PETER EISNER - IRAQ WAR   On this edition of the program, host Carol Castiel and Kaitlynn Espeleta, assistant producer in VOA’s English Division, talk with author and journalist Peter Eisner about his new book The Italian Letter: The Forgery that Started the Iraq War. Eisner meticulously documents how the George W. Bush administration came to falsely allege that Saddam Hussein was seeking uranium from Africa to re-build his nuclear arsenal. Eisner tells VOA that the current chaos in Iraq stems in part from the misguided and mismanaged US-led invasion in 2003.
