Hour 1 - Richard Mack
Hour 2 - Beau Grosscup
Grosscup is author of the book "Strategic Terror: The Politics and Ethics of Aerial Bombardment." He is professor of international relations at California State University in Chico.

There was a clear intent to attack -- 'engage' -- the recovery vehicle and personnel. The chatter of U.S. military demonstrates ... excessive attitude of lethal intent; anxiousness to shoot while being under no threat whatsoever; blaming Iraqis for wounded children..."
