Maliki ally: Crash of Iraqi F-16 in Arizona done by U.S. in order to send a message

Tom Ricks questions a Maliki ally who thinks the U.S. purposely crashed an Iraqi plane.


He alleges that the U.S. was sending a message by crashing that F-16. This means that he thinks the death was intentional, and an act of murder.

I can’t believe that the Obama Administration treated these guys as allies.

Speaking of Iraq, I know several people who shouldn’t click on this.
