This chapter discusses the theme of this book, which provides a comprehensive assessment of the consequences of the Iraq War for the national security of the United States. The book evaluates the overall costs and benefits of the war to U.S. national security, and the degree to which the war has in fact reduced the principal threats and challenges to the United States and its interests. The chapter also explains the justification for conducting this study, which is based on the proposition that the independent evaluation of public policies is vital to the health of representative democracies such as the United States.

Keywords:   Iraq War, national security, United States, cost and benefits, public policies, independent evaluation
