James Fallows - Should the U.S. go to War with Iran?

Complete program at: Atlantic Monthly National Correspondent James Fallows discusses the possibility of a preemptive invasion of Iran by the United States. ----- James Fallows presents "Blind Into Baghdad: America's War in Iraq." In the autumn of 2002, Atlantic Monthly national correspondent James Fallows wrote an article predicting many of the problems America would face if it invaded Iraq. After events confirmed many of his predictions, Fallows went on to write some of the most acclaimed, award-winning journalism on the planning and execution of the war, much of which has been assigned as required reading within the US military. In "Blind Into Baghdad," Fallows takes us from the planning of the war through the struggles of reconstruction. With unparalleled access and incisive analysis, he shows us how many of the difficulties were anticipated by experts whom the administration ignored. Fallows examines how the war in Iraq undercut the larger "war on terror" and why Iraq still had no army two years after the invasion. In a sobering conclusion, he interviews soldiers, spies, and diplomats to imagine how a war in Iran might play out. This is an important and essential book to understand where and how the war went wrong, and what it means for America. - Cody's Books James Fallows has worked for "The Atlantic Monthly" for more than twenty years. His previous books include "Breaking the News: How the Media Undermine American Democracy," "Looking at the Sun, More Like Us" and "National Defense," which won the American Book Award for non-fiction.
