Tuesday, August 31, 2010, marked the formal end of the U.S. combat mission in Iraq, which will begin transitioning to a more advisory supporting role. However, there are still a number of lingering questions of what will happen next. As a result, The George Washington University's Homeland Security Policy Institute (HSPI) puts "Iraq in Focus" by posing questions to leading foreign policy and counterterrorism experts with domestic and international vantage points. Their collection of strategic insights discusses reflections on the war and the challenges we face ahead. Robert Blitzer of ICF International is an HSPI Senior Fellow and former chief of the Domestic Terrorism/Counterterrorism Planning Section, Federal Bureau of Investigation. His replies to the questions posed can be found in the document.
