NYTimes Confusing Shiites with Sunnis

From Holden:

New York Times headline:

Iraqi Shiites Denounce Plan for Talks Between U.S. and Iran

But it’s really the Sunnis who are pissed.

Iran and the United States agreed Thursday to hold direct talks on how to halt sectarian violence and restore calm in Iraq, a plan that was denounced today by Iraq’s largest bloc of Sunni parties.


But the Iraqi Tawafuq Front, a coalition of Sunni groups, denounced news of the talks “as an obvious unjustified interference in Iraq’s affairs.”

The group said, in a statement released in Baghdad, that “it is not committed, under any circumstances, to any results” of the negotiations.

Update: The Times has corrected their headline.
