Bush Could Have Limited Fallout From Prison Scandal

Henri Barkey, chair of the international relations department at Lehigh, talked with the Online Journal about the fallout from the Iraqi prisoner scandal and what it means for U.S. relations with the Arab world. The White House's efforts to control damage in the scandal went to the highest level Wednesday when President Bush went on Arab television to condemn the abuse as "abhorrent." But his comments may have been too little, too late, says Henri Barkey, a former State Department analyst. Barkey, a 50-year-old native of Turkey, worked at the State Department during the Clinton administration focusing on Iraq and the Middle East.
