Expert Examines Iraq's Sunni Triangle

NPR's Robert Siegel talks with Adeed Dawisha, professor of political science at Miami University, Ohio, about the region in Iraq commonly referred to as the Sunni triangle. Dawisha says the area, which more closely resembles a rectangle, is home to only 2% of the Iraqi population, but roughly two-thirds of all attacks on U.S. troops occur there.
