CASI's website may be the best single repository of sanctions evidentiary material on the Internet, and I encourage everyone to share this link with their most skeptical contacts. Recent additions to the site include Marc Bossuyt's working paper for the UN Commission on Human Rights (the AP report on which Rania recently circulated), as well as rare-but-indispensible documentation including the Aga Khan's 1991 UN report assessing the humanitarian needs of post-war Iraq, and the UN staff report on no-fly zone airstrikes. In addition to raw UN and NGO data, CASI's Colin Rowat has contributed a number of briefing papers, including a historical overview of UN data (an excellent backgrounder for those in the mainstream media). Also included on the site is "25 Laments for Iraq", the prize winning poem by Robert Minhinnick. Also note that 230-page proceedings from CASI's conference remain available for download (in PDF format, it makes a great companion to the recent book edited by Anthony Arnove). The material below (a small sample of what's available) can be found at <http://www.welcome.to/casi/>, chiefly under the "Info Sources" and "Briefings" links.
