Iraq ‘unraveling’ puts U.S. civilians at risk

• The
 A leading Republican senator warned Sunday that Iraq was “unraveling” in the wake of the withdrawal of US troops, putting at risk the thousands of American civilians in the country.

Senator John McCain, who lost to Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential election, blamed the deteriorating situation on the Obama administration’s failure to leave behind a residual US force.

“I think there’s clearly an unraveling going on which could eventually lead basically into three different kinds of states in Iraq,” McCain said on CBS television’s “Face the Nation.”
