Iraq: Eyewitness to War

Program #KELK001. Recorded in Boulder, CO on July 21, 2003.

US diplomacy has evolved into, "You do what we say, or else." Gung-ho machismo is the order of the day. Bush intones, "Bring 'em on." And "There will be no retreat." The president announces that by invading and occupying Iraq the world is safer. Can anyone believe this? Sure. If you only watch corporate TV news! Why didn't the US allow UN weapons inspectors to do their job? It's now apparent why the Bush Administration was in such a hurry to attack Iraq. Virtually none of its lurid pre-war allegations have traction. What did Iraq have to do with September 11th or Al Qaeda? Scud missiles? Uranium purchases? Mobile weapons labs? Nada. Nothing.
