Sistani a Politician? Or Not?

This article appeared in the LA Times today:


The writer has a problem however. It seems she forgot to proofread the piece, as did her editors.
She says that Sistani is not interested in politics:

"Although the 74-year-old Sistani insists that he wants nothing to do with politics, he has been arguably the most important figure on the Iraqi political scene almost from the day the Americans entered the country."

But later, she says:

"Sistani's associates say he has prepared for this moment for years. Although he has lived a cloistered life in the Shiite holy city of Najaf, immersed in religious study, he is said to be passionately interested in politics and can converse in depth about different systems of government."

So which is it? Interested, or not? You decide. I guess....

I'll be back
