"Is Iraq Worth It?"

Retired Marine Lt. Colonel Ralph Peters takes that question head on in his latest column from Baghdad. He is one of the few people in the media writing about Iraq who has military expertise and has spent a great deal of time on the ground. A day earlier, he reported from Fallujah, scene of so many military disasters in the first months of the war.

His conclusion: cautious optimism about out soldiers and their mission, despair about our politicians back in Washington.

Col. Peters just returned from Iraq two days ago, and his first interview since returning will be on 96.9 FM TALK today.
