ABSTRACT
The article argues that the United States must withdraw from Iraq, but that the government must attempt to save as many of those who cooperated as possible. The violence will get worse when the U. S. withdraws, and the targets will be the translators, government workers, embassy employees, and human rights workers who cooperated with the U. S. Visas, airlifts and greater immigration quotas are required to save at least some Iraqis from choosing between jihadist protection and death squads.
