Inside the Invasion of Iraq

&nbsp
/
&nbsp

In their new book, Cobra Two, Michael Gordon and Bernard Trainor describe the Iraq War as a story of hubris and heroism, of high technology wizardry and cultural ignorance.

They conclude that the bitter insurgency that American and British forces confront today was not pre-ordained, and they recount the military and political opportunities that were lost along the way.

Guests:

Michael Gordon, co-author of Cobra II, the Inside Story of the Invasion and Occupation of Iraq; chief military correspondent for the New York Times

Retired Lt. Gen. Bernard Trainor, co-author Cobra II, the Inside Story of the Invasion and Occupation of Iraq;former director for National Security Program at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government
