By Melissa Dalton and Nora Bensahel

Today marks the 10th anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq. In Revitalizing the Partnership: The United States and Iraq A Year After Withdrawal, Senior Fellow Nora Bensahel  and former CNAS Visiting Fellow Melissa Dalton offer a way forward, noting that the United States has strategic interests in a strong, unified and sovereign Iraq. The United States and Iraq, they argue, must maintain a solid partnership to resolve critical geopolitical challenges, including maintaining a unified Iraq, increasing Iraqi oil production and mitigating Iranian influence in the region.
