Maliki playing sectarian card

clipped from

Partisan politics make for a dirty game, but nowhere more so than in Iraq. Lt. Gen. Aboud Qanbar, the Iraqi in charge of the Baghdad security plan and the Interior Ministry, has reportedly presented Prime Minister Maliki with a dossier of 15 parliamentarians who should be stripped of immunity and prosecuted for ties to terrorists.

With the bloody power politics of Baghdad, many MPs no doubt have ties to paramilitary groups, but this list of 15 curiously only includes Sunni members of Maliki's political opposition, and almost all are members of the National Dialogue Front.
