Meltdown in Iraq: is it time for an exit?

Amid the deteriorating security situation in Iraq, one of the most pressing problems we face – thanks to the dangers which face journalists - is finding out what is really happening and how ordinary Iraqis see it. Fresh from his on-the-ground reporting in Iraq, the Independent’s Middle East Correspondent Patrick Cockburn comes to the ICA to talk with Simon Jenkins about the state of the country and what can be done.

Patrick Cockburn is author of The Occupation; War and Resistance in Iraq; Simon Jenkins is Guardian columnist and author of Thatcher and Sons: A Revolution in Three Acts.
