A couple of questions for your local Labour candidate
Scott Ritter, the former UN weapons inspector and former US Marine, has made a couple of interesting revelations about American foreign policy, according to this report:
Scott Ritter, appearing with journalist Dahr Jamail yesterday [18 February] in Washington State, dropped two shocking bombshells in a talk delivered to a packed house in Olympia’s Capitol Theater. The ex-Marine turned UNSCOM weapons inspector said that George W. Bush has "signed off" on plans to bomb Iran in June 2005, and claimed the U.S. manipulated the results of the recent Jan. 30 elections in Iraq.One assumes Tony Blair is both aware of this policy and unlikely to say "no".
I'd say Ritter's two interesting allegations equal two interesting questions for your local Labour candidate.
