Description

This publication explores Iraq’s triangular relationship involving Al-Qaida, the Sunni tribes, and the Iraqi government (or the U.S. in place of a governing force in the early stages).  Al-Qaida and the Iraqi government/U.S. forces have been competing for Sunni tribal allegiance.  Lessons learned and future prospects for Iraq and this "triangle" of actors there are examined.
