Iraq Study Group

In 2006, CSPC co-convened—with CSIS, USIP, and the Baker Institute—the Iraq Study Group in order to discuss policy options for the ongoing War in Iraq.  The study group, co-chaired by former Secretary of State James Baker and Congressman Lee Hamilton, included two CSPC Trustees, Chuck Robb and Ed Meese.  The findings of the report—widely disseminated to Congress, the Bush Administration, and the American public—provided policy options for addressing the crisis confronting U.S. and allied forces as violence in Iraq increased.
