of Iraq.

Iraq finance minister says staff members kidnapped
4:24p.m. EST December 20, 2012

BAGHDAD (AP) : Iraq's finance minister on Thursday accused a "militia force" of kidnapping members of his staff and said he holds the prime minister personally responsible for their safety.

Finance Minister Rafia al-Issawi leveled the charges just hours after Iraq's ailing president was flown to Germany for medical treatment following a stroke. The 79-year-old president, Jalal Talabani, is widely seen as a unifying figure who is able to rise above Iraq's often bitter politics and mediate among the country's ethnic and sectarian groups.

Al-Issawi made the accusations in a late night press conference, where he called on the parliament to hold a vote of no confidence against Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki's Shiite-led government.

The move is certain to enflame Iraq's simmering political tensions, which have been heightened since an arrest warrant was issued against one of al-Issawi's political allies a year ago.

Al-Issawi is a member of the Sunni-backed Iraqiya bloc, al-Maliki's main political rival. He was flanked during the televised address by senior members of the bloc, including the parliament speaker, Osama al-Nujaifi, and Deputy Prime Minister Saleh al-Mutlaq, who last year branded al-Maliki a dictator in a TV interview.


Obama makes a call to Essawi in response to the arrest of Essawi's head of his guards

Meanwhile, the source pointed out that the US Ambassador to Iraq, Robert Beecroft, visited Essawi and informed him that the US Embassy has protested to the Foreign Minister, Hoshyar Zebari, about the incident.

Earlier in the evening, a military force raided the office of the head of the Minister's protection force; while the Minister was in his office at the time.

Iraq: The Iraqi government approved an investment project for the construction of a private free-trade zone south of Baghdad in efforts to boost the country's economy.

The Ministry of Finance's General Commission for Free Zones "approved two requests submitted by a group of local investors to set up a private free-trade zone on an area of no less than five dunams (12,500 square metres) in the area of Uwaireej, south of Baghdad, to be used for commercial activities", Sabah al-Qaisi, the commission's chairman, told Mawtani.

"This investment project will be the first of its kind in the country," as no free-trade zone area was ever set up by the private sector before, al-Qaisi said.

The project was approved "in accordance with the instructions and guidelines stated in the Free Zones Law No. 3 and after extensive studies of its economic feasibility", he added.

Al-Qaisi said the investing parties will prepare special project designs by contracting a consultancy bureau, and then submit these designs to the Free-trade Zones Commission for approval in order to start construction.
