Shuster On Countdown: Iraqi Reconciliation Not An Option

MSNBC's David Shuster, filling in for Keith Olbermann tonight on Countdown, spoke with author and Assistant Managing Editor for The Washington Post, Rajiv Chandrasekaran, about today's revelation from high ranking Iraqi officials that a reconciled Iraqi government is unattainable, and never has been. The political situation has only grown worse since the beginning of President Bush's surge and has become nothing more than a struggle for power along sectarian lines.

As David and Rajiv point out, this means big trouble for President Bush because the surge was allegedly meant to give the Iraqi central government time to reconcile and it appears that's not going to happen -- period.

Shuster really did a great job subbing for Keith, you can send feedback to MSNBC here. Back to back hours of Olbermann and Shuster would be a great thing...
