On Anniversary of 9/11 Attacks, Andrew Bacevich Weighs In On Iraq, Afghanistan And Syria

September 11, 2013

Andrew Bacevich thinks any US military strike in Syria would be misguided. Bacevich is the author of Breach of Trust: How Americans Failed Their Soldiers and Their Country, and a retired US Army officer. Jim Braude and Margery Eagan talked with Bacevich about how a post-9/11 US can effectively use its military — still the biggest in the world by a large margin, still embroiled in Iraq and Afghanistan — to achieve lasting peace.
