Iraq Food Memo Genuine
Iraqslogger has confirmed that the food shortage memo from Iraq is the real thing. It’s a memo from the Baghdad Embassy (not the military), and surprisingly, it was indeed sent out in Microsoft Word form with a photo of a Lenox eagle figurine as a logo. So we apologize for getting this one wrong—but not for questioning the legitimacy of an official memo that used a picture from the internet instead of an official logo.
The good news is that the food shortage is now over.
