SCOTT RITTER, author of TARGET IRAN and IRAQ CONFIDENTIAL, was one of UNSCOM’s most senior weapons inspectors in Iraq between 1991 and 1998, after having served for eight years as an intelligence officer in the U.S. Marine Corps. As a Marine, he conducted arms inspections in the former Soviet Union, and provided analysis of Iraq’s missile capacity to General Schwarzkopf in the 1991 Gulf War. Nation Books is the publisher of “Target Iran: The Truth About the White House’s Plans for Regime Change” and “Iraq Confidential.” “The important thing to know about Scott Ritter is that he was right.” - Seymour Hersh
RUSH TO WAR, directed by ROBERT TAICHER, is the most comprehensive and authoritative documentary to date of U.S. foreign policy and the consequences of unilateral, preemptive aggression by the world’s only remaining superpower. Interviews with Anthony Zinni, Scott Ritter, Joe Wilson, George McGovern and Howard Zinn provide a deep and thorough understanding of the Bush administration’s “War on Terror.” “Mesmerizing! Riveting! Picks up where ‘Fahrenheit 9/11 leaves off.” - Jeffrey Lyons, NBC-TV More info at www.RushToWar.com.
