The Sunni-Shi'ite Split
Iraqi President Ghazi al Yawar was Tim Russert's guest this morning on Meet the Press, and he had an interesting take on the Western notion that the Iraqi Shi'ites will electorally overwhelm the minority Sunnis.
From the rought draft of this today's RSN:
Russert asked Yawar about the Shi'ite majority crushing the Sunni minority. The President corrected Russert: the Sunnis are "about 50-percent" of the population:
"The Kurds are Sunnis."
