  • Rating: NR
When he was elected Iraq's prime minister, Nouri al-Maliki was so inexperienced that President Bush himself scheduled frequent video conferences to school him in the art of politics. FRONTLINE’s "Losing Iraq," U.S. television’s first big-picture look at what went wrong and how we arrived at the current chaos, premieres July 29 on PBS and at pbs.org/frontline.
