Continuing Coverage of a Major News Event
First Place: CNN
“Anderson Cooper 360: Michael Ware 2007 Coverage of Iraq”
Anyway... here is some information on a DC event next month where Michael will be speaking:
The Center for American Progress will host a series of events and produce several analyses in the coming weeks examining the course of the war in Iraq and proposing the next steps for U.S. policy in Iraq. The series will include speeches by prominent policymakers and panel discussions on important aspects of Iraq policy and its effects on U.S. national security. The Center will also release updated analyses examining the current policy in Iraq and providing an alternative direction.
In addition, each day between the fifth anniversary of the start of the military campaign in Iraq on March 19 to President Bush’s “Mission Accomplished” speech on May 1, the Center’s website will highlight a key piece of analysis examining the mistakes made by the Bush administration and its allies in waging the war of choice in Iraq—and the consequences of those mistakes on our overall national security. These analyses will be catalogued on the War in Iraq page of our website, providing a detailed source of information on our nation’s costly march to war in the wrong place at the wrong time five years ago.
