Al-Jazeera Video: What did the US think of Nouri al-Maliki?

"The leaked documents allege that Iraqi prime minister Nouri al-Maliki operated a "detention squad," a group of Iraqi army soldiers responsible for rounding up his political opponents.

They also reveal that US troops worried he would be perceived as using his position for sectarian power grabs, and show him as a frequent target for assassination attempts."
