Seventeen years ago, the U.S.-led a so-called ,coalition of the willing, and invaded Iraq, ostensibly to get rid of Saddam Hussein. That set in motion a multi-year occupation that's still seeing thousands of U.S. troops slated for withdrawal. Iraq is struggling to move on, including a youth-led uprising in October 2019. Guests include, Louisa Loveluck, Baghdad Bureau Chief for the Washington Post; Bessma Momani, Professor of Political Science at the University of Waterloo, and Waleed Nesyif, an Iraqi-Canadian filmmaker and writer. He was a translator and so-called fixer for media during the Iraq War.
