Via Andrew Sullivan, a blogger reports from the debate in the Iraqi parliament over the security agreement.
It seems like 70% of the Iraqi MP’s have no idea what is in the agreement.
The opponents of the agreement are using this big national issue to blackmail the government, and they are forgetting their duty to their voters.
Some of them try to use our religion to convince their voters that this agreement will make Iraq submit to the Americans, and they use people’s ignorance about what exactly this agreement includes to make them support their party’s position.
Uninformed legislators......pursuit of political agendas at expense of voters.......invoking religion.....exploiting voter ignorance. They seem to have picked up some of our political system quite well.
