Abdel Aziz al-Hakim

BBC:
One of Iraq’s most powerful Shia politicians has condemned the arrest of Iranians by U.S. forces in Iraq as an attack on the country’s sovereignty.

The comments by Abdel Aziz al-Hakim, made in a BBC interview, are seen as the strongest expression yet of Iraq’s concern about the U.S. approach to Iran.

They follow two recent U.S. raids in which Iranians were arrested.

I do not like nor trust Mr AL Hakim , but he was right about criticizing the US forces that acted like true cowboys attacking the Iranian embassy , ignoring Iraq “soveirgnty and kurdistan’s too ” (if there is any) if the US had a bone to pick with iran , it should have gone through the right channels , ministry of interior who would have gone via the ministry of exterior . but the way the barged and destroyed those offices and the mess they created was unbeliebale (shown on tv ) doors broken , cabinet , drawers on the floor, computers on the floor it was crazy .
Mr AL Hakim is still grateful to hav been a guest for over 2 decades in iran (when the sunni Dictators in Saudi kuwait , et.. ignored his persecution at the hand of saddam hussein. he needed a place to stay safe, iran invited and welcomed him , so he is grateful and i respect him for that .

Dear Mr. Bush,

Just hang this guy higher than you did to President Hussein and his aides. Nobody in this world can criticize King George because he’s always right even when he killed wrongly.
