U.S. Embassy Denies It Reports on Wealth of Iraqi Political Leaders
U.S. Embassy Spokesman, Michael McClellan, denied recent reports in Iraqi media that the U.S. Embassy has prepared a report on the wealth of Iraqi political leaders. “Embassy officials meet regularly with Iraqi leaders across the political spectrum and engage them on a wide range of issues across the bilateral relationship. It is not our practice to track the wealth or financial concerns of Iraqi officials,” said McClellan.
