Scott Ritter gave an international press tele-conference at Traprock Peace Center on
July 9th. He fielded questions from local reporters (NPR affiliate/WFCR's Bob
Paquette and Diane Broncaccio of the Greenfield Recorder.) and others
participating through a conference call/speaker phone. Calling
in were Kimiko Aoki, Japanese Public Broadcasting; Andrew Stelzer, KBOO ,
Portland, OR; Adrian Glamorgan, journalist from Australia; Mike Zmolek,
National Network to End the War Against Iraq in D.C; Michael Rivaro,
WhatReallyHappened.org in Hawaii; and we had a question forwarded by Judith
Monachina, The Advocate, Lenox and North Adams, MA. See http://traprockpeace.org
Ritter
put together the weapons inspection team's procedures after the Gulf War and
led many of the inspections himself. (Richard Butler, in Australia, is quoted
as saying that Scott was right after all.)
This
interview makes available historic detail and extensive commentary based on
first -hand experience with Iraqis, intelligence services world-wide, and with
duplicitous US policies.
"It's
President Bush that's killing Americans; he put them in harm's war...We're
waging an illegal war of aggression." He warned that the US is slipping
from oligarchy (alas, not from democracy) to fascism.
Why
now?  The US and UK have found no
weapons of mass destruction, because there aren't any. Ritter's been saying
this all along. A year before Gulf War II started, March and April (2002), he
said during speaking events that the US was going to war no matter what, that
there were no WMD's left, and that the US would get hopelessly bogged down with
thousands of US military and Iraqi civilian deaths (on top of the 1.5 million
Iraqi's who died due to sanctions, he reminds his audiences.)
See  http://traprockpeace.org/rittercampaign.html for more information on
Traprock's work with Scott Ritter.  
Traprock arranged and accompanied him on tours to Boston, Baltimore,
Indianapolis, Chicago and Wichita, with large speaking events, website coverage
and 4 editorial board interviews (Globe, Sun, Tribune and our own Greenfield
Recorder.). In his new edition to Endgame, he credited Traprock with taking his
message to the nation last summer.
This
week, he announced a forthcoming book "Frontier Justice: Weapons of Mass
Destruction and the Bush Whacking of America."
Thank
you.

Bush Is Now A terrorist Under U.S. Law (english)
15 Jul 2003
USC Title 18, Section 2331, (a new category) - "domestic terrorism" - has been created and means activities that:

"involve acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State; appear to be intended to intimidate or coerce a civilian population, to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion, or to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping, and occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States."

Bush KNOWINGLY lied about Saddam's WMD to intimidate and coerce the public and congress to get his oil war in Iraq. Bush is, by definition of his own Patriot Act, a terrorist.

Mr. Bush, the country awaits your impeachment and free trip to Guantanamo.
