Sadr was last seen in public in Iraq attending a religious ceremony in the holy city of Kufa on May 25, when he denounced the United States as part of an "evil trio" with Britain and Israel.
U.S. officials said at the time that they believed Sadr had been out of the country for the previous four months, and they said in July they believed he had left Iraq again.
Sometimes I think al Sadr doesn't mind that when he leaves, we go in and clear out some of his guys. Like a Stalinist purge without Sadr having to order it.
Then again, he might be there begging for more money, bombs and women. Ooops...that's Huey Lewis and the News.
Or, it could be that the Iranians knew we'd be chatting with them and so did Sadr, so he's over there pleading his case.
Maybe it's (d), all off the above?
