Mission Accomplished? Iraq Violence Climbs to Highest Level in Years

A close look at who's behind the increase in sectarian violence in Iraq

On Tuesday, a bombing near a mosque in northern Iraq claimed the lives of at least 12 Sunnis. According to reports, no one group has claimed responsibility. This attack follows months of increased sectarian violence resulting in more than 5,000 Iraqi deaths since April.

Joining The Real News Network to unpack the increase in sectarian violence is Sami Ramadani. Sami is a senior lecturer in sociology at London Metropolitan University and was a political refugee from Saddam Hussein's regime.
