Two New Yorker writers, Mark Danner and George Packer, discuss the struggle for Iraq's future. Moderated by Professor Frederick Lorenz.

Mark Danner has been a New Yorker contributor since 1990. He is a professor of journalism at the University of California, Berkeley, and the Henry R. Luce Professor of Human Rights, Democracy, and Journalism at Bard College. He has written extensively about U.S. foreign affairs and the war in Iraq for The New Yorker and other publications. His books include The Massacre at El Mozote, The Road to Illegitimacy, and, most recently, Torture and Truth: America, Abu Ghraib, and the War on Terror.

George Packer has been a staff writer at The New Yorker since 2003, and he reports regularly for the magazine on Iraq. Recently, his subjects have included the Iraqi elections and the tensions between religious and secular groups in Basra; the father of a soldier killed in Iraq; and the Bush Administration's "war on terror" strategy. He is the author of The Village of Waiting, Blood of the Liberals, and, most recently, The Assassins' Gate: America in Iraq.

Frederick Lorenz is a lecturer at the Jackson School of International Studies at the University of Washington and an adjunct professor of law at Seattle University School of Law. He specializes in humanitarian law and security in the Middle East. He served for 27 years as a U.S. Marine Corps lawyer, retiring as a colonel in 1998. During his military career, he served as senior legal advisor in field missions in Somalia and Bosnia, and later worked as a civilian legal-affairs officer for the United Nations in Kosovo.
