[via PDK]  There are a lot of conflicting news stories coming out of Iraq.  Part of the diversion to keep us guessing on timing….  Right now they are letting us know their legislative holiday is supposed to start on May 9th….BUT, if they budget is not done…they will extend this session until it is. We of course have contacts on the ground over there that say they have already passed the budget but have not announced it yet. That they are waiting to execute it because they are working on the exchange rate change. We were expecting this back and forth to happen at the end. Just like what they did in Kuwait. The morning of their revaluation they ran an article saying no rate change for 6-9 months then they did it that same day. This is the kind of news we are expecting to get.
