    White House sends press corps al-Maliki praise for Obama plan

    CRAWFORD, TX (CNN) – An embarrassing slip up for the White House press office Saturday, when an aide hit the wrong button and mistakenly sent to the news media a Reuters article saying Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki backs presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama's troop withdrawal plan.

    White House spokesman Scott Stanzel says, "It was a mistake. Clips list for staff was supposed to be the addressee."

    The Obama campaign quickly took advantage of the mistake, forwarding an ABC report detailing the incident to its press list.

    This is not the first time the White House has emailed in error. But its timing is particularly embarrassing as the Bush administration's recent agreement with al-Maliki on a "general time horizon" for withdrawing U.S. troops from Iraq is being cited by some as resembling Obama's proposal that U.S. forces should leave within 16 months.
