National Security Analyst Brian Katulis on the Middle East

Mar 26, 2013

More than 60,000 US troops are still in Afghanistan. What hurdles does the US face as that international military operation winds down? Today on "River to River" National Security Analyst Brian Katulis from the Center for American Progress will talk about US withdraw from Afghanistan.  He'll also comment on the status of Iraq, ten years after the start of the Iraq War.

Also, Todd Gitlin from the Columbia School of Journalism will discuss how the biggest stories from the last decade--including events leading up the Iraq War--were missed, or misreported by the mainstream news media.
