British Correspondent Patrick Cockburn on Iraq's Growing Sectarian Divide and the Myth of "Success" in the U.S. "Surge"


Blurb from DN! --

As a new civil war threatens to explode in Iraq between U.S.-backed Iraqi government forces and Shia militiamen, we go to London to speak with Patrick Cockburn, Iraq correspondent for the London Independent. Covering the invasion and occupation from the ground in Iraq for the past five years, Cockburn has been described as “the best Western journalist at work in Iraq today.” He is author of the new book Muqtada: Muqtada Al Sadr, The Shia Revival and the Struggle For Iraq.
