An overview of the situation in Iraq by correspondent Martin Smith, who travels "Beyond Baghdad" and focuses on Kurdistan, the Sunni heartlands, and the Shia strongholds Karbala and Najaf. Smith interviews Iraqi clerics, tribal leaders and politicians, as well as Americans, and finds "a number of fault lines, either ethnic or sectarian," that pose a longer-term threat than does resistance to U.S. forces. He concludes that "things are going to get better---but it's going to be a long, hard slog." Smith also surveyed the situation in Iraq in an October 2003 "Frontline" report titled "Truth, War and Consequences."
