Deadly Attacks Rattle Iraqis and Families of American Troops

Wednesday, August 17, 2011

Monday was the deadliest day of the year in Iraq. Insurgents waged 42 coordinated attacks across the country, leaving almost 100 civilians and security forces dead, and hundreds injured. The attacks came ahead of America’s planned withdrawal from Iraq. Can Iraqis handle their own security and should America focus on our own problems here at home? 

We're checking in with Lubna Naji, an Iraqi doctor on her surgical rotation in Baghdad. We also speak with Rosana Cambron, the mother of Army Sgt. Arturo Cambron, who is currently serving his third tour in Iraq.
