FROM THIS EPISODE

With US troops now on the ground in Iraq for a period longer than World War II, what do we have to show for their efforts? Guest host Lawrence O'Donnell explores whether Iraq has become any more secure and politically stable.

 

Today's WWLA is a re-cut of this morning's To the Point.

Main Topic At Five Years in, Where Do We Stand in Iraq?
After five years of combat in Iraq, how much progress can the US military report? Some insist this year's troop surge is working, but are we any closer to political stability and security in Iraq? With polls showing a declining public awareness of what's happening in Iraq, will it be a decisive issue in the presidential election?
