the Iraq what?

From Dexter Filkins’s review of Thomas E Ricks’s The Gamble: General David Petraeus and the American Military Adventure in Iraq, 2006-2008.

That an undertaking as momentous and as costly as America’s war in Iraq could vanish so quickly from the forefront of the national consciousness does not speak well of the United States in the early twenty-first century

I’d add that the war as a whole didn’t say much about America’s national consciousness but that’s another story.
