andlt;Bandgt;WHAT SHOULD WE DO ABOUT IRAQ?andlt;/Bandgt; andlt;BRandgt; Scott Ritter spent seven years in Iraq as an arms inspector for the United Nations. His 1998 resignation as the U.N.'s chief weapons inspector there made front-page headlines around the world. In andlt;Iandgt;Endgame,andlt;/Iandgt; Ritter draws on his experiences to take us inside Saddam Hussein's Iraq and to explain where U.S. policy in Iraq went wrong. andlt;BRandgt; Ritter describes in detail the ways that Saddam tried to foil inspectors by concealing his weapons programs. He brings readers with him inside some of Iraq's most carefully guarded sites and shows us dramatic face-offs between U.N. inspectors and hostile Iraqi guards and officials. But Ritter criticizes the U.S. for squandering an international consensus on Iraq and trying to use the inspections process for uniquely American goals. He argues strongly against the proposed American military strike against Iraq, suggesting instead a bold and innovative solution to the long-standing crisis.

Synopsis:

Scott Ritter became a cause celebre after he resigned in protest over UN and US policy relating to the arms inspection process in Iraq. In this analysis, he exposes the duplicity of UN and US government officials as they appeased Saddam Hussein, and reveals a bold new approach to ending the crisis.

Synopsis:

As the United States heads toward confrontation with Iraq, former U.N. Chief Weapons Inspector Scott Ritter updates his book about his experiences in Iraq to explain why he believes Saddam Hussein does not pose a threat to the U.S. and why we should not invade Iraq.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [241-242) and index.
