Diyala remains a strategically vital focal point for some of
Iraq’s most pressing problems, yet its Provincial Government
remains ill-equipped to confront the challenges facing it.

(S/NF) Mr. Vice President, your upcoming trip to Iraq
comes at an important time in Iraq’s political calendar. As
the Islamic month of Ramadan draws to a close, Iraqi
political leaders are furiously at work negotiating potential
alliances in advance of the January 2010 parliamentary
elections. As evidenced by the strong showing of his
coalition in the 2009 provincial elections, Maliki has
boosted his national popularity by assembling a commendable
security record and is now weighing whether to challenge his
Shia rivals and form his own coalition to try to recapture
the post of Prime Minister. تتمة

increase in security personnel along the Syrian border,
despite numerous media accounts of thousands of Iraqi police

Excerpt from document
(SBU) Summary: Despite the Independent Higher Electoral
Commission’s (IHEC’s) recent certification of the results in
the July 25 Kurdish Regional Elections, there remains
lingering resentment among the Kurdish opposition and
Christian parties that fraud, manipulation, and intimidation
played a significant role in the outcome. Embassy and RRT
contacts complain bitterly that although the dominant
Kurdistani List (composed of the Kurdish Democratic Party
(KDP) and the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK)) had in fact
won the most votes, it did not win as many as had been
garnered through underhanded tactics. تتمة

Mujahideen-e-Khalq (MEK); (2) increased domestic pressure to
act against the MEK and the latter’s animosity to the Iraqi
state necessitate GOI action; (3) the GOI plans to relocate
the MEK after Ramadan to Muthanna province in the south; and
(3) the GOI would be willing to offer temporary legal status
to the MEK only after they agree to relocate within Iraq. END

has improved from the early days when a fist fight broke out
between two Iraqi generals. The USG and GOI have worked
through the SA,s joint subcommittees (JSCs) to sort through

their Iraqi co-chairs, Minister of Defense Abd al-Qadr
al-Mufriji and Minister of Interior Jawad al-Bulani. تتمة

billion are still optimistic since oil exports for the
remainder of the year are likely to remain well below the
forecast of two million barrels of exports per day. تتمة
