[ Presenting plain-text part of multi-format email ] Dear All For Yor Information and thanks to Robbie Leppzer Best Regard Ghazwan Al-Mukhtar Baghdad, Iraq ----- Original Message ----- From: Robbie Leppzer Sent: Wednesday, December 04, 2002 7:38 AM Subject: [iac-disc.] New Scott Ritter Video Available Please Forward SCOTT RITTER: "The Case Against The U.S. War on Iraq" Video Now Available A talk by SCOTT RITTER, former U.N. weapons inspector in Iraq and former U.S. Marine, entitled "The Case Against The U.S. War on Iraq" given at Deerfield Academy in Deerfield, MA on October 15, 2002 is now available on video. This 55-minute talk was broadcast nationally on Pacifica Radio's Democracy Now and on Free Speech TV. Scott Ritter is a former United Nations weapons inspector in Iraq (1991 - 1998) and former U.S. marine. Ritter served for eight years as an intelligence officer in the Marine Corps, and served as an arms control inspector in the former Soviet Union and on General Norman Schwarzkopf's staff during the Gulf War before his appointment as a weapons inspector for UNSCOM. As the Chief of the Concealment Investigations Team, for the United Nations Special Commission he oversaw efforts to uncover the true weapons of mass destruction capability of Iraq. He has written about his experiences in Iraq in ENDGAME: Solving the Iraq Problem - Once and For All, published in 1999 by Simon & Schuster. Ritter recently completed a documentary film, IN SHIFTING SANDS: The Truth About UNSCOM and the Disarming of Iraq, which exposes the ramifications of the failure of the U.S. policy of economic sanctions-based containment of Iraq. Ritter begins his talk with a frank, personal description of the grim realities of combat from his own experience as a marine. He presents a comprehensive and detailed overview about the weapons inspection process in Iraq, debunking many of the claims about Iraq's chemical and biological weapons. He ends with an impassioned plea for grassroots citizen activism. This talk is part of VOICES OF DISSENT, a series of full-length video talks produced by Turning Tide Productions featuring distinguished speakers addressing the critical issues of our times in the wake of U.S. plans to launch a war against Iraq and in the aftermath of the September 11 attacks.
