On December 3, 2002, Scott Ritter spoke at Binghamton University.
If you've heard one or more of his other speeches, the content of the
presentation will not be new to you. However, during the question and
answer period he addresses current events, and he fields questions that are
somewhat different. I recommend the "Part 2" mp3 if you've heard
his other speeches. Each mp3 file runs for about an hour.
For what it's worth, his speech in Seattle is his most fiery, and the one at CalTech is a close second. You can access
those speeches and others by clicking

University speech was broadcast by the Unwelcomed
Guests radio program. These are the mp3 files for their
show. "Part 1" has a 3+ minute introduction, including a tribute
Berrigan, and then it
launches into Ritter's presentation. "Part 2" has the
Question/Answer portion starting at roughly the 15 minute point into the file.

P.S.: There's a good deal of discussion about Depleted Uranium (DU)
weapons use. You should check out a recent interview Doug Rocke did on Flashpoints.
Rocke is a combat veteran of Vietnam and Desert Storm, and was the army's main
man for clean-up operations involving DU following the Gulf War. He's now
a whistleblower. Officers (in uniform and not) have approached him, asking
him to shut up. His house has been shot at. He discusses this and
the history of DU weapons, and how thousands of American "Gulf War I"
veterans have died in what he calls the largest case of "friendly
fire" in history. There were only a few American casualties
immediately after "Gulf War I," but now that we get set to strike Iraq
again, it's important to bear in mind that U.S. casualties from that war are
quite significant today. Don't miss the interview. It's an eye
