Part of Deep Dish TV's extensive video coverage of the war on Iraq. See also our 12 part series "Shocking and Awful" and our coverage from the final session in Istanbul of "The World Tribunal on Iraq" at deepdishtv.org. Have leaders of the United States committed war crimes in Iraq? The evidence is beyond doubt or question. The verdict is YES. The World Tribunal on Iraq was a global citizens inquiry of conscience that examined the charges of criminality in the U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq. Modeled after the Satre-Bertrand Russell Vietnam War Tribunal, the WTI held 16 sessions around the world and assembled outstanding panels of jurists and witnesses to explore and expose the ugly reality and intentionality of the American destruction of Iraq.
Hearings were held in Genoa, Rome, Barcelona, Seoul, Mumbai, Brussels, Hiroshima, Copenhagen, New York City, with the concluding session in Istanbul, Turkey.
In New York witnesses included Peter Weiss, Ayca Cubukca, Roger Normand, Mike Hoffman, Jenifer Ridah, Dr. Gert Van Moorter, Asil Bali and John Buroughs.
