Corn on “Hardball”: Iraq, 10 Years Later

Ten years later, Mother Jones‘s DC bureau chief David Corn talks about the mistakes and lies that lead us into Iraq. The war lasted years longer and cost 100 times as much as the Bush administration’s estimates. Corn and Michael Isiokoff, coauthors of Hubris: The Inside Story of Spin, Scandal, and the Selling of the Iraq War, dish on MSNBC’s Hardball with Chris Matthews.
