    By Omar al Jaffal for Al Monitor. Any opinions expressed here are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Iraq Business News. Iraqi parliament Speaker Salim al-Jabouri issued a*warning against*involving the tribes in political disputes Aug.*14. His warning came a few days after the tribes affiliated with*Defense Minister Khaled al-Obeidi and parliament member*Mohammed al-Karbouli*interfered in a political dispute as the two*exchanged*accusations of corruption during the Aug.*1 parliamentary session. abouri seemed greatly concerned about the involvement of Iraq’s tribes in political conflicts. During a visit by a*tribal delegation to the parliament, he told a number of Iraqi tribal leaders, “Preserving the independence of the tribes in Iraq is an important and essential safeguard. The ongoing attempts to drag the tribes into side conflicts are designed to undermine the building of Iraqi society and the Iraqi state.” Iraq’s*tribes*are social institutions that have*preserved many customs and traditions that run contrary to the*laws of the state.*The tribes manage their issues, even serious crimes*such as*murder,*under a “blood money” system. A*majority of Iraqi politicians seek to please them, as they represent*large numbers of voters in local and parliamentary elections. Athir al-Jassour, a political science professor at Mustansiriya University in Baghdad, told Al-Monitor, “Since the Iraqi state was founded, there have been problems regarding the division of power, and customs and traditions have defined many of these problems, in determining both*political and social approaches to them.” He added, “Among the various conflicts within Iraqi society, power was divided between religion, tribes*and the rule of law, and the balance of power is tipped in favor of the one who can influence and protect.” Iraqi politicians’ complex relationships with their tribes must be managed with a*law regulating tribal affairs. The adoption of this law is an attempt by the Iraqi parliament to control growing tribal strength. Jabouri and other politicians fear tribal*involvement*in political conflicts, as*the tribes’ power*threatens*to undermine the authority of the state. The majority of the tribes are armed, and some even possess heavy weapons, which means that the outbreak of any tribal fighting could lead to*divides*no less dangerous than sectarian ones. Because of these tribal institutions’ complex relationships with each other, their involvement in politically motivated*fighting*may drag other tribes into armed conflict. Obeidi and Karbouli’s is not the first*political dispute to*reach the tribal councils. What makes*this time*different and more dangerous*is that the tribes have offered their absolute support to their affiliated politicians against other politicians. The defense minister*made his appreciation clear by posting a*video clip*of his tribe meeting*on YouTube. Source: Iraq-BusinessNews.com. Post your commentary below.

    By Simon Kent. Unconfirmed reports suggest a Saudi Arabian national under the nom de guerre “Abu Wathbah al-Saudi,” has been shot dead in Mosul, the last urban stronghold of the self declared Islamic State. The terrorist’s role was apparently the recruitment of child soldiers. If true, it would only be one in a string of assassinations of IS members in the city. Last year, it was reported that two IS members were shot dead in Mosul by men smoking cigarettes on a street corner. In an apparent trap, the IS fighters were*killed*as they approached the men to arrest them for*smoking, which is strictly forbidden in IS territory. Other reports suggest Sunni resistance groups have reported IS locations to Coalition warplanes. (Source: Iraqi News) Source: Iraq-BusinessNews.com. Post your commentary below.

    Hiya Wolverine! Yeah, going back in the memory banks (it's been a loooong time) I remember you and a few of the others from the old gang. Not brewing anymore, as I left my brewing equipment in Arizona when I moved back to Pittsburgh. But soon I'm going to pursue my photography full-time, going so far as relocating to an area where I can fully pursue this. Hence, I'm moving some dinar to fill out my lens lineup before I move next year. My new photography site is in my signature, so feel free to visit. :D

    By Simon Kent. Battling through an apocalyptic landscape of black smoke from burning oil, (fighters from the self declared Islamic State hoped this would hinder air strikes) Iraqi soldiers have reached the center of Qayyarah. Snipers held up the advance, before soldiers were able to capture a government compound. Qayyarah is just 60 km south of Mosul, and the gradual advance, with the aid of military pontoon bridges and Coalition air support, suggests IS are either crumbling fast or pulling back for a harder fight in Mosul. Led by a Sunni Colonel from the Jubbour tribe, the troops have found 1000 local residents still awaiting aid convoys with almost no access to clean water. Last month, the army recaptured a nearby airbase once known to Americans as Qayyarah West, and now US troops are back at the facility in preparation to lend a supporting role in the final assault on Mosul, IS’ last urban stronghold in Iraq.

