The White House says it wants to see newly-named Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al Abadi form a new government, but embattled outgoing Prime Minister Nouri al Maliki and his supporters are protesting his removal. As prime minister for the past eight years he says nothing is final until the supreme court rules on his legal appeal to stay in power. Maliki rose to power during the American occupation of Iraq. But the White House too has had enough of him. The White House says Maliki must let the political process move forward.
