Two Car Bomb Attacks Kill 27 in Iraq

Tuesday, June 21, 2011

Suicide bombers detonated two car bombs in the city of Diwaniya today, in central Iraq, killing 27 people and wounding dozens of others. The attacks were targeted at police barriers outside governor Salim Hussein Alwan's compound, but he was not harmed. Though there's news this week that President Obama will soon lay out his plan for possibly withdrawing troops from Afghanistan, it's still murky as to how long U.S. troops will remain in Iraq, especially given this recent turn of events. Mike Schmidt, from our partner The New York Times, joins us live from Baghdad to discuss was happened and what this could mean for U.S. involvement in Iraq.
