America will ignore the Iraqi government based on a "caretaker prime minister" grey area.
US troops in Iraq have halted their anti-ISIS operations, awaiting an Iranian response to the assassination Trump ordered.
Unmentioned so far in US UK media, Iraq PM reportedly confirms #Soleimani not in #Iraq to kill Americans as US claims, but at Iraq govt invitation in a move to reduce Saudi Iran tensionhttps://t.co/6WS0Kf9eBN
NB Some in US consider Saudi Iran tension vital to security of Israel

Report of what Iraqi PM said to Parliament.
Not only did #Iraq vote to kick us out, PM said #Suleimani was carrying a diplomatic response after PM had been lyingly asked by #Trump to mediate a toning down between #iran and #SaudiArabia. So our leaders lied to us too. Again. https://t.co/TzcdqDhUuI
