By 2014 Iraq will receive it’s first delivery of US F-16s

By 2014 Iraq will receive it’s first delivery of US F-16s. The Obama administration agreed last year to sell 36 F-16 fighter jets to Iraq in a multi-billion dollar deal. This despite the fact that Iraqi Prime Minister (essentially the president) Nouri al-Maliki has been accused of detaining and brutally torturing more than 1,000 political opponents in secret prisons, denying them access to legal counsel. Maliki is also the secretary-general of the Islamic Dawa Party.
