ABSTRACT
THREE years after the fall of Saddam Hussein, there were still 130,000 American troops in Iraq. President George W. Bush made US strategy clear: 'As the Iraqis stand up, we will stand down.' But, by the summer of 2006, it was apparent his strategy wasn't working, resting as it did on the shoulders of Iraq's inexperienced and frankly overwhelmed new premier, Nouri al-Maliki (pictured with Bush). Was al-Maliki the solution, or part of the problem? In final episode of this exemplary series, Tony Blair, US national security adviser Stephen Hadley and al-Maliki are among those discussing the bloody battle between Sunni and Shia extremists that followed Saddam's toppling.
