Al-Sadr, the face of the new Iraq


Newsweek has an extensive profile of Moqtada Al-Sadr, who went from being the oft-dismissed son of a prominent Shiite imam to one of the most powerful men in the post-war Iraq. It’s an interesting read, and it shows just how much of a mess the Americans have made thus far in the region, and how they’re essentially screwed whether they withdraw their troops now or later.
