Listen to the full interview.

Today marks seven years since the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq. In 2005, two years after U.S. and allied forces entered Iraq a U.S. presidential commission said intelligence that Iraq had WMD's was "dead wrong." The report also cast doubts on the integrity of U.S. intelligence on Iran, North Korea, China and Russia. Seven years later, we're taking a look at how the intelligence community responded and asking what changes they've made in the wake of this massive failure.

We hear from Michael Iskoff, investigative correspondent for Newsweek Magazine, who gives us an overview of how faulty intelligence got us into Iraq and whether we can make the same mistakes in Iran.
