Exclusive Interview with Iraqi President
My friend, FNC's man in Baghdad Gordon Robison, reports about his exclusive interview with Iraqi president Jalal Talabani (on his Mideast Analysis site and on the Fox News site). He and another Fox News representative were invited to dine with Talabani, his chief of staff and two Iraqi cabinet ministers at the end of the Ramadan fast. As reported by Robison, Talabani expressed his frustration with U.S. forces on turning security responsibilities over to the Iraqi police, and predicted that the U.S. would be required to maintain a presence in Iraq for the long term, to assist Iraq in dealing with potential threats from Syria, Iran and perhaps Turkey.
Robison did live spots on FNC about the interview at 5 and 7pm EST on Sunday.
