At the end of this video clip (you may have to watch a brief ad first) an impassioned woman parliamentarian pleads with the US not to withdraw and abandon Iraq to its chaos, since, she says, we caused it by drawing al Qaida to Iraq. Her appeal not only has logical consistency, it tugged at my conscience, too. I hate when that happens.

On the Daily Show on 5/10, Reza Aslan said that Al Queda is only a small percentage - I think he said 7% - of the insurgency in Iraq. He said that if the US were to withdraw, the other insurgents would slaughter what remains of Al Queda there.
