At the end of 2012, the governor of the Central Bank of Iraq Sinan Shabibi was charged with corruption, and forced out of office. At first, his deputy Matheher Mohammed Mudher Salah tried to put a positive spin on events, and was even mentioned as a possible replacement to his boss. Instead, he ended up being placed under house arrest for several weeks. Now itís been reported that Salah has been retired upon orders from Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. The entire affair was seen as a power grab by the premier who disagreed with the Central Bankís policies.

Maliki just kicked out the head of the CBI, arrested and then retired his deputy, and detained much of the top staff as well, and you say the CBI runs everything? Surely you jest or you don't understand the political situation in Iraq.

My reference to "Central Banks" was not intended to represent the CBI, I'm talking about the really big fish that control the world markets.
