Topics

Last Thursday there was a little covered Congressional hearing on Iraq. For three hours, members of the House International Relations Committee questioned Secretary of State Gen. Colin Powell. Many Democratic Representatives including Cynthia McKinney of Georgia, Barbara Lee of California and Bill Delahunt of Massachusetts raised grave concerns about an U.S. attack on Iraq.

And there was one Republican who opposed the war. That was Congressmember Ron Paul from Texas. Today we will hear his questioning of Powell at the hearing and then talk to him on his views on war with Iraq.

Guest:

  • U.S. Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX)
