Dr. Arnot moderated a forum titled "If They Don’t Report, You Can’t Decide: Untold Stories of Success from Operation Iraq Freedom". The speakers accused the media in general of focusing only on the violence and negative events in Iraq, while ignoring the progress and successes. Panelists, some of whom had traveled to Iraq, argued that most Iraqis were better off than they had been under Saddam Hussein and were grateful for the American presence. They also stressed positive news, such as the reopening of schools, universities, and hospitals. Panelists also responded to questions from the moderator and the audience. close
