The 2013 Annual Kuwait Chair Lecture – U.S. Military Intervention in Iraq: Cost and Consequences


Institute For Middle East Studies

The final convoy of U.S. combat forces withdrew from Iraq in December 2011, but the U.S. military intervention produced transformational effects that continue to reverberate in Iraq and throughout the region. On the 10 year anniversary of the U.S. intervention, Ambassador Gnehm will reflect on the costs and consequences of that action on the U.S., Iraq, specifically, and the Middle East, more broadly.
