Iraq likes Barack, and Bush is pouting:
The White House expressed unhappiness Monday about Iraqi leaders' public backing for Barack Obama's troop withdrawal timetable. And it said that Baghdad may be trying to use the U.S. presidential election as leverage in talks about the future of American's military presence and obligations in the war.

Yeah, because the GOP isn't doing that at all by running McCain almost exclusively on the supposed merits of the Iraq troop surge.
"We don't think that talking about specific negotiating tactics or your negotiating position in the press is the best way to negotiate a deal," Perino said after Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki was quoted in a magazine article supporting the 16-month troop withdrawal timeline proposed by Obama, the Democratic presidential candidate. "However, we understand that they're a sovereign country and they'll be able to do that," Perino said. "We're just not going to do it on our end."

Of course not.

They'd just rather imply that the Iraqis are seeking to muddle in our politics by supporting the Democrat (so we, as true Americans, must counteract that by voting for McCain). This isn't exactly NSA code-breaking here.
