What is Stiglitz's discount rate for calculating the cost of the Iraq war?

His headline figure of trillion is clearly shocking, but I saw that he is including a number of costs, such as the shortfall in productivity of dead and wounded soldiers, and macro-economic impact, that will last for many years, so he must be discounting these costs. Can anyone tell me what discount rate he is using, and how it is calculated? What is the US economy’s cost of capital?
