Major General William Caldwell talks to Al Jazeera's Sami ZeidanIn this episode of Talk to Jazeera, Al Jazeera's Sami Zeidan talks to Major General William Caldwell, the spokesman for the multinational forces in Iraq.
Four years after the fall of Baghdad, Al Jazeera asks Caldwell if he thinks it was right to invade Iraq and whether the US military imagined then that the war would go down the road it has.
Caldwell tells Al Jazeera that he believes the Iraqi people have opportunities today that were not available to them before the invasion but he acknowledges that mistakes have been made.
The extent of al-Qaeda's presence in Iraq today is, he says, one element that he had not foreseen.
He tells Al Jazeera that the multinational forces are talking to armed groups in Iraq and discusses the benchmarks that will tell the multinational forces when it is time to leave the country.
