Reflections on the Iraq War

After nearly nine years in Iraq, the United States military is packing up its gear and bringing its troops home.  The U.S. says the war is over, and Iraq is now a stable, sovereign country.  If you ask Iraqis how they feel after almost nine years of occupation, the answer is not so cut and dry.

Arwa Damon and Michael Holmes have been covering the war since the beginning.  John Vause talked with them to help put it all in perspective.
