Grudging Admissions From the New York Times
We are, of course, cheered by the news that representatives from Iraq’s three main ethnic groups — Shiite, Sunni and Kurd — finally saw some benefit in compromise.
For the New York Times regarding Iraq, that's nearly giddy.

Mirabile dictu. After the Iraqi government nearly dissolved itself, it managed pass a few pieces of legislation, although not one pertaining to oild legislation. Now Tiny Claude can have his operation!
Sorry. "Oil." I am dick fingered when it comes to typing. I can find no record of oil revenue legislation having passed.
What is your source on how revenue is being shared? I did find references to the Kurdish government angering the central government in October of last year by enetering into exploration agreements w/ Hunt Oil. I also recall hearing at that time that most major players were reluctant to strike independent deals for fear of angering the centarl government.
