John Glaser, Assistant Editor at Antiwar.com, discusses his discovery of a WikiLeaks State Department cable about US soldiers who ordered an airstrike to coverup their massacre of an Iraqi family in 2006; how this revelation may complicate a deal to extend US occupation beyond the 2011 SOFA deadline; the nearly 30,000 trainers, advisers and mercenaries slated to remain in Iraq – too small for fighting wars, but plenty big to administer yet another client state; the ongoing protests in Bahrain, and the mainstream media’s hesitancy to cover the embarrassingly anti-democratic tactics of an allied country; going from bad to worse in Somalia; and the UN report on Afghan-run torture prisons.

  2. If Maliki forces U.S. out, won't U.S. have to look for an excuse to reinvade in another decade or so?

  3. He names Qatar as a client state paid for by the U.S.? I'm pretty sure Qatar pays its own way; there's a big difference between an Egypt or a Jordan and the Gulf states in that sense.
