REWIND - Iraq After The Americans

Please Log in or Register to watch this video.

In keeping with Barack Obama's presidential campaign promise, by 2012, the US had withdrawn its troops from Iraq and US spending in Iraq was just five percent of what it was at its peak in 2008. Following the withdrawal, Fault Lines travelled across Iraq to take the pulse of a country and its people after nine years of foreign occupation and nation-building. Rewind spoke recently to Raed Jarrar, Middle East and North Africa Advocacy director at Amnesty International US, to find out what has changed since the film was made. Jarrar says things have only worsened since the American occupation and withdrawal.
