Shi'a Unity Deal Explodes US Proxy War Myth
WASHINGTON - The agreement announced Monday between Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki
and a Shi'a resistance group called the "League of the Righteous" (Asa'ib al-Haq)
formally ended the group's armed opposition to the regime in return for the
release of its leader and eight other Shi'a detainees. This deals a final blow to
the U.S. military's narrative of an Iranian "proxy war" in Iraq.
