About this series

As he launched the U.S. invasion of Iraq on March 19, 2003, President George W. Bush laid out America’s goals: “to disarm Iraq, to free its people, and to defend the world from grave danger.” More than seven years later, whether the mission has finally been accomplished is far less clear. In this series, Stars and Stripes looks at the costs of the war through the eyes of Iraqis and Americans and asks: What difference did we really make?
