Iraq ‘Biggest disaster in American history’

15 May, 2015

Albright says during a Woodrow Wilson Center event in Washington, D.C.:

I have believed that Iraq is the biggest disaster in American history. It has ruined America’s reputation or damaged it … What it did was militarize democracy and make it very hard, and I think it has put us in a very bad position in the Middle East … I think that going into Iraq – God knows why – has kind of disturbed all of it, and we haven’t put it back together, and I think it’s going to need an awful lot of thinking from scholars and practitioners doing stuff together.
