To Start a War with Robert Draper (Part 2)

Episode 176

The Biden Administration will be withdrawing all American troops from Afghanistan in the coming months, aiming to close out what has now been 20 years of U.S. military presence in the country. But where does this leave us with Iraq?  In this week’s episode, hosts Elisa and Yvette sit down with author Robert Draper to discuss his new book, To Start a War: How the Bush Administration Took America Into Iraq. Together, the three discuss the book’s central characters, the detailed and complex decision making that brought us into Iraq, and what we’ve learned looking back.
