Iraq: What Lies Ahead
Black Coffee Briefings on the War in Iraq
About This Event

Victory in war has been achieved; victory in peace seems less certain. AEI will conclude its war-time series on Iraq with a look at the mistakes of the past and the challenges for the future. Will the Department of State snatch defeat from the jaws of victory? Will the Security Council hold the Iraqi people hostage in order to assert "international" control? And what about the Iraqi people themselves? How will they recover from the terror of Saddam’s rule and the trauma of war?

Newt Gingrich, AEI senior fellow, will discuss military victory and diplomatic defeat--the imperative to transform the Department of State. Charles Krauthammer, nationally syndicated columnist with the Washington Post, will discuss stepping back and assessing the big picture. Sally Satel, AEI resident fellow, will speak about the psychological impact of the war.

Please join us at 9:00 a.m. on April 22 for analysis of military actions in Iraq, hard-hitting analysis, thoughtful criticism, and free-flowing strong black coffee.
