Iraq minister slams U.S. over Mosul assault slip

BAGHDAD / WASHINGTON: Iraq’s defense minister criticized the U.S. Sunday for declaring a timeframe for an offensive to recapture ISIS’ northern stronghold of Mosul, saying military commanders should not show their hand to the enemy.

Khaled al-Obeidi said the timing of the Mosul assault was for Iraq to decide, and that a U.S. Central Command official who predicted the attack was likely to take place in April or May had no knowledge of the issue.
