Egypt, Iraq in talks to boost military ties (makes perfect brotherhood sense) #tcot #obamaworld

Talks centered on 'training Iraqi officers and exchanging military expertise,' as well as regional and international efforts to support stability in Iraq, one source said. The meeting was attended by armed forces chief of staff Lieutenant General Sami Annan and several members of the ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces which took over after president Hosni Mubarak's ouster last year. More than 200 people have been killed in Iraq since US forces completed their withdrawal last month from the country.
