Meanwhile in Iraq

With the election of President Obama, the US public made it pretty clear that it didn't want to hear about Iraq any more, and in general the media has complied. As a result, the recent explosion of sectarian violence bordering on civil war has seemed comparatively out of the blue. I found this New Yorker piece by Dexter Filkins helpful in catching up on recent history and how things came to this pass.
