What Went Wrong in Iraq?

NPR's Robert Siegel talks with Larry Diamond, a former senior adviser to the now-disbanded Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq and a senior fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, about how early mistakes by the U.S. military helped to create the current problems in Iraq. Diamond, also co-editor of the Journal of Democracy, outlines the Iraq crisis in his article "What Went Wrong in Iraq" in the October 2004 issue of Foreign Affairs magazine.
