12/19/11: Witnessing the Iraq Withdrawal

Local filmmaker Dodge Billingsley was in Iraq when the U.S. first invaded in 2003. He returned there last month to film as the U.S. withdrew combat troops from Al Anbar province. The efficient withdrawal that Billingsley witnessed contrasts starkly with America's bumpy progress subduing and rebuilding Iraq, and he says the country, while safer now than it was eight years ago, still stands on shaky ground. Doug will talk with Billingsley on Monday about the war and how America has altered Iraq.
