U.S.-Iraq security plan may fail

Over the weekend, protesters in Iraq voiced their discontent with the preliminary security plan. The United Nations resolution that governs the U.S. presence in Iraq expires at the end of 2008.

If the UN resolution expires before a security agreement with the Iraqi government is met, the U.S. forces would technically be occupying Iraq and American military troops would be subject to Iraqi law, not U.S. law.

Dan Senor, of the Council on Foreign Relations, speaks with Martin Savidge about the implications of a failed U.S.-Iraq security pact.


Scott Peterson of the Christian Science Monitor reports from Baghdad on the protests, security plan and the future of U.S. involvement in Iraq.
