Maliki wants us out of Iraq

It seems the only person left who wants the US to stay in Iraq is John McCain. Even Bush is agreeing on "a general time horizon" now. Maliki wants a timetable for US troop withdrawal, though apparently whenever a statement of his to that effect gets out he quickly backtracks. I wouldn't want his job: caught between an Iraqi public that generally loathes the occupation and his Washington puppet masters who need him to justify it.

Larison (via Ambinder via Appel on Daily Dish) has an extensive post on this. This BBC article describes some of the back and forth.
