This section is followed by a more detailed description and analysis of U.S. policy and a survey of congressional actions on Iraq.

These issue discussions have been written by CRS [Congressional Research Service] experts, and contact information is provided for congressional readers seeking additional information. In this section and elsewhere, text boxes list CRS products that provide in-depth information on the topics under discussion or on related topics. The final section links the reader to additional sources of information on the Iraq crisis."
