Military Analysis: US Losing Influence in Iraq

Fox News reports that “as violence and political turmoil tear through a war-wrecked Iraq, military experts are warning Congress that Al Qaeda-affiliated terrorist cells are regrouping and working together not only in Iraq but in the entire region to undo a decade of U.S.-led progress.”

“’We left (Iraq) on the edge of being stable,’ Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer, a former military intelligence officer, told Fox News.”

“While saying it’s clear the job was ‘not done,’ he warned: ‘Al Qaeda as an entity is coming back strong within the region and is doing things to destabilize governments, which, at this point in time, are still friendly to us.'”
