Endgame: Solving the Iraq Crisis
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Date: April 1999
Duration: 3 hours 8 minutes
Ritter describes in detail the ways that Saddam tried to foil inspectors by concealing his weapons programs. He brings listeners with him inside some of Iraq's most carefully guarded sites and shows us dramatic faceoffs between U.N. inspectors and hostile Iraqi guards and officials. But Ritter criticizes the U.S. for squandering an international consensus on Iraq and trying to use the inspections process for uniquely American goals. He offers a way out of the Iraqi morass, proposing a bold and innovative solution to the crisis.
