America partly to blame for Iraqi sectarian violence says Khalilzad

U.S. ambassador to Iraq Zalmay Khalilzad said that "the U.S.-led invasion in 2003 was partly responsible for the violence engulfing Iraq, creating a 'moral responsibility' for the United States to remain in the country to help solve the Sunni-Shiite bloodletting.
'They need our help,' he said. 'These circumstances have, in part, to do with the fact that we came in here.' "
