In the suburbs of Washington and all around the country today, there's a small army of civilian and military experts and soldiers who did their time in Iraq and are now back, brooding, ashamed and angry.

They are angry about how badly wrong their mission went, about how they might have done it better, but mostly about how virtually all their best ideas and direst warnings were steadfastly ignored by the handful of men who led them.

This hour On Point: In a new documentary "No End in Sight," those men and women look back in anger, and if you think you've heard it all, you haven't.

Guests:

Charles Ferguson, Director and Producer of "No End in Sight: The American Occupation of Iraq" (winner of the Sundance Film Festival special jury prize for documentary);
Drew Erdmann, former Director for Iran, Iraq and Strategic Planning at the National Security Council, former Coalition Provisional Authority Senior Advisor to the Iraqi Ministry of Higher Education.

This program aired on July 30, 2007.
