ABSTRACT
This article presents information about the negotiating that is taking place in Iraq between the Shiites, Sunnis, and Kurds with regard to Iraq's new government. No group won a clear majority in the recent election, but the many Sunnis are skeptical about their prospects of being included in the new government. The U.S. wants to keep the Sunnis involved and the Shiites want them involved as long as they're not representing the insurgents.
