Full Text: SOFA Draft, as Submitted to MPs
McClatchy Publishes Translation of Arabic Text
11/19/2008 9:10 PM ET
McClatchy Newspapers has published an English translation of the current draft of the US-Iraq Status of Forces Agreement, which has been approved by the Iraqi cabinet and currently before the Iraqi Parliament for ratification or rejection.

Discussions in Parliament of the controversial measure are so tense that they prompted heated debate and physical altercation involving anti-SOFA MPs in the Sadrist Current and the guards of Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari.

McClatchy's translation, performed by members of its Baghdad bureau, can be read in full here.
