The Invasion of Iraq

Episode Info

Recounting the invasion of Iraq---and how, says "Frontline" executive producer Michael Sullivan, it "laid the seeds" for "the very messy peace" that followed. The report examines the battle over troop levels in the Pentagon prior to the war, and how the decision to go with fewer troops---combined with shortcomings in U.S. intelligence---affected the outcome. The U.S. "had enough troops to win the war," says Sullivan, "but not enough to win the peace."
