running interference

Here's one for Howard campaigners Bush, Armitage and Powell, from commenter Shaun over at public opinion:

"Based on the US & UK backflip in the UN security council the newly appointed Iraqi government will, when installed, have the right to direct Coalition troops and to ask them to leave.
So the situation is: The US Govt has given the Iraqi government the right to withdraw Australian troops but feels a future Latham Australian Govt has not got the right to do so.
Perhaps we can raise the issue at the UN to see if we can be granted sovereignty."

Good one, Shaun.
