Hussein Ibish from the American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee was also on the program. The focusof that show was will the US attack Iraq? Today we are going to continue on that theme and take a close look at theBush administration, big oil and Iraq. Dick Cheney has just wrapped up his 11 nation tour of Arab countries as he hastried to drum up support for what the White House calls "action" against Iraq.
