Iraqi Elections and US Troop Withdrawal

Hosted by

Saturday's Iraqi elections went off so well that, "If American forces want to speed up their withdrawal…the Iraqi forces are ready enough."  That's according to a legislator allied with Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, quoted in the Chicago Tribune. Liz Sly, the Baghdad Bureau Chief, discusses potential opportunities for trouble when results are made known as well as the possible impact on American troop withdrawal.
