BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Faced with walkouts by members of his government and increasing criticism from U.S. officials, Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki told U.S. senators Sunday to butt out of his country's domestic politics.
Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, shown August 16, accused U.S. lawmakers of "severe interference."
"There are American officials who consider Iraq as if it were one of their villages, for example Hillary Clinton and Carl Levin," al-Maliki told reporters in Baghdad. "This is severe interference in our domestic affairs."
(The Prime Minister of Iraq need not to worry about America's politicians. If he's campaigning for the Republicans then he gave the Dems a big gift. al-Maliki's involvement in his own country's affairs should be his biggest concern. Not the U.S. We've been there getting killed for his people while they screw up every opportunity worse than the neo-cons.)
