A string of recent deadly bombings has reminded the world that Iraq is still very much a war zone.

Elections are coming in January, after which the US says it is going to speed up its withdrawal. Yet without any hint of irony, the US accuses Iran of "foreign interference".

On this week's Fault Lines Josh Rushing talks to Christopher Hill, the US ambassador to Iraq, about these issues, and ask if America is finally ready to apologise for the devastating human costs of the war.
