Almost 7 years after the start of the U.S.-led war in Iraq, the international community still struggles to help the 2 million refugees and almost 3 million internally displaced persons who have not been able to return home. Under the U.S. Refugee Admission Program, 19,000 Iraqis were offered sanctuary and resettled -- in 2009 alone. Yet, critics allege that these refugees have not been afforded decent opportunities in their new home — and that resettling thousands may be just a drop in the bucket. This show addresses the post-invasion situation, humanitarian progress and the U.S. future in Iraq.
