John Burns, Back from Baghdad: U.S. Effort In Iraq Will Likely Fail

U.S. Effort In Iraq Will Likely Fail: "A day after returning to the U.S., after another long term as bureau chief in Baghdad, John Burns of The New York Times said on Bill Maher's Friday night HBO program that he now feels, for the first time, that the American effort in Iraq will likely 'fail.'

Asked if a civil war was developing there, Burns said, 'It's always been a civil war,' adding that it's just a matter of extent. He said the current U.S. leaders there--military and diplomatic--were doing there best but sectarian differences would 'probably' doom the enterprise. "
