Episode Summary

Examining the New Iraq Policy
In January of 2007 President Bush announced what he and the administration have called a new direction in U.S. policy for Iraq. The president has called this a strategy that will help the Iraqis achieve the objective of a country that can govern, sustain, and defend itself. The White House has said this is a broad and multi-faceted strategy that will have military, economic, and political fronts.Leading Brookings experts representing a broad spectrum of disciplines examine the implications of President Bush's new foreign policy initiative. Specifically, they review the details of the Iraq strategy, assess if it will work or should be modified, determine how to best measure success or failure, explore what would be the consequences of that failure, and consider alternative options.Participants in the first public discussion include Sarah Binder, senior fellow, Governance Studies; Philip H. Gordon, senior fellow; Martin S. Indyk, senior fellow and director, Saban Center for Middle East Policy; and Kenneth M. Pollack, senior fellow and director of research, Saban Center for Middle East Policy. Carlos Pascual, vice president and director of Foreign Policy Studies, moderates the panel.moreless
