Iraq violence prompts questions about U.S. withdrawal

A bombing in the Iraqi town of Bathaa on Wednesday was the latest in a series of attacks in recent weeks — a wave of violence seen by many as an attempt to destabilize Iraq in advance of a drawback of American troops at the end of this month.

At least 28 people were killed and dozens were injured in the attack.

John Nagl, the president of the Center for a New American Security and a former army officer who served in Iraq, joins Martin Savidge to discuss preparation for the troop pullout and a national referendum coming up in July on the Iraqi-American security agreement.
