GeorgeCasey acknowledged that the security situation had become more difficult in the past few months, and said Iraqi leaders must find common ground on key issues dividing the country if progress is to be made.
Casey made the comments as he finished a visit to a northern Baghdad neighborhood to talk with local officials about an operation currently under way to crack down on violence in the capital.
Casey said that for progress to be made, unity among Iraqi leaders was crucial.
GeorgeCasey was the eldest of four daughters and two sons, and at the time of the family's removal to America he was two years of age.
Casey was appointed chief by Mayor Gleason, thus becoming the first chief engineer in the paid department, which lie assisted in organizing, but in 1893 there was a political change in the administration and lie was deposed.
Casey contested the matter in the courts and was reinstated, but in the following September was again discharged, and the case is now being once more tried, with the prospects of success in his favor.
