QUOTE: Iraq’s Fallujah operation gives PM political reprieve
By Associated France Press, May 24, 2016
AFP: Zaid al-Ali, a fellow at Princeton University and the author of “The Struggle for Iraq’s Future,” said the operation could aid Abadi, but only for a while. “The Fallujah campaign offers Abadi a reprieve from the political crisis in Baghdad, but it is temporary at best,” said Ali. “Regardless of how successful the assault against (IS) in Fallujah will be, Iraqis will continue to demand dramatic reform,” he said.
