Examine the chaos in Iraq, the rise of ISIS and the U.S. role in the conflict.
FRONTLINE examines the chaos in Iraq, the rise of ISIS and the U.S. role in the conflict. Part One revisits FRONTLINE reporting on U.S. missteps in Iraq since 2003, and how, as American troops withdrew, the stage was set for a deadly adversary to rise up.
U.S. troops withdrew from Iraq in 2011, ending America’s military commitment in the country. Now, chaos is once again engulfing Iraq. The team behind “The Torture Question” and “Bush’s War” Part 1 & Part 2 takes a look at how we got here, what went wrong, and what happens next.
