NEWSMAKER INTERVIEW: Iraq's ambassador to Washington says the Obama administration doesn't fully grasp the consequences of failing to more aggressively combat a surging al Qaeda threat inside his country, pointedly suggesting that President Obama has been less engaged with Baghdad than his predecessor.
A bloody resurgence of al Qaeda in Iraq is prompting Baghdad to ask the United States for more weapons, training and manpower, two years after pushing American troops out of the country.
A resurgent al Qaeda is trying to push Iraq toward a civil war, Iraq's ambassador to the United States said on Wednesday.
"Our investigation showed there were no indiscriminate bombs," Faily said.
Ambassador Lukman Faily, said in an interview that Baghdad has investigated the reports of barrel bombs that activists and officials say allegedly were dropped over a two-week period last month in the cities of Fallujah, Garma, and Saqlawiyah.
