Need To Know | The prospects for a peaceful Iraq | PBS

Duration: 14:28
Program: Need to Know #116
Broadcast Date: Aug. 20, 2010

You may hear those words, "advise and assist," but you're not likely to hear the word "victory" when officials talk about Iraq these days. To help us evaluate what's been achieved, and what still hangs in the balance in Iraq, Need to Know talks with Middle East scholar and history professor at the University of Michigan, Juan Cole. He writes the widely read blog Informed Comment, and is author of "Engaging the Muslim World."
