OR WE THINK SHE DID.

FROM THE TCI WIRE:
ALL IRAQ NEWS carries the story that Moqtada al-Sadr is discussing teaming with Ayaad al-Allawi for a political slate in the upcoming elections.
Moqtada is one of the most powerful Shi'ite politicians. His only real challenger to the title is probably Ammar al-Hakim.
Ayaad al-Alawi is a Shi'ite as well.
He proved his political strength in the 2010 election when he devised an integrated political slate, Iraqiya, which won the 2010 elections and which would have led to Ayaad being prime minister were it not for then-US President Barack Obama overturning the election results with The Erbil Agreement.
(For those keeping track, when the US government interfered with that election, Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State.)
A teaming of Moqtada and Allawi is not all the strange.
Nouri al-Maliki sees both as political enemies. (Nouri was prime minister from 2006 through 2014 and wants to be prime minister again.)
And the two were part of a coalition attempting to get a no confidence vote against Nouri in 2011. (Then-US Vice President Joe Biden pressured then-Iraqi President Jalal Talabani to stop the process.)
If they do form a political slate, it would not be surprising if they attempted to bring in Ammar and others they had worked with in 2011 as well.
