As the American military drawdown in Iraq continues, the issue of protecting our Iraqi allies is at a critical stage. This week, the List Project released an advocacy paper, Tragedy on the Horizon, which examines how the American withdrawal from Iraq will impact the thousands of Iraqis who are currently working for th U.S. and surveys the history of withdrawal by Coalition allies in Iraq, as well as a number of historical examples. Despite the decline in day-to-day violence, the List Project foresees a disastrous ending for many U.S.-affilaited Iraqis if there are no contingency plans for their evacuation in the final stages of the U.S. withdrawal.
