An update on the Iraq war will kick off the Dole Institute of Politics' fall schedule, the institute announced Tuesday.
The discussion, titled "Iraq: What Went Wrong/What's Next?" will feature three experts on the war:
¢ Don Wright, author of "On Point II," the Army's official history of the war in Iraq.
¢ Retired Army Col. Kevin Benson, who planned the Iraqi invasion and provided the Dole Institute's first Iraq update in 2004.
¢ Adrian Lewis, professor of history and KU's Fort Leavenworth liaison.
Dole Institute director Bill Lacy said in a statement that while the fall semester will focus heavily on this year's elections, the institute wanted to begin with an update on Iraq.
The event will be at 5:30 p.m. Sunday at the Dole Institute. There is no charge to attend.
Jonathan Earle, associate director of programing for the institute, said the discussion, which is usually at 7 p.m., was moved up to accommodate an expected larger-than-usual student turnout.
