The Institute for Policy Studies held a discussion on how the U.S. could end the war in Iraq and withdraw troops from the region. Among the topics they addressed were promises made about the future of Iraq before and during military operations in Iraq, the state of Iraqi reconstruction, conditions facing troops deployed in Iraq, media coverage of the war, and the need to disengage. Following their remarks they answered questions from the audience.
