Was The Iraq War ‘Worth The Price’ Paid?
Iraq WarJust days after the departure of American troops, sectarian tensions – long held at bay – begin to escalate in Iraq. A series of coordinated attacks across Baghdad today have left 60 people dead – and 200 more injured. With the political climate in such rapid decline, can we really claim the war was worth the price paid? And, how can the US and the international community at large assist Iraq through its recovery and reconstruction? Do we have a moral imperative to stay engaged?

Guests:
  Nicholas Burns, professor of the practice of diplomacy and international politics at the John F. Kennedy School of Government, former U.S. Under Secretary of State
  Linda Bilmes, senior lecturer in Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School. She is featured in the documentary about the war, No End In Sight
  Michael O'Hanlon, director of research and a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, where he specializes in national security and defense policy. His most recent book is The Wounded Giant: America's Armed Forces in an Age of Austerity
