Bush Plan for War Against Iraq Provokes Growing Hostility Toward U.S in Arab World

Interview with Denis Halliday,former United Nations Under-Secretary, conducted by Between The Lines'Scott Harris

United Nations inspectors are at about the midway point in their work of investigating Iraq's capacity for making weapons of mass destruction. The process continues despite pronouncements from the Bush administration that Saddam Hussein's government is in material breach of the resolution, establishing the return of U.N. teams to Iraq. Meanwhile, the Pentagon continues to move war ships, thousands of troops and military equipment to the Persian Gulf region in their preparation for war.

As part of the U.N. inspection framework, Baghdad has delivered a list of more than 500 scientists who have worked on Iraq's chemical, biological and nuclear weapons projects. But in releasing a 12,000-page Iraqi weapons declaration to non-permanent members of the U.N. Security Council, the Bush administration acted to censor the names of 24 U.S. and dozens of European companies that sold Baghdad materials for its weapons programs over the past several decades. Among the companies purportedly on the list, as revealed by a German newspaper, are: Bechtel, Dupont, Eastman Kodak, Hewlett-Packard, Honeywell and Rockwell.

Denis Halliday, former under-secretary general at the United Nations, just returned from a conference in Cairo, Egypt where he witnessed growing hostility in the Arab world toward America's foreign policy in the Middle East. Between The Lines' Scott Harris spoke with Halliday, who led the oil for food program in Iraq before resigning in protest in 1998, about the anger he observed in Egypt and the backlash he fears may be triggered by an American war against Baghdad.
