Iraq: the Galloway-Hitchens debate
A debate on the invasion of Iraq in 2003

Motion: The Iraq war of 2003 was just and necessary.

Journalist Christopher Hitchens takes on MP George Galloway in a ferocious encounter over the rights and wrongs of the Iraq War. Hitchens thinks deposing Saddam Hussein was a noble act. Galloway retorts that an illegal occupation will only create more Jihadist terrorism.

Recorded earlier this week in New York City, Radio 4 presents the highlights of their two-hour-long “grapple in the big apple.” Combative, impassioned and informative. This is a clash not to miss.
