Oklahoma Voices:
Three Views of the Situation in Iraq (Dec 14, 2008)

On the next Oklahoma Voices, we take a look at the ongoing US occupation of Iraq from several perspectives. First, University of Oklahoma Middle East History Professor Joshua Landis speaks with Oklahoma native and US Army Major Joel Rayburn, who was assigned earlier this year to the staff of the multinational forces in Baghdad. Then Oklahoma Gazette reporter Ben Fenwick (pictured above) discusses his experience serving as an embedded journalist in Iraq with the Oklahoma National Guardís 45th Infantry Brigade. We end with a conversation between Prof. Landis and Colonel Patrick Lang, a retired, senior military intelligence officer and former member of the Green Berets. Heís a specialist on the Middle East and a vocal critic of the war in Iraq.
