How United Is Iraq's Unity Government?

Hosted by

Defense Secretary Robert Gates has been publicly disappointed at Iraq's failure to achieve political reconciliation. Today, five more ministers quit, leaving no Sunnis in Prime Minister al-Maliki's cabinet. Is the government on the verge of collapse? We talk with Iraq's Ambassador to the UN, Iraq Study Group member Leon Panetta and others. (An extended version of this program was broadcast earlier today on To the Point.)