    By Simon Kent. Coalition aircraft conducted 4 air strikes against the self declared Islamic State over the past 24 hrs, with “tactical units” being targeted near Ramadi and Hit in Anbar, a front of the Iraqi government and local anti-IS tribes. Another strike hit a tactical unit near Sinjar, which is close to Kurdish Peshmerga units. “Tactical units” are most likely pick up trucks that IS favor for moving across dirt tracks between towns in the vast, flat expanses of desert in Western Iraq. The small number of strikes in these areas, announced free of IS earlier this year, shows the group are still trying to retain a presence, while Coalition allies clearly work to ensure they do not get such a foothold by calling in air strikes.

    By Simon Kent. Prime Minister Haidar al Abadi (pictured) has remarked that the resumption of pumping oil into the Kurdish export pipeline from Kirkuk–from 70,000 bpd to an expected 150,000 bpd, is due to preserving the reservoir in one of the world’s oldest oilfields. Previously oil was being re-injected by the federal North Oil Company who did not want the Kurds to have access to it after a payment dispute. During the Iran-Iraq war, Saddam Hussein encouraged very rapid extraction from Kirkuk, a supergiant field with a high API, making it easier to refine. Rapid extraction*is thought to have damaged some reservoirs in the formation. Abadi also noted the importance of using gas in the field, which was impossible when oil was re-injected by the federal North Oil Company. Abadi noted, “We have to produce oil in order to get gas. This is a very old oil field, if this field does not produce oil, it can be degraded.*So we were told to pump oil from Kirkuk to Ceyhan.” (Source: Reuters) Source: Iraq-BusinessNews.com.

    By Simon Kent. Two Iraqi brothers have constructed a robot dubbed “Alrobot” (“the robot”) to send into battle against the self declared Islamic State. The slick looking vehicle, the size of a small beach buggy, has an approximately 1 kilometer range and is controlled via laptop. If deployed, it would be among the first generation of unmanned fighting vehicles that can actually shoot targets. Currently, the US military is still developing these weapon systems, and the US Marine “Gladiator” robot (based on a similar principle to Alrobot) is still under development. This could, in theory, put the Iraqis ahead of the curve, although it is unclear how well armored the rocket firing device is, which also has a machine gun mount. For now, Alrobot is likely to prove a mere headache for ISIS, but since they already have a lot to deal with, that may be*no bad thing (Source:*Defense*one) Source: Iraq-BusinessNews.com.

    Clinton Foundation donors include dozens of media organizations, individuals By JOSH GERSTEIN, TARINI PARTI, HADAS GOLD and DYLAN BYERS 05/15/15 03:39 PM EDT NBC Universal, News Corporation, Turner Broadcasting and Thomson Reuters are among more than a dozen media organizations that have made charitable contributions to the Clinton Foundation in recent years, the foundation's records show. The donations, which range from the low-thousands to the millions, provide a picture of the media industry's ties to the Clinton Foundation at a time when one of its most notable personalities, George Stephanopoulos, is under scrutiny for not disclosing his own $75,000 contribution when reporting on the foundation. The list also includes mass media groups like Comcast, Time Warner and Viacom, as well a few notable individuals, including Carlos Slim, the Mexican telecom magnate and largest shareholder of The New York Times Company, and James Murdoch, the chief operating officer of 21st Century Fox. Both Slim and Murdoch have given between $1 million to $5 million, respectively. Judy Woodruff, the co-anchor and managing editor of PBS NewsHour, gave $250 to the foundation's “Clinton Haiti Relief Fund" in 2010. The following list includes news media organizations that have donated to the foundation, as well as other media networks, companies, foundations or individuals that have donated. It is organized by the size of the contribution: $1,000,000-$5,000,000 Carlos Slim Chairman & CEO of Telmex, largest New York Times shareholder James Murdoch Chief Operating Officer of 21st Century Fox Newsmax Media Florida-based conservative media network Thomson Reuters Owner of the Reuters news service $500,000-$1,000,000 Google News Corporation Foundation Philanthropic arm of former Fox News parent company $250,000-$500,000 Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publisher Richard Mellon Scaife Owner of Pittsburgh Tribune-Review $100,000-$250,000 Abigail Disney Documentary filmmaker Bloomberg Philanthropies Howard Stringer Former CBS, CBS News and Sony executive Intermountain West Communications Company Local television affiliate owner (formerly Sunbelt Communications) $50,000-$100,000 Bloomberg L.P.

