War in Iraq: The American Dilemma

The number of Americans who approve of continuing the American presence in Iraq is rapidly declining. The war has made President Bush unpopular. Pessimism is widespread. Almost half of the American public imagine that victory is not possible. Can American summarily withdraw without undermining whatever gains have been achieved at a great cost of blood and money – or without leaving Iraq embroiled in a bloody civil war – or without turning Shiite Iraq over to Iran? What do we need to do? Rabbi Sherwin Wine presents at the Center for New Thinking.
