Scott Ritter returned to my KMOX show today to discuss how to stop the Iran war before it starts. He says we're closer to war now than we were a few months ago when we talked, even though there's no evidence that Iran is any closer to being capable of making nuclear weapons.
I asked Ritter, the former UN weapons inspector, why he's calling for Congress to "hold real hearings on Iran," whether outrageous remarks by Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad should be taken seriously, and whether the pro-Israel lobby in the US is pushing the anti-Iran venom.
Many of Ritter's critics don't take the time to pay attention to what he's saying, despite his track record of being right on everything about Iraq. To them, and you, I suggest giving him a good listen.
Ritter's most recent book is "Target Iran: The Truth About the White House's Plans for Regime Change," and here's another good piece he published this week on how to avoid war.
