Ritter, critic of Iraq-Iran policies, speaks Friday

Scott Ritter, the former UN weapons inspector and a harsh critic of Bush-Cheney policies in Iraq and Iran, who has authored three influential books on the subject, will speak in Milwaukee tonight.

Ritter has warned since last spring that Bush and Cheney are likely to attack Iran during their remaining days in the White House.

This interview with Matt Rothschild, editor of The Progressive, explains why he believes that “we’ve never been at a greater risk of American military action against Iran.”

Ritter speaks at 7 p.m. Friday at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, 3022 W. Wisconsin Ave. The talk is sponsored by Peace Action-Wisconsin. A $10 donation is suggested; student admission is free. Ritter will sign books afterward.

Ritter also will speak Saturday at Fighting Bob Fest at the Sauk County fairgrounds in Baraboo.
