Zebari, the word the western press refuses to utter

Another Baghdad bombing -- at least 7 killed -- and the western media are all over that.

But what about the story we kept noting last week?

The one we kept noting that the western media was ignoring.

The former Minister of Foreign Affairs who was now the financial minister and who was accused of corruption?

Hoshyar Zebari, the Iraqi most praised by Hillary Clinton?

What about that?

RUDAW reports:

Iraq's national assembly is expected to vote today on whether veteran Kurdish politician Hoshyar Zebari can continue as the country's finance minister following a question-and-answer session with on August 27.

Zebari told Rudaw he is hopeful he will survive the possible vote of confidence in the deeply divided parliament and described the efforts to remove him from office as "politically motivated" and "without substance."

Does this mean that finally the western media may pick up on the story?

Or is expecting them to do their jobs just expecting too much?
