Re: [casi] BBC radio 4 moral maze

I think you did very well to pick this up Abi.

I heard Sama Haddad say on that program: "sanctions did not kill
people ..."

I have previously complained to the list moderator about having
people on this List and Sama in particular who are obviously
'sanctions denyers'.

What is interesting is how much airtime she and other members of the
IPO get here in the UK. They have no constituency in Iraq and are
only a recent creation. The media thirst for pure anti Saddam Hussein
and they provide it.
