In this sobering study, Nobel Prize winner Joseph E. Stiglitz and Harvard Universitys Linda J. Bilmes reveal a wide range of costs that have been hidden from U.S. taxpayers and left out of the debate about our involvement in Iraq. That involvement, the authors conservatively estimate, will cost us more than $3 trillion.Stiglitz and Bilmes have clearly demonstrated the need for Congress and the administration to ensure that those making sacrifices today will see those sacrifices honored in the future. -Dave W. Gorman, executive director, Disabled American Veterans
