Endgame: The Impact of Economic Sanctions on Iraq

TUE, MAR 4, 2003 (1:27:26)

Scott Ritter discusses his new documentary, Endgame: Closing the File on Iraq's Weapons of Mass Destruction, about the death of more than 1.2 million Iraqis due to United Nations economic sanctions. The film shows the effects that sanctions are having on the Iraqi people while presenting a hard line on issues of international justice and global security. Ritter's powerful interviews with world leaders such as Kofi Annan, secretary general of the United Nations, Tariq Aziz, vice-prime minister of Iraq and Vladamir Putin, acting president and minister of Russia, give an eye-opening view of America and the ramifications of the US foreign policy from the international community's perspective.
