    As fighters linked to al-Qaeda take over parts of Anbar province, we ask how big a threat they pose to Iraq and Syria. To discuss this, Inside Story presenter Dareen Abughaida is joined by Mark Kimmitt, a retired brigadier general in the US army, and former military spokesman for coalition forces during Operation Iraqi Freedom; Mowaffak Alrubaie, a former Iraqi national security adviser and aide to Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki; and Salah Hashimi, a legal adviser to the Iraqi League, a UK-based rights group.
