Hosted by ,

Five years later, the "Arab Spring" is more often called the "Arab Uprising." Instead of producing new democracies, rebellions have led to renewed repression in some places and chaos in others. Nevertheless, it may be too soon to declare "failure."

Later on the proram, as Americans reflect on the casualties in Iraq and Afghanistan, we talk with a former State Department official who spent seven consecutive years in the war zones—and carries the blame for deaths of 31 service members.
