Violence ripped across Iraq on the 10th anniversary of the U.S. invasion and although no group has yet claimed responsibility - although signs point to al Qaeda.
The Iraq war has cost 4,488 American lives, more than 100,000 Iraqi lives, and more than $800 billion.
And on the eve of the anniversary 53 Iraqis were killed and nearly 200 more wounded when 17 car bombs, seven roadside bombs and two shootings ripped through mostly Shiite neighborhoods.
OutFront tonight: In Baghdad tonight, Arwa Damon, who has been covering the war since it began and Retired Gen. Wesley Clark, former NATO Supreme Allied Commander and Seth Jones a security and defense expert with the RAND Corporation.
Arwa Damon is a beast. Sometimes I have to read her Twitter feed just to remind myself how lucky I am to live in a country where the biggest debates are over how much soda to drink, NCAA brackets, and yoga pants.
