Washington Post military correspondent Thomas Ricks says the war in Iraq is winnable, but not if something isn’t done to change the way in which we’re fighting. Penguin Press has published Ricks’ new book called Fiasco: The American Military Adventure in Iraq. Ricks’ outlines describes as a string of mistakes made by the U.S. military leadership in the execution of the war. He joined Coy Barefoot on July 28 to talk about the book and what he thinks needs to be done to fix the war.
