James D. Fearon, PhD Biography
||Theodore and Frances Geballe Professor in the School of Humanities and Sciences at Stanford University
||Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should the US Have Attacked Iraq?"
"To avail itself of more attractive policy options, the Bush administration (or its successor) must break off its unconditional military support for the Shiite-dominated government that it helped bring to power in Baghdad. Washington's commitment to Maliki's government undermines U.S. diplomatic and military leverage with almost every relevant party in the country and the region."
