  • Tariq Ali v. Christopher Hitchens: A Debate on the U.S. War on Iraq, the Bush-Kerry Race and the Neo-Conservative Movement

    Alihitchens2

    Nearly a year and a half after the U.S. invaded Iraq, we rejoin Tariq Ali and Christopher Hitchens for part two of a debate on whether the Bush administration should have attacked Iraq. We last spoke to these two former political allies in December, 2003. Today we return to the debate to examine the U.S. presidential race, the predictions of Richard Perle, the status of the Iraqi resistance and why Hitchens supports Paul Wolfowitz. Ali is the author of Bush in Babylon: The Recolonization of Iraq and Hitchens is the author of A Long Short War: The Postponed Liberation of Iraq. [includes rush transcript]
