Robert Fisk on the War on Iraq
After living for almost a quarter century in the Middle East, the British journalist Robert Fisk knows the area and the people unlike any other western reporter. He traveled on trains carrying wounded Iranian soldiers during the Iraq/Iran war, he returns to the cancer ward in the Basra hospital to follow up on the fate of the children there, and he is one of the few reporters who interviewed Osama bin Laden.

Robert Fisk is the war and Middle East correspondent for the London-based Independent. His talk on Jenin and Palestine in early 2002 was so well received that peace groups in the Bay Area invited him again. In this talk, recorded in November 2002, he spoke about the hidden reasons of the Bush administration for going to war against Iraq.

Fisk talks about the connections of 9/11 to future wars, about the aftermath of Afghanistan, and about his meeting with Osama bin Laden in 1997. He quotes from a classified British government report on the use of Depleted Uranium in the Gulf War. He also talks about the hidden US plans to replace Saddam Hussein with a puppet government that will pay us back in oil for the cost of war waged on the Iraqi people.
