Cassandra's Curse, Pandora's Box: The Lessons and Legacy of Iraq
Cassandra's Curse, Pandora's Box: The Lessons and Legacy of Iraq      Ambassador Barbara Bodine is the Robert Wilhelm Fellow at the Center for International Studies’ Persian Gulf Initiative at MIT. Ms. Bodine’s work focuses on post-conflict political reconstruction, governance and reform, the relationship between security demands and legitimacy requirements, and the regional and global implications of US policy and the political dynamics in the region. Prior to joining MIT, Ambassador Bodine’s 30-year Foreign Service career with the Department of State in Washington and overseas was spent primarily on Middle East and Persian Gulf/Arabian Peninsula, including Ambassador to Yemen from 1997 through August 2001. Prior to Yemen, she served as Deputy Chief of Mission in Baghdad during the Iran-Iraq War and Kuwait during the invasion and occupation of that country by Iraq. In 2003, Ambassador Bodine was the senior Department of State official and the first coalition coordinator for post-conflict reconstruction for Baghdad and the central provinces of Iraq. She is the recipient of number of awards, including the Secretary’s Award for Valor.
