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.  Other videos in the series include Noam Chomsky (author of 9-11 and MANUFACTURING 
CONSENT):  "The World After September 11" and Howard Zinn (author of A PEOPLE'S HISTORY OF THE 
UNITED STATES):  "U.S. Foreign Policy, Terrorism, and Global Security."

    New videos of more recent talks by Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Dr. Helen Caldicott and Amy 
Goodman will be available after December 15.
