September 11 and the Cost of War

The Costs of War project is assessing the total cost of the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan in the wake of the 9-11 attacks. Findings thus far put the cost at more than 300,000 lives and $4 trillion. The project’s findings are continually updated. Catherine Lutz co-directs the Eisenhower Research Project, which produced the Costs of War report.
