Two years after the invasion of Iraq, British MP George Galloway and
journalist Christopher Hitchens will debate the causes and
consequences of the Iraq war at Baruch College in New York City.
Moderated by Amy Goodman.

George Galloway is Respect party MP for Bethnal Green and Bow in East
London. He recently electrified the United States with his appearance
at the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations on May 17, when
he turned the proceedings into a condemnation of the war in Iraq.
CNN's Wolf Blitzer described Galloway's speech in the Senate as "a
blistering attack on U.S. senators rarely heard" in Washington. His
new book, out in September, is "Mr. Galloway Goes to Washington" (The
New Press).

Christopher Hitchens is a widely published polemicist and frequent
radio and TV commentator. He is the author of "A Long Short War," "Why
Orwell Matters," "The Trial of Henry Kissinger," and many other books.
The London Observer calls him "One of the most brilliant journalists
of our time."

This debate is part of a national tour of the United States by George
Galloway, "Stand Up and Be Counted: No to War and Occupation." The
tour will culminate in Washington, DC, during the anti-war protests on
September 24th. For a full list of cities and events, please see the
