VOA - Anti-American Iraqi Shi'ite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr has made his first public appearance since the start of a major U.S.-backed security crackdown in February.
The radical cleric attended Friday prayers at a mosque in the southern city of Kufa and delivered an anti-American sermon, telling worshippers that occupation forces should leave Iraq.
Larkin nailed this one yesterday, correctly calling al-Sadr's resurfacing and move to fill the power vacuum that now exists in Iraq. See his post for more on al-Sadr's plans and prospects.
