    Historians studying the 2004 candidates' debates may be struck by the extent to which these campaign events became the kind of bare-knuckled exchanges on Iraq of a type unprecedented in the American public sphere until that point. Sure, the war had been exhaustively debated in the media over the previous two years, but there was a certain politesse to those debates, and any impulse towards combative questioning of administration officials by journalists was always going to be tempered by the industry requirement of maintaining access to the corridors of power. When John Edwards on Tuesday turned to Vice President...

    Wisconsin On Bush & Iraq July 2, 2004 A new poll released Friday says three in five Wisconsin residents think President Bush's performance in handling the situation in Iraq is "poor" to "fair."

    On March 23, 2004, Richard Clarke told BBC News "I am going to make sure the American people have the facts that I don't think they fully had before and they can make the appropriate decision." The question is: what facts does Richard Clarke provide us with, if any? On August 5 2002 Dan Rather on CBS Evening News declared: "Veterans of the Clinton administration say the Bush team didn't take their al-Qaeda warnings and plans seriously enough." Stone Phillips on NBC Nightly News revealed: "There is a new published report tonight that the outgoing Clinton administration gave the Bush...

    BAGHDAD, Iraq, April 4 — A coordinated Shiite militia uprising against the American-led occupation rippled across Iraq on Sunday, reaching into Baghdad and the sprawling Shiite slum of Sadr City on the capital's outskirts and roiling the holy city of Najaf and at least two other cities in southern Iraq. Seven American soldiers were killed in Sadr City, one of the worst single losses for the American forces in any firefight since Baghdad was captured a year ago. An Iraqi health official in Najaf said 24 people had been killed and about 200 wounded in clashes that ensued when armed...

Saudi Arabia to Hold First-Ever Elections The last question asked of Sulaiman Al-Hattlan: Q: “One last question- when the US began this war against Iraq in the spring a lot of writers and analysts were saying this might help generate a kind of wave of democratic freedom throughout the region.

    Former President Bush defends his and son's Iraqi policies STAMFORD, Conn. -- Former President George Bush, accepting an award Monday night for his contributions to world affairs, defended his decision 12 years ago to not remove Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq, an issue now facing his son, the current president. John D. Negroponte, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, presented Bush with the World Affairs Forum's sixth annual Altschul Award, at a ceremony in Stamford. "Iraq is back to business as usual," Negroponte said. "Time is running out for Iraq to peacefully disarm." Bush said the world faces...

    Mar 21 200 THE discovery by an American president that nuclear weapons can be useful is not as new as some shocked people appear to believe. General MacArthur had eventually to be fired because he thought them too potentially useful in the Korean war. Presidents Eisenhower, Kennedy and Nixon were prepared to use them against Cuba or Vietnam or the Arab states. Even the latest rather candid nuclear "doctrine" can be traced directly to an authorisation made by President Clinton in 1996. The message is always the same. Take us seriously: we are in principle prepared to destroy you utterly....
