"LA" (stands for "Liberal Avenger"?) posted that Iraq's PM Maliki had blown off President Bush regarding the talks in Jordan.
"Dana" got in one of the first replies, and put it well:
I didn’t even hear about this until you mentioned it — and by that time, I had already seen the video of Presidents Bu[s]h and al-Maliki meeting!You go, Dana.
Al Jazeera has the Arabesque version of the story (don't forget that they are pawns of the Bush administration):
Three-way talks cancelledOriginal plans for three-way talks were abandoned at the last minute but talks between Bush and al-Maliki went ahead in Jordan.They met for a working breakfast at the hotel where Bush is staying.Explanations for the change to the scheduled talks between Bush, al-Maliki and King Abdullah were confusing.White House officials said the Jordanians and the Iraqis jointly decided three-way talks were not the best use of time as both parties would be meeting the president separately.
