April 2003 was the month of America’s apparent triumph in Iraq. The mechanized blitzkrieg up the Tigris and Euphrates Valleys had come to an end with the fall of Baghdad, and the news media feasted on graphic

imagery of Saddam Hussein’s statue being pulled off its pedestal amid ebullient crowds. Embedded reporters carried the soldiers’ experiences live into living rooms and offices around the world,and public support of embattled soldiers was never greater.The destruction of Saddam Hussein’s supposed caches of hidden weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) seemed imminent, as did the rooting out of terrorist cells he was alleged to have hosted. Survey teams were on the ground in Iraq to pull together accounts and analyses of the great victory—and of the lessons to be learned from it.

For all the euphoria, the triumph had not quite achieved perfection. Outside Kurdistan, coalition soldiers were seldom greeted as liberators, and a highly visible frenzy of looting and lawlessness accompanied the collapse of the Ba’athist regime. Critics who had deplored the paucity of ground forces committed to the initial attacks returned to their theme of insufficiency: if we had won the war, could we keep the peace?
