Publisher's Summary

Peter Van Buren has written a decidedly undiplomatic account of the year he spent as a diplomat in Iraq. His book is titled We Meant Well: How I Helped Lose the Battle for the Hearts and Minds of the Iraqi People. Van Buren describes his project as “career suicide” and indeed some of his former colleagues have skewered the book. Said one, “If you felt that strongly about policies you feel are misguided and harmful, you do the honorable thing and resign before tearing your colleagues apart in public.”

Then, Dan Gediman discusses the essays in the new book, This I Believe: Life Lessons. [Broadcast Date: December 8, 2011]
