The Road to the Iraq War: The Exile

Slow Burn

Overview

Today, the United States' 2003 invasion of Iraq is widely recognized as a terrible mistake. But at the time, it was widely supported both by well-informed experts and the public at large. Now, a single question rises again and again: what were the architects of the Iraq War thinking?

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 focuses on one pivotal figure in building the case for regime change in Iraq. Through interviews and archive recordings, we will see how Ahmed Chalabi parlayed his elite upbringing and business connections to seek U.S. support for returning him to his homeland.

"Chalabi was an aristocrat, an Iraqi exile who was brilliant and charismatic. He was also a bullshit virtuoso with a core of absolute conviction."
