Dole Institute’s fall schedule to begin with Iraq war update

August 19, 2008


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.
