Let freedom reign
Figures within Iraq's majority Shia alliance have for the first time urged Ibrahim Jaafari to stand down as PM to help a national unity government form...
This week senior Shia politicians said US ambassador to Iraq, Zalmay Khalilzad, had told them President George W Bush "doesn't want, doesn't support, doesn't accept" the retention of Mr Jaafari.
And the punchline:
Mr Jaafari responded by saying the comments undermined Mr Bush's commitment to democracy in Iraq.
