Summary
Richard Haass--a member of the National Security Council staff for the first President Bush and the director of policy planning in the State Department for Bush II--contrasts the decisions that shaped the conduct of the two Iraq wars and makes a crucial distinction between the 1991 and 2003 conflicts, while offering a thoughtful examination of the means and ends of U.S. foreign policy: how it should be made, what it should seek to accomplish, and how it should be pursued
Summary
Compares the reasons behind the two Middle East wars during the Bush administrations, drawing on senior-level interviews to argue that the first war was warranted while the second was not, and examines U.S. policy today and what that policy should seek
