Ha ha! Roll out the welcome mats...
It seems that ex-insurgents will be resettled in Minnesota afterall! Check out this story from Gulf News (English text).
Whatever happened to the "they'll fight if they don't get what they demand" talking-points as peddled by the 'experts'? It's also weird that some self-styled Iraq 'experts' who write profusely about the Awakening groups did not see fit to link to this particular story...maybe because it puts their narrative, as well as their expertise, in doubt.
Reader of Talisman Gate may remember a prediction along these lines that I made sometime in the past.
I wonder if these ex-insurgents would end-up voting for Obama in 2016?
