Antiwar Radio: Gareth Porter

Gareth Porter, independent historian and journalist for IPS News, discusses the Iraqi Army’s targeting of the Mahdi Army, his suspicion that Cheney arranged this with Maliki on his recent trip, the doom this could spell for the occupation, Iran’s relative influence with the Mahdi Army and the Badr Corps of the Hakim faction and the neoconservative propaganda that Iran backs al Qaeda.
