Sadrists Protest New US-Iraq Pullout Deal

Several thousand supporters of anti-American Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr protested Friday against an emerging U.S.-Iraqi security agreement, saying it would turn Iraq into a U.S. colony.

Al-Sadr and other critics fear that the pullout deal will bind the U.S. and Iraq in a long-term security relationship, instead of restoring Iraqi sovereignty.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, Iraqi sovereignty was never really in the cards, from the perspective of this administration.
