(Studio: Wolf Blitzer) Live discussion continued with Defensecentral.com Host Ken Adelman†, US Air Force retired Maj. Gen. Don Shepperd†, and former Assistant Defense Secretary Lawrence Korb† about whether Iraq should be the next target in the war on terrorism. [KORB - says there is no evidence tying Iraqi President Saddam Hussein to the September 11 attack and that other countries with Al Qaeda cells should be targeted first.] [ADELMAN - explains why America should invade Iraq by Christmas; says Saddam is the biggest threat of any leader in the world; talks about terrorist Mohammed Atta’s meeting with an Iraqi intelligence official prior to September 11.] [SHEPPERD - says an invasion of Iraq would be more complicated than the action in Afghanistan.]
