Tenth Anniversary: Was the Iraq War a Mistake?

Ad Feedback

Ten years have passed since the start of the Iraq War. Although popular at the start, looking back, most Americans say it was a mistake.

A recent CNN poll shows 59 percent believe it was "dumb" to send U.S. troops into Iraq. That's up eight points from the pullout in December 2011.

While 38 percent say it was a smart decision, only a quarter of those surveyed say the war was a victory for America.

Sr. Washington Correspondent Paul Strand was CBN News's embedded reporter during the invasion of Iraq. He offered his insight on the wisdom of invading the Muslim nation, on CBN Newswatch, March 20.
