I want to let


I want to let everyone know that we’re having a discussion of the always vexed question of just how we got into Iraq and why, over at TPMCafe Book Club this week.

The basis of our discussion is George Packer’s new book, The Assassins’ Gate. You may know Packer from his extremely well-regarded New Yorker articles reported from Iraq. George got the discussion started. Foreign Affairs managing editor, Gideon Rose, responded last night. And Todd Gitlin has just weighed in with his first post “The War Movement and the Antiwar Movement“.

Come by and join in the discussion.
