Transcript of Will Pitt's Iraq book: the Ritter interview
Edited on Fri Nov-11-05 09:19 AM by WilliamPitt
WilliamPitt here. Link to the thread with the transcript:

AntiFascist: Something caught my attention and bears highlighting:

PITT: You think Israel is the pivot here?

RITTER: No. Leave Israel out of it. Israel isn't driving this. I'm saying that these are neo-conservatives with a very pro-Israel slant. Some of Israel's worst enemies are pro-Israeli Americans. I view Donald Rumsfeld and Paul Wolfowitz as among the worst enemies of Israel today. I consider myself very pro-Israel, and if you care about Israel, this policy of a unilateral strike against Iraq is the worst thing possible. It destabilizes the Middle East even further, and puts Israel more at risk. It's just bad policy.

Yeah, that struck me, too. - Will
