Summary
  • Compares the reasons behind the two Middle East wars during the Bush administrations, drawing on senior-level interviews to argue that the first war was warranted while the second was not, and examines U.S. policy today and what that policy should seek
  • Richard Haass -- a member of the National Security Council staff for the first President Bush and the director of policy planning in the State Department for Bush II -- contrasts the decisions that shaped the conduct of the two Iraq wars and makes a crucial distinction between the 1991 and 2003 conflicts while offering a thoughtful examination of the means and ends of U.S. foreign policy: how it should be made, what it should seek to accomplish, and how it should be pursued
