Sistani slams media bias about Iraq

Coming from a guy who appears to play his cards very close to the chest and is usually pretty reserved in his public proclamations, this is a fairly major statement.

“Your country is rich [referring to Iraqi's] and I want you to set aside differences between yourselves and your Sunni brothers and stand like a formidable mountain against attempts by certain satellite networks which try to disrupt this unity because these networks exaggerate about the reports of deaths and explosions and depict them in a way as if tribal war is underway in Iraq,”
Of course complete silence ensued in the western media -- this was reported by the Iranian press.
