Obama Praises New Iraqi Government as Inclusive

As reported by the AP. . . . but the fact of the matter is that the Sunni remain largely marginalized, and the government has yet to be formed, and Obama is putting a smiley face on a still troubled situation.
The winners: Iran, Iraq's religious Shia parties, and al-Qaeda, which will likely attract recruits among Sunni Iraq-nationalists and Arab nationalists who realize that they've been left out in the cold.
The losers: Iraq's Sunni, of course; and Mr. Obama, who will be pressured even more to keep US troops in Iraq when al-Qaeda in Iraq boosts its attacks on what is going to be most assuredly a Shia-led government with strong links to Iran.
And if Iraq's security forces can't dampen down the attacks, the Mahdi Army can be mobilized quickly.
