NY Times - Compromise On Iraqi Hydrocarbon Law Collapsing

BAGHDAD, Sept. 12 — A carefully constructed compromise on a draft law governing Iraq’s rich oil fields, agreed to in February after months of arduous talks among Iraqi political groups, appears to have collapsed. The apparent breakdown comes just as Congress and the White House are struggling to find evidence that there is progress toward reconciliation and a functioning government here.


This is not a good development, but given that the meetings to find a compromise are continuing it's not the end of the world either. If they don't have something worked out in two weeks I will get more worried.