    "The president of Judicial Watch Tuesday told syndicated radio talk show host Howie Carr that the Clinton Foundation will cease operations after the Washington-based watchdog released 725 pages of emails revealing the pay-to-play culture at Secretary Hillary R. Clinton’s State Department.“I don’t think the Clinton Foundation is going to survive until the end of the week,” said Tom Fitton, the president of Judicial Watch, which released the emails that were produced by the State Department at the direction of a federal judge after JW had to file a federal petition compelling the State Department to fulfill its request for emails to and from Huma Abedin, a long-time aide and confidante of the Democratic nominee for president. “You really think that, Tom? You really think they can be shamed in any way, shape or form?” asked Carr, who had just finished telling Fitton that the Associated Press had discovered that out of 154 non-governmental people Clinton met with as America’s top diplomat, 85 were donors to the Clinton Foundation or another Clinton-affiliated organization with combined contributions exceeding $156 million. Of the 85, more than 40 gave at least $100,000 and another 20 gave $1 million. Fitton said he was stunned by the response when it was revealed in the latest batch of emails that there was an attempt to get a meeting with the secretary for a Nigerian-Lebanese billionaire through the Clinton Foundation, rather than official State Department channels. “They said: ‘Well, we weren’t elected.'” Fitton said the shuttering of operations has already begun. The Clinton Foundation no longer accepts contributions from foreigners and corporations and they have cancelled the annual Clinton Global Initiative, he said. “I think they are going to get pressure–and they are–from the left and the right–to shut the foundation down,” he said. Foreign contributions make up 40 percent of the foundation’s revenue and once they stop taking in new money the foundation is done, he said. At the end of the segment, Carr asked Fitton what was coming next from Judicial Watch. Fitton said there were 200 more Abedin emails coming from the State Department from the same request that produced the 725 pages of emails released Monday."

    " State Department Reacts to Clinton E-mail Scandal" National Review Sponsored Links by THE EDITORS August 23, 2016 10:32 AM "Huma Abedin must be a remarkable woman: She has held down four of the worst jobs in politics, several of them simultaneously: right hand to Hillary Rodham Clinton, fixer and patron-patronizer for the Clinton Foundation, an editor of a journal spawned by a major al-Qaeda financier, and wife to Anthony Weiner. Mrs. Carlos Danger has some explaining to do. So does Mrs. Clinton. More, in fact. Mrs. Clinton plainly has lied about her e-mails, repeatedly, and then lied about lying about them. The new e-mails released in response to ongoing litigation from Judicial Watch include 20 previously unseen exchanges between Mrs. Clinton and her chief aide, Ms. Abedin, which now brings the total number of official, work-related e-mails Mrs. Clinton failed to turn over to investigators to just shy of 200 — so much for those claims that these were private communications about yoga classes and Chelsea’s wedding plans. It is clear why Mrs. Clinton did not want to release these e-mails: They detail precisely the Clinton Foundation corruption that critics have long alleged. Specifically, the e-mails detail Huma Abedin’s role – while she was on the State Department’s payroll — acting as a fixer for the Clinton Foundation, making sure that influential friends overseas, especially donors, had access to the U.S. secretary of state in order to keep their egos inflated and their wallets deflated. Abedin already admitted during legal proceedings that one of her assignments while working at State was seeing to “Clinton family matters,” which is inappropriate on its face. But what those matters consisted of is a fairly obvious case of rewarding Clinton Foundation donors with access to the nation’s No. 1 diplomat. Who were those donors? Crown Prince Salman of Bahrain wanted a sit-down with Secretary Clinton but was rebuffed; Clinton Foundation executive Douglas Band intervened through Abedin to try to find a work-around for the crown prince, who gave donations to the Clinton Global Initiative totaling $32 million through 2010. Donations to the Clinton Foundation came in from the kingdom itself and from the state oil company. Band also intervened to secure a visa for a foreign athlete held up because of his criminal record, doing so at the behest of donor Casey Wasserman, a Hollywood sports-entertainment mogul, whose foundation has contributed between $5 million and $10 million to the Clinton Foundation (here Abedin demurred). Others who got the royal treatment via Band and Abedin: Slimfast boss S. Daniel Abraham (another $5-million-to-$10-million donor), Clinton Foundation benefactor and Clinton campaign donor Kevin O’Keefe, Democratic fundraiser Maureen White ($75,000), telecom entrepreneur and Democratic fundraiser Jill Iscol ($500,000 to $1 million, also co-chair of Clinton’s finance committee during her Senate race), and other Democratic players and corporate benefactors. Yes, it is awkward to conduct a criminal investigation during a presidential campaign. It is more awkward to conduct one involving a sitting president. It is important to keep in mind what the Clinton Foundation mainly does: It does precious little in the way of actual philanthropy ($9 million worth out of $140 million in revenue for 2013) but instead spends almost all of its money on salaries and travel expenses for various Clintons (including Chelsea Clinton, now its vice chairman), Democratic allies, toadies, flunkies, hangers-on, and assorted minions. It is a full-employment sinecure program for friends and family of the Clinton political operation, and very little more. There is a case to be made — and it should be made — that Clinton obstructed justice and made false statements to investigators regarding her private server and e-mails. The FBI dropped the ball on that, but that ball can be picked up again. Yes, it is awkward to conduct a criminal investigation during a presidential campaign. It is more awkward to conduct one involving a sitting president. Either option is more desirable than declaring elected officials above the law — and Mrs. Clinton repeatedly and willfully violated laws intended to ensure honesty, transparency, and accountability in the State Department. Huma Abedin may have been the conductor of influence, but the wrongdoing here is all Mrs. Clinton’s. Serial dishonesty, self-serving, and influence-peddling: These are the Clintons, after all. No one can say he is surprised." Read more at: http://www.nationalreview.com/article/439258/hillary-clinton-huma-abedin-troubling-questions-influence-peddling-corruption

