The War in Iraq: What We Don’t Know

Between Iraq and Afghanistan, there are 1.6 million U.S. troops (young people) fighting the Bush Administration’s "wars on terror," all subject to PTSD, maiming, and death. Join SALSA for a critical examination of what has happened since the 30,000-troop surge in Iraq just over a year ago with Phyllis Bennis and Farrah Hassen of the Institute for Policy Studies. Their talk will be preceded by a screening of the award-winning news program Democracy Now! hosted by Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzalez.
