George Packer, who has covered the Iraq war for The New Yorker, is a self-described "ambivalently prowar liberal" who had "wanted to see a homicidal dictator removed from power before he committed mass murder again" and who wished for an open society in the Arab world. But, Packer writes, "things went wrong" and he provides vivid descriptions of the haphazard and poorly planned occupation of Iraq. Packer will sign copies of his new book The Assassins' Gate: America in Iraq following his Forum.
