Two top U.S. generals told a congressional committee that Iraq could slide into all-out civil war, and the departing British ambassador to Iraq wrote a memo citing de facto partition as a more likely near-term outcome for Iraq than stable democracy. Diane and her guests talk about the role of U.S. forces in Iraq.
