Here's Senator Edward Kennedy (D-MA) on CSPAN last Friday, March 7, 2003 talking about the serious ethical and financial costs of marching in and taking over Iraq. Of particular interest is a reference to the Kurds and the question to the Repubs regarding whether or not we would support independence of the Kurds or other factions that might try to break free from the larger Iraq during this sequence of events.
Senator John Warner (R-VA) answers him in the next set of clips. (And the answer is "no" we will try to quash all such rebellions to keep the larger Iraq in tact.)
I'm told that the audio got screwed up on these video clips. I'm away from home and can't fix it. Apologies.--lisa
