Today's the Day!
That Ritter and McGovern come to Philly. If you live in the Philadelphia area or within a few hours drive, be there! I'mplanning on asking if they have any ideas on Israel and Lebanon, too.
Many people have made up their minds on Iraq, but many more still have nagging questions about how we became embroiled in this contest of atrocities that has become our occupation of Iraq. The conflicting positions taken by various factions inside and outside the US have generated confusion and malaise.
Here is a chance to get those questions answered by two people that have been very close to the situation for years.
Scott Ritter was the UNâ€™s top weapons inspector in Iraq between 1991 and 1998. Before working for the UN he served as an officer in the US Marines and as a ballistic missile adviser to General Schwarzkopf in the first Gulf War. He is the author of â€œIraq Confidentialâ€ (www.iraqconfidential.com ), published in October, 2005 by Nation Books. - â€œThe important thing to know about Scott Ritter is that he was right.â€ - Seymour Hersh
RAY McGOVERN works with Tell the Word, the publishing arm of the ecumenical Church of the Savior in Washington, DC. He was an analyst with the CIA for 27 years and is now on the Steering Group of Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS).
