...White House. Interview with Ian Williams, author of "United Nations for Beginners," conducted by Between the Lines' Scott Harris
Bush's Pre-Emptive War Doctrine Condemned as Related Scandals Erupt in White House
Interview with Ian Williams, author of "United Nations for Beginners," conducted by Scott Harris
The U.S. corporate media predictably focused much attention on President Bush's poorly received Sept. 23 address at the United Nations while virtually ignoring an important speech delivered by U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan in which he condemned Mr. Bush's pre-emptive war doctrine used to justify America's invasion and occupation of Iraq. The White House doctrine, Annan said, "represents a fundamental challenge to the principles on which, however imperfectly, world peace and stability have rested for the last 58 years."
Back in Washington, the Bush administration is reeling from growing criticism of their conduct in the Iraq war. The Republican-controlled House Intelligence Committee publicly criticized U.S. intelligence agencies' pre-war assessment of Iraq's weapons programs, a primary rationale for the American invasion. This came on the heels of a preliminary report issued by the administration's own chief investigator checking Iraq's weapons programs who found little evidence supporting the White House line that Baghdad presented an imminent threat to the U.S.
Meanwhile, CIA director George Tenet's request for a Justice Department investigation into allegations that White House officials leaked the identity of a covert CIA operative to a conservative columnist has touched off a political firestorm. The leak exposed the identity of the wife of former U.S. Ambassador Joseph Wilson, who had openly refuted President Bush's claim that Saddam Hussein was seeking uranium in Africa with which to make nuclear weapons, a matter the administration had earlier sent him to investigate. Between The Lines' Scott Harris spoke with. Ian Williams, author of the "United Nations for Beginners," who examines U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan's condemnation of President Bush's pre-emptive war doctrine and the unfolding scandals surrounding the White House conduct in the Iraq war.
"United Nations for Beginners," is published by Writers and Readers. Read Ian Williams' articles in the pages of the Nation Magazine or online at www.thenation.com.
