Clinton doesn't have 'any faith' in al Maliki
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-New York, doesn't believe Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki will lead the war-torn country into a state of security, the likely presidential candidate told CNN.

In an interview with Senior National Correspondent John Roberts, Clinton said she doesn't 'haven any faith' in the embattled prime minister and questioned his motivations.

"Whether there's a gap between his intentions and his will and capacity is the real problem, or whether he's doing what he intends to do to mark time and further the dominance of his sectarian supporters -- it's hard to tell," Clinton said

Clinton traveled to Iraq and Afghanistan last weekend.

Roberts' full interview with Clinton will air on "This Week at War," 7 p.m. ET Saturday, 1 p.m. ET Sunday.
