FORMER U.S. ATTORNEY GENERAL RAMSEY CLARK: SHOULD THE U.S. INVADE IRAQ? Vice President Dick Cheney wrapped up an 11 nation middle east tour today aimed at rallying support for attacks against Iraq. Cheney's final stop was the key nation of Turkey. During his meetings with Turkish officials, the Vice President offered Turkey some $228 million to assume control and command of the international peacekeeping force in Kabul. With Cheney's trip to Turkey, it seems as though the groundwork is being laid for US strikes against Iraq. Turkey is central to any US plans to attack Baghdad-the country would be an important base of operations for such attacks. Meanwhile, as Cheney wrapped up his trip, CIA director George Tenet appeared before a Senate committee where he accused Iraq of having links with Al Qaeda. In the wake of September 11th, the Pentagon dispatched former CIA director James Woolsey to London to investigate Iraq's connection to the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon. Guests: James Woolsey, former director of the CIA (1993-1995). He is currently a partner at the law firm of Shea & Gardner in Washington, D.C. Ramsey Clark, former U.S. Attorney General and founder of the International Action Center. Hussein Ibish, communications director for the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee. _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
