Free Event

The Middle East Policy Forum and the Leadership, Ethics, and Practice Initiative at the Elliott School of International Affairs will host this conversation about Pulitzer Prize-winning author Steve Coll’s new book, The Achilles Trap:  Saddam Hussein, the C.I.A., and the Origins of America's Invasion of Iraq.  Coll has written the definitive story of the decades-long relationship between the United States and Saddam Hussein.  It is a deeply researched and news-breaking investigation into how human error, cultural miscommunication, and hubris led to one of the costliest geopolitical conflicts of our time.

Coll will discuss his new book with Professor of International Affairs Christopher Kojm, who also directs the Leadership, Ethics and Practice Initiative.
