Creating people's geographies
The long and the short, all most worthwhile. Former UN Weapons Inspector Scott Ritter and Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Seymour Hersh draw on their expertise and experience to offer important insights and cut through the cant and disinformation on Iran.
While lengthy, the ninety minute C-Span 2 video is great to run and listen to in the background if doing other work — highly recommended. Listen particularly at the 35 minute, 1 hr:04 min, and 1 hr:10 min mark on the C-Span video (third video below). What Ritter says at the 1 hr:04 minute mark (just after the one hour mark in Question Time) is, I’ll wager, one of the most important things you’ll hear.
In the blogosphere, also check out Homeyra’s and the Fanonite’s recent entries on this important topic, both bringing attention to Ritter’s urgent work on Iran. The Fanonite has also added a few reservations about Hersh’s reliance on anonymous sources in his post reviewing Hersh’s recent New Yorker article on US-Saudi-Israeli designs for the Middle East.
