Stanford Poli Sci Professor on Iraq situation by Mitch E. Perry11/30/06
Jim Fearon is a professor of Political Science at Stanford University. Many analysts see Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki in an extremely uncomfortable situation â€“ in many ways dependent upon the U.S. and their 150,000 or so troops in his country â€“ but also from critics â€“ like Moktada al-Sadr and others, who accuse him of being a stooge for the U.S. (roll tape#1 o.q.â€? Sunniâ€™s in government nowâ€?)
Thatâ€™s Stanford University Political Science Professor Jim Fearonâ€¦He spoke to us from Stanford late yesterday on President Bushâ€™s visit to Jordan to meet with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki .
