Paul Wolfowitz on Iraq 10 years later

Ten years ago today, the United States invaded Iraq and a few short weeks later deposed Saddam Hussein. After a period of popularity, the war became unpopular with the American public and with many in the body politic who had supported it.

Last week, I sat down with AEI fellow Paul Wolfowitz, the deputy secretary of defense at the time of the Iraq invasion, to ask him how he sees things a decade later. It won’t surprise anybody who knows Paul to hear that he remains committed to Iraq, persuaded that America made the right choice in 2003, and thoughtful about lessons learned and unlearned.
