Ask All You Like About 9/11 - But For Heaven's Sake Don't Ask Why

A talk by Dr. Robert Fisk,
Foreign Correspondent for the (London) _Independent_

(Recorded by Martin Voelker, also available on video, in preparation. Will be streamed via MIT's Technology & Culture website. http://web.mit.edu/tac/www/recentforums.html
This segment features the first hour of his talk at MIT from Feb. 5th; I edited out a segment referring to a slide presentation he showed with dying Iraqi children.)

Dr. Fisk offers a critical examination of September 11th as America debates war with Iraq; as well as the response of American journalism to Middle Eastern issues in the wake of the September 11th attacks.

In his years as a journalist, Dr. Fisk has covered the Iranian revolution, the Iran-Iraq war, the Persian Gulf war, and the conflict in Algeria. He is a seven-time winner of the British International Journalist of the Year award, a two-time winner of the Amnesty International UK Press Award, and a winner of the John Hopkins SIAS- CIBA Prize for International Journalism. Mr. Fisk received a Ph.D in Political Science from Trinity College, Dublin in 1985 Dr. Fisk is also the author of three books: The Point of No Return: The Strike Which Broke the British in Ulster (1975), In Time of War: Ireland, Ulster, and the Price of Neutrality (1982, 1983), and Pity the Nation: Lebanon at War (1990, 1992). Most recently Fisk contributed a chapter to Iraq Under Siege: the Deadly Impact of Sanctions and War (2000).
