The truck bombs and mortar fire flattened buildings, collapsed highways, and left city residents stunned at the sudden increase in violence. The attacks came just as Iraqis consider a vote on whether to accelerate U.S. troop withdrawal. Today we discuss how the situation in Iraq is evolving with New York Times Baghdad correspondent Sam Dagher and Harvard Law professor Noah Feldman. Noah Feldman served as an advisor to the Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq in 2003.
