Looking Back at Iraq in 2006

In the course of casual research this afternoon I came across two articles that recalled to mind where the Iraq war was 11 years ago. It’s passed out of memory that quickly, except for those who were actually over there at the time. In any case, they make interesting reading.

Patrick J. McDonnell, LA Times, October 23 2006, Into the Abyss of Baghdad.

Christopher Hitchens, for Slate, January 16 2006, It’s curtains for al-Qaida.
