Iraqi President Jalal Talabani arrived in Jordan late Sunday for medical treatment amid conflict reports about his health. Sources in Amman and from Talabani's office in Baghdad told CBS News that the 73 year old had had a stroke, but in a televised interview his son said that Talabani suffering from fatigue or exhaustion.
The Iraqi ambassador in Jordan said for Talabani was there for a medical checkup intended to determine the reasons for his feelings of exhaustion. He also said that Talabani had not suffered a stroke or heart attack.
Like the area needs any more chaos. I don't think there's any way the press will be upfront about what's really happening.
