After a decade of war, the soldiers are home from Iraq and they are coming home from Afghanistan.  But we are left to ponder and debate the important lessons from these wars. Consensus has hardly been reached on the effectiveness of the war-fighting doctrine known as “counterinsurgency.”  

On the 10th anniversary of the start of the Iraq War, America Abroad presents: A Decade At War: Afghanistan, Iraq & Counterinsurgency.  During this program, we will hear from soldiers, local military personnel and military commanders, including General Stanley McChrystal. In addition experts discuss and debate the effectiveness of counterinsurgency and the future of warfare.
