"Yesterday, we heard of the Iraqi government raid on Camp Ashraf," said parliament speaker Ali Larijani. "This is appreciated, that the Iraqi government decided to clean Iraq from the dirty presence of terrorists. However, it was a late move," he said Wednesday during an open session of parliament broadcast live on state radio.Amerikanerne fik ikke noget at vide.
The U.S. military distanced itself from the raid, saying it was not given any notice about the action. Members of the Iranian group claimed that American soldiers observed the clashes but did not intervene.Irakisk økonomi vil være noget hø i lang tid fremover, så det er måske meget godt, at Irak knytter sig lidt tættere til Iran, end det er anstændigt. Iran er også ved at samle Team Shi'a til parlamentsvalget. Og derefter får USA travlt med at komme ud, hvis de skal nå det til tiden.
"I know of no advice or assistance that was requested of U.S. forces," Army Lt. Gen. Charles Jacoby told reporters Wednesday at the military headquarters on the western outskirts of Baghdad.
