The Road to the Iraq War: Terror

Slow Burn

Overview

In 2001, just a week after the terrorist attacks of September 11, a new threat swept across America. Barely visible or detectable, anthrax spores sent by mail hospitalized victims throughout the country, setting off a scramble to find and eliminate their source.

Slow Burn is a narrative podcast produced by Slate Magazine that takes an in-depth look at pivotal historical events. In the fifth season, host Noreen Malone examines the run-up to the Iraq War.

This episode examines how the 2001 anthrax attacks reshaped the American landscape. Through interviews with key figures and experts, Malone examines how the attacks helped pave the way for the invasion of Iraq, and what the investigation into them eventually revealed.

"That's the real lesson of the Iraq saga, that if 9/11 was a failure of the imagination, as has been often said, then what happened in the run-up to war was an over-reliance on the imagination."

Randy Larsen, retired US Air Force colonel
