'Memorandum of understanding' is a blueprint for a long term occupation of Iraq

Al-Hayat reports in Arabic that the Sadr Movement and the Sunni Iraqi Accord Front both rejected the 'memorandum of understanding' between the US and Iraq signed by PM Nuri al-Maliki and US president George W. Bush two days ago.

They complain that neither leader has the constitutional authority to make such an agreement without involvement of the legislature.
They also complained that the document does not specify a timetable for withdrawal of US troops.
One Sadrist called it a blueprint for a long-term civil Occupation of Iraq.
