10 Years After Start of War, Is Iraq Better Off?

Ten years later, what does the Iraq War look like? What did we get for all that blood and treasure spent? Nearly 180,000 people killed and nearly $2 trillion spent.

Rajiv Chandrasekaran spent time there during the war as Baghdad bureau chief for "The Washington Post." He later wrote the critically acclaimed book "Imperial Life in the Emerald City: Inside Iraq's Green Zone" about the Americans' botched attempts to restore order after the overthrow of Saddam Hussein.

He joined Madeleine via satellite from Washington, D.C.
