U.S. Eyes Covert Plan to Counter Iran in Iraq

Military commanders and intelligence officers are pushing for greater authority to conduct covert operations to thwart Iranian influence in neighboring Iraq, according to U.S. officials....Those in Iraq with shady ties to Iran will freak out. They will put more pressure on Maliki not to request an extension for US presence. Could the envisioned operations be covert enough to bypass that?

Mookie and many others. Maliki owes these people for helping him get a second term in office. They have a lot of clout. Maliki doesn't exactly like nor trust them, but he's stuck with them.
