Rick interviews Peter Van Buren about his time working on a Provincial Reconstruction Team in Iraq, and how nothing in his 20 years as a Foreign Service Officer with the U.S. State Department prepared him for the bizarre range of misconceived projects his government was funding there. It's all in his new book "We Meant Well: How I helped Lose the Battle for the Hearts and Minds of the Iraqi People."
