Muqtada al-Skeedaddle?

This is interesting if it is true

As details of the border closure became public, senior Bush administration officials said radical Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr fled Iraq for Iran two to three weeks ago out of fear for his safety.
However, Iraqi sources have not confirmed this information and call it a rumor. Salah al Agaili, a spokesman for al-Sadr and a member of his parliament bloc, told CNN that al-Sadr is still in Iraq.
As recently as Thursday, al-Sadr’s office said he was in Najaf.
If he is in Iran, it is not his first trip there. Al-Sadr has made half a dozen official trips and an unknown number of personal visits to Iran in the last few years.
Senior administration sources said they believe al-Sadr fled in anticipation of the U.S. military’s troop buildup and a crackdown on militias, and because of fractures with extremist elements within his militia.

Very interesting. Going back to base to get more instructions?
Update: I see Sis posted a wee bit ahead of me. Oh well.
