Iraqi PM Maliki still gets Hezbollah newsletter

Newly appointed Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Al Maliki committed a gaffe of sorts today when he admitted that he still reads Hezbollah’s regular newsletter. He later ammended this by saying he does not subscribe to the newsletter, but that it arrives with his regular Hezbollah alumni material each year.

This is on the heels of President Bush praising Mr. Maliki as a “vital ally in the war on terror,” and Senator John McCain’s characterization of congressional Democrats’ condemnation of Maliki, as “dangerous and irresponsible.”

The White House has directed questions about US alliances with terror organizations to the press office of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, who it says is staying abreast of these matters.
