Panel discussion on Iraq on tap at Hampshire College.

President Bush’s plan for an escalation of American troops in Iraq will be the subject of a panel discussion at Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts on Wednesday night. Hampshire professor Michael Klare will be one of the panelists, all of whom teach international security affairs at the Five Colleges. Klare told WFCR’s Tina Antolini that the panel is intended to air a range of ideas about the repercussions of the President’s strategy, and possible alternatives to it. Klare says this sort of discussion is crucial at what he thinks is a dire point in America’s involvement with Iraq.
