Some Interesting Articles on the Web (July 11, 2014)

The Washington Post has an article on their website (posted July 3) by Ali Khedery, a former U.S. diplomat who served in Iraq. He argues that the U.S. should not have supported Maliki for as long as it has. The article has been gaining some attention, including a report on NPR this morning. “Why we stuck with Maliki — and lost Iraq”

James Jeffrey, a former U.S. ambassador to Iraq, disagrees with some of what Khedery wrote in his article. “It’s not Washington’s job to tell Iraq who its leaders should be”
