Hi there,

You trust Democracy Now! to bring you the news stories and global headlines you won't find anywhere else. But did you know that Democracy Now! never accepts money from advertisers, corporate underwriters or governments? This allows us to maintain the editorial independence you rely on—but it also means we need your help. If everyone seeing this gave just $4 a month, it would more than cover our expenses for the entire year—and today a donor will DOUBLE your first month. Please do your part. It takes just a couple of minutes to make sure that Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else. Thank you so much!

Earlier this week, we mentioned that one of the factors said to be influencing any US attack on Iraq might be the scheduling of Parents Day at Stanford, where Chelsea Clinton attends university.

In July 1991, six months after the outbreak of the Gulf War, Laura Flanders talked to an Iraqi student in Baghdad about the effect the war had on her life. Her name is Hajar Muhammed Ghani. At the time of the interview she was 19 years old, and an English Literature student in her last year of high school. Hajar begins by reflecting on the day the bombs began to fall.

Tape:
