Real News Video with Gareth Porter: The geopolitical fact of Iraq

Porter: The US will have to leave Iraq to a government that tilts more to Iran than to the US

"Speaking of President Obama's withdrawal plan from Iraq, Paul Jay talks to Gareth Porter, investigative historian and journalist on Iran-Iraq relations. Porter says that in spite of the U.S. efforts to create a U.S. - friendly regime, "Iraq is going to be under a Shi'ite government which leans more towards Iran than towards the United States. That's a geopolitical fact that all the U.S. troops in the world are not going to change.""
