(Studio & New York: Charles Gibson) The three options for the US in Iraq listed. The views of "Newsweek International" editor Fareed Zakaria†, retired Army Gen. Jack Keane† & Council on Foreign Relations president Richard Haass about what is next for Iraq presented. [KEANE - assesses the initial US strategy & the need for changes since the current strategy is not working; opposes pulling out now because it will fracture the country.] [ZAKARIA - says we are now dealing with a civil war; states sustainable fire power cannot be done & we are in a civil war being shot at by both sides; comments on a "push & pull" strategy; opposes adding more troops.] [HAASS - says US policy is now the "last hurrah" since the challenges cannot be met; calls strengthening Iraqi national institutions unrealistic; comments on a phased withdrawal.]
