    The election of Barack Obama as the 44th President of the United Sates represents an historic American event and a landmark milestone in the story of Iraq.

    President Obama's plan to bring US combat troops home in 16 months, however, raises important security questions.

    Our guests this week are former US ambassador to Iraq David Newton, who is also a scholar at the Middle East Institute; Peter Harling, the director of the Iraq-Syria-Lebanon Project at the International Crisis Group; and Iraqi elder statesman and member of the Iraqi Parliament Adnan Pachachi.
