I have just concluded a long and wide ranging interview with John Burns, the New York Times’ lead correspondent in Baghdad. It will play in its entirety over two hours on Monday’s show.
My first interview with Burns was in February. (Transcript here and audio here.) In this conversation, I ask Burns about the surge, the credibility of General Petraeus in his eyes, the dangers al Qaeda would pose in the aftermath of a withdrawal, and the prospects for Iraq should America walk away.
Burns is widely regarded as among the very greatest journalists of our time, and his candor and comprehensive responses should not be missed.
