Event Description

Tariq Ali has been an outspoken critic of the American occupation of Iraq and the larger U.S. administration agenda for proliferating democracy in the Middle East through an Iraqi beachhead.  Here he reviews themes developed in Bush in Babylon to explain how current U.S. policy in the Middle East may be having precisely the opposite effect than Washington intends.
