Posted on 11/25/2005 4:55:30 PM PST by Libertarian Jim
Hitchens debates Scott Ritter on the Iraq War - 12/20/2005, 7:00 pm, at the Tarrytown Music Hall, Tarrytown, NY Moderated by Laura Flanders. (Metronorth (Hudson Line) gets one from Grand Central Station to the Tarrytown stop in 40 minutes. From there it's an 8 minute walk up the hill to the Tarrytown Music Hall and Metronorth will have trains returning to Manhattan after the debate)
I am 15 minutes from it by car...anyone interested in a Freep against Ritter the pedophile??
I hope C-Span covers it...it should be a free-for-all.
Not a fair fight. Ritter is pathetic.
Scott is a very disturbed man, and a Traitor
I can't wait to hear the results of this debate. The child abuser Ritter doesn't stand a chance.
He was for WMD's one day and agin' 'em the next. Flip-flopped faster than the Kerryster. Musta had something to do with his Iraqi 'angel', I'll bet'cha -- the one who hired him to do a puff piece.
"Ritter accepted $400,000 in funding two years ago from an Iraqi-American businessman named Shakir al-Khafaji. Ritter used the money to visit Baghdad and film a documentary purporting to tell the true story of the weapons inspections."
Link for the above quote:
I enjoy your threads so much that I'd feel guilty if I didn't try to help when I can.
He was too hot to trot during the runup to the war to convince people the President was wrong about Iraq. I, for one, still think there was WMD's and they were taken to Syria.
His story is indeed a strange one. He came out of the gate looking like a contrarian against the Hans Blix's of the world and then he turned around on a dime. Weird.
Too big a turnaround for my taste; and when he went to Baghdad and made his speech shortly before the war I was even more convinced something was not right. Sure would love to see this debate, Hitchens is much smarter than Ritter and can be every bit as testy when he wants.
On reflection though, I'm not so sure Hitchens should dignify Ritter by treating him as an equal. Ritter is a clown. Hitchens, for all his faults, is a serious man.
Good thing Hitchens doesn't have a daughter. Scott might want to take her to Burger King.
Absolutely right - Ritter is a useless traitor and there's no two ways about it. There was a six month period before the shooting war began giving Saddam and his French, German and Russian collaborators plenty of time to remove as much evidence as possible. They were all trying to buy time, and I am sure W was fully aware of all that. If our satellites weren't fixed on Iraq during that period, then someone in the CIA needs to be in prison for gross criminal negligence. All that said, WMDs have been found in Iraq in great quantities. However, we haven't found any fully assembled ticking A-bombs. I guess that is the only type of WMD that would impress the Lefties now. Bottomline is that the Enemy Within has a moving target of criticism. No matter what is done or not done by Bush, he will be wrong and evil. These people scare me much more than Al-Qaeda because they and the MSM actually do have experience in weakening our country's resolve to survive.
That will happen only if they can drag scottie out of burger king.
