“Iran is clearly one of the strategic winners out of this,” said Woodrow Wilson Center scholar Robin Wright, speaking of the U.S. withdrawal from Iraq on CNN.

Wright told “State of the Union” host Candy Crowley that the U.S. withdrawal from Iraq means that the historic tensions between Arabs and Persians are likely to resurface and that while Iranians will have influence with many of the top leaders in Iraq, “it doesn’t necessarily mean that the Iraqis are going to become the next Iranian province.”
