Confused Iraqi. Episode 3: 2004-2012 Iraq
Episode 3 looks at the period 2004-2012, and coming of age in a country figuring out what the post-Saddam era might be. It covers Noor’s childhood in Najaf, the 2005 referendum over Iraq’s new constitution, continued military presence, factional politics - and the deadly sectarian war, all of which laid the roots of the conflict and corruption we see, still, today.
