Robert L. Draper, writer at large for the New York Times Magazine and the author of To Start a War: How the Bush Administration took America into Iraq, and Jeffrey A. Engel, the Founding Director of the Center for Presidential History at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas join hosts Dennis McCuistion and Jim Falk this coming Sunday.
The conversation focuses on, Iraq and Afghanistan, and the continued forever wars and “wars of choice” we’ve experienced there. The spirited discussion with our two experts uncovers some surprises you‘ll want to learn more about.
Our guests focus on the back-office strategy that led to our entering the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts and how 9/11 contributed to those decisions. We discuss the costs, blunders, and what should have been done to expedite the best decisions.
According to Brown University’s Cost of War Project, in the two decades since the 9/11 attacks, our blunders have cost more than $6 trillion.
