American Forces Drawn into Bitter Fighting in Iraq

Hosted by  • 

Yesterday, President Bush said Iraq was returning to "normalcy," but today he conceded the situation is "dangerous and fragile." He called the Maliki government's efforts to confront criminal elements a "defining moment" in Iraq. The President's comments followed US air strikes in both the southern city of Basra and a Shiite militia stronghold in Baghdad, where the government has declared a curfew through Sunday. We get an update on the situation from a journalist, documentarian and aid worker in Iraq.
