Per Fagereng interviewed Raed Jarrar about the new Bush-Malaki agreement and more. Jarrar, who was born and raised in Iraq, is Iraq consultant for the American Friends Service Committee.
He says: "While the agreement gives lip service to protecting Iraqi sovereignty and democracy, it in fact undermines these very things. It is a major step in the attempt to make permanent U.S. domination of Iraq, thus undermining any real sovereignty. And it attempts to circumvent any democratic process whereby the Iraqi people or parliament have a say over agreements like this.
