Many people have made up their minds on Iraq, but many more still have nagging questions about how we became embroiled in this contest of atrocities that has become our occupation of Iraq. The conflicting positions taken by various factions inside and outside the US have generated confusion and malaise.Here is a chance to get those questions answered by two people that have been very close to the situation for years.www.commondreams./06E253ED.jpg

Scott Ritter was the UN’s top weapons inspector in Iraq between 1991 and 1998. Before working for the UN he served as an officer in the US Marines and as a ballistic missile adviser to General Schwarzkopf in the first Gulf War. He is the author of “Iraq Confidential” ( ), published in October, 2005 by Nation Books. – “The important thing to know about Scott Ritter is that he was right.” – Seymour Hershupload.wikimedia./3034A894.jpg

RAY McGOVERN works with Tell the Word, the publishing arm of the ecumenical Church of the Savior in Washington, DC. He was an analyst with the CIA for 27 years and is now on the Steering Group of Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS).

  • MCM, I hope we’ll see you in Warrington on Saturday evening.


  • Mark, thank you for running this. That’s my husband who commented above. You won’t remember, but he spoke with you back in December to get permission to show A Patriot Act for a non-profit event, which you kindly gave. He’s worked hard on this, and we appreciate your help so much.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
