Big Majority Say Iraq War Not Worth the Cost

A new Wall Street Journal/NBC News/Annenberg survey found "a plurality of Americans - 49% -- say Washington does not have any responsibility to assist the Iraqi government fend off the insurgent groups seeking its overthrow, a split from the you-break-it, you-own-it rule coined in the runup to the 2003 Iraq war -- even though it is not actually the retailer's policy."

"While 44% of those polled said the U.S. does have a responsibility to help in Iraq, 71% said the 11-year conflict was not worth it, a figure 12 percentage points higher than in December 2012, a year after President Obama announced the final American combat troops had left Iraq."
