interview done yesterday afternoon on cnn's 'in the money' with Robert Kaplan of Atlantic Monthly which gave a refreshing and optimistic view of what's happening in Iraq and what their future holds for them. I searched everywhere for a link to it on their site and couldn't find a transcript or even a mention of that interview. CNN has a new 'pipeline' feature for watching live and immediate interviews and stories, but it wasn't in there as an archive either that I could find.
Here's the generations the "world" has to work with to achieve a true democracy in Iraq. A long road ahead. And it has to be worked by others than an armed uniformed group.
