A Civilian in Baghdad; The Logistics of Ending the War

Terry features two guests in this segment.

First, Amitav Ghosh is an Indian writer and anthropologist. Terry talks to him about an essay he wrote in the January issue of the literary magazine Granta called "An Egyptian in Baghdad." One of his friends went to work in Iraq several years ago; that friend was still in Baghdad when the war started. Ghosh felt that much of the press about the war was depersonalized, and wanted to write about the life of one person caught up in the conflict.


Planning the Next Phase of the Gulf War

First, reporter Pat Ford talks with retired Admiral Eugene Carroll, of the Center for Defense Information. They examine latest developments in the Gulf War. He'll speculate on what was discussed at this weekend's meeting between Secretary of Defense Dick Chaney, Chief of Staff Colin Powell, and commanding general Norman Schwarzkopf.

Then, Terry talks with the Science Advisor to King Hussain of Jordan, Doctor Abdullah Toucan. They'll discuss the environmental consequences of the Gulf War in light of Saddam Hussein's threat to destroy oil fields.
