The March to War and Back


It’s been ten years since the USA invaded Iraq, in a war that officially lasted for less than two months. This short, emphatic essay speaks for a generation of journalists and liberal minds who saw themselves turned into post-9/11-hawks, blindly supporting a war when it would have been their job to ask tough questions. Read it, then make sure to have a look at In Focus’ three-part image series on the 10th anniversary of the Iraq War.

From Weekly Filet #105, in August 2014.