    Bomb shell!!! "Clinton State Department Stonewalled A.P. Three Years August 23, 2016 5:59 PM It was a long wait. Today’s blockbuster report from the Associated Press about Hillary Clinton’s meetings with Clinton Foundation donors during her time as Secretary of State contained the following nugget: “The AP sought Clinton’s calendar and schedules three years ago, but delays led the AP to sue the State Department last year in federal court for those materials and other records.” Three years ago. The long wait was in keeping with a practice of slow-walking such requests for information. In April, the State Department explained the fact that Clinton ignored 237 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests by saying that she was sitting Secretary of State at the time the requests were filed. According to the Washington Free Beacon, Clinton received 240 FOIA requests from 2009 to 2013 but only responded to three of them within the legally required timeframe. Among the organizations that filed unanswered requests were the AP, Gawker, Judicial Watch, Citizens United, and Vice News. Some of these groups subsequently sued the State Department for failing to respond to their requests for information from Clinton’s records. The State Department attempted to justify its delays by claiming that the number and complexity of records requests continued to increase until it was impossible to process them. Of course, the effect of the slow processing was to make it impossible for the A.P. to do the report that rocked the political world this afternoon.

    Breaking News: Report: Over Half of Clinton’s Non-Government Meetings with Foundation Donors NRO STAFF August 23, 2016 3:53 PM According to a report from the Associated Press this afternoon, over half of the non-government employees who met with Hillary Clinton during her time as Secretary of State had contributed or pledged money to the Clinton Foundation. Some of these people had donated personally, while others gave money through other companies or groups. Combined, these 85 donors – out of 154 people with private interests with whom Clinton met at State – gave something around $156 million to the Clinton family charity. Forty of these individuals made gifts of over $100,000 and 20 gave over $1 million. The overlaps between these meetings — in which many of the individuals requested Clinton’s assistance with a variety of issues – and the subsequent sizeable donations to the Clinton Foundation lend further credence to charges that the Clinton Foundation was a pay-to=play operation. Meanwhile, at least 16 foreign government officials who met with Clinton during her time at the State Department donated up to $170 million to the Foundation, but the AP did not include this in its investigation because those meetings were directly tied to Clinton’s diplomatic responsibilities.

    By Simon Kent.* Iraq’s Oil Minister Jabbar Ali al Luaibi has met with IOCs and asked them to do their utmost to increase production in Iraq’s southern fields, which has fluctuated in 2016. The announcement, relayed by Ministry of Oil spokesman Asim Jihad, comes over a month before a meeting on the 26th of September at the*International Energy Forum, where OPEC members will discuss quotas and output, seeking to ease the current glut. As of August, total Iraq exports (including the Kurdish region) were 4.6 million bpd, boosted by a new deal between the North Oil Company and the Kurdish Regional Government to send federal government crude from Kirkuk into the Kurdish pipeline through Turkey. This could add another 150,000 bpd to exports. (Source: Reuters) Source: Iraq-BusinessNews.com. Post your commentary below.
