An on the ground State Dept. view of our 10 years in Iraq, the global stage we created and now must face. A change from the stale perspective of generals and politicians who believe we “won” or did our best and can leave with our head held high.
And here's the saddest truth of all…. we still don't get it. In case you want to jump to the punch line, though, it's this: by invading Iraq, the US did more to destabilize the Middle East than we could possibly have imagined at the time. And we - and so many others - will pay the price…. for a long, long time.
