Which one is it, guys?

The U.S. Ambassador to Iraq, Zalmay Khalilzad, seems to be quite worried about things erupting in Iraq (source). Donald Rumsfeld, on the other hand, asserts that all is under control.

Mr Khalilzad suggested the situation was so dangerous that without a substantial US presence, a civil war could suck in other Arab countries on the side of the Sunnis and Iran on the side of the Shias, creating conditions for a regional conflict and disrupting global oil supplies. "That would make Taliban Afghanistan look like child's play," he said.

Hmm. I'm stumped. Who do you think we should believe?
