FPF #300 – Moral Injury guest Peter Van Buren

On FPF #300, Peter Van Buren joins the show to talk his books. Peter discusses his book Hooper’s War and moral injury. Peter explains how war can do more than injure someone physically, their understanding of right and wrong can be damaged as well. 

I ask Peter about his time as a State Department official working on nation-building projects in Iraq, and his book about that time We Meant Well. He gives a few examples of why the nation-building projects failed.

Peter Van Buren is a former State Department employee and is now a writer. He is the author of Hooper’s War and We Meant Well. Peter’s website is WeMeantWell.com.
