Guess which country kicked out U.S. congressional delegation

A U.S. congressional delegation was kicked out of Iraq after the leader of the group, U.S. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., asked Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki if a portion of future oil revenues could be used to pay back the United States for money spent over the course of eight years following the 2003 U.S. invasion to oust Iraqi President Saddam Hussein.

The ouster came amid efforts by U.S. officials to get al-Maliki to request an extension of U.S. troops in Iraq past the Dec. 31 deadline when all U.S. troops are supposed to be out of the country.

“We called the U.S. embassy…and we told them to ask the congressmen to leave Iraq,” according to Iraqi government spokesman Ali al-Dabbagh. “We don’t want them here. What they said was inappropriate.”
