Iraqi-Americans give their view of the crisis in Iraq

How do Iraqi-Americans living in the U.S. interpret the dramatic events now unfolding in Iraq? BBC reporter Aleem Maqbool went to the town of Dearborn in Michigan, which is famous for its large Arab population (around half the town describe themselves as Arab-American). He asked Iraqi-Americans there who they think is to blame for the current crisis in Iraq, and what action they think the U.S. should now take.
