by | Apr 29, 2009 | Interviews

Patrick Cockburn, Middle East correspondent for The Independent, discusses the duplication of (illusory) successful U.S. strategies in Iraq for use in Afghanistan, the U.S. drone missile strikes that kill a few Taliban but anger millions of Pakistanis, Nouri al-Maliki’s continued assertion of Iraqi sovereignty and how the Iraqi Sunnis are squeezed between contradictory political pressures from Islamic radicals and the Iraqi government.
