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 concern is not the actual dealing with the refugees, as to how long will this be? What is the day-after scenario?" he said. "You cannot have a prolonged crisis."
"The key concern we have with Syria has been on the spillover into Iraqi security," Mr. Faily said.
