Bombing Afghanistan: Interviews Available

JOHN QUIGLEY, quigley.2@osu.edu,


Professor of international law at Ohio State University, Quigley said today: "We have to ask, 'Will this protect the U.S. from further attacks?'.... Military action should have been done through the Security Council at the United Nations. As it is -- a U.S. and U.K. military action -- it is illegal under international law."

RAHUL MAHAJAN, rahul@tao.ca, http://www.nowarcollective.com,



National board member of Peace Action and a specialist on South and Central Asian affairs, Mahajan said today: "The Taliban have recently shown willingness to negotiate -- just releasing a British journalist and, within the last 24 hours, offering to try bin Laden before an Islamic court. Instead of making a reasonable counteroffer, the Bush and Blair governments started bombing."

LAMIS ANDONI, LamisAndoni@yahoo.com, http://www.meionline.com

An independent journalist and analyst, Andoni has covered the Mideast for over two decades. She said today: "The Arab people are obviously opposed tothe Sept. 11 attacks, but the U.S. is again proving that the only way it deals with the region is coercion, extortion and violence. Once again the U.S. is perpetuating the conditions of injustice in the region, which will feed the extremists."

ANITA WEISS, aweiss@oregon.uoregon.edu

Weiss was in Pakistan on Sept. 11. She is co-editor of "Power and Civil Society in Pakistan" (Oxford University Press, 2001) and professor of international studies at the University of Oregon.

AS'AD ABUKHALIL, abukhali@toto.csustan.edu

Associate professor of political science at California State University at Stanislaus and a fellow at the Center for Middle Eastern Studies at the University of California at Berkeley, AbuKhalil is author of the article "Islam and the Study of Central Asia."

RANIA MASRI, rania@nc.rr.com

A national board member of Peace Action, Masri is at a peace vigil Sunday in North Carolina.

KEVIN DANAHER, http://www.globalexchange.org

Co-founder of Global Exchange and author of "Globalize This," Danaher wrote a recent Washington Post op-ed article titled "Justice, Not War."

BEAU GROSSCUP, bgrosscup@csuchico.edu

Author of the book "The Newest Explosions of Terrorism," Grosscup is a professor of international relations at the California State University in Chico.
