Vote On US Troops In Iraq Delayed

Iraq's parliament speaker says a vote on a proposed security agreement with the United States has been delayed until Thursday.

Speaker Mahmoud al-Mashhadani's announcement came after a planned session to hold the vote did not go through Wednesday.

Intense deal-making among Iraqi factions delayed the vote. The Shiite-led government is struggling to meet demands of factions including a Sunni Arab bloc seeking concessions in return for its support.

Under the agreement, U.S. forces would stay in Iraq through 2011.

    I am a bit confused. I thought that this deal had already been reached and reported to us. What gives?
