The Northshire Bookstore in Manchester, VT will be hosting America’s former proconsul/ambassador to Iraq in the 14 months following the overthrow Saddam’s regime. He will speaking at 2 pm regarding his new memoir, My Year in Iraq. It should be an interesting talk and I plan on being right there in the thick of it. I hope to hear him speak frankly about the situation in Iraq and expect to hear that things there are a lot worse and a lot better than we thought. We’ll see if I’m right.
