(Studio: Wolf Blitzer) Live discussion continued with former CIA director James Woolsey†, former counterterrorism ambassador Paul Bremer†, and "The New Yorker" Seymour Hersh† about sending U.N. weapons inspectors back to Iraq and the possible fate of American Taliban fighter John Walker Lindh; CNN/”USA Today”/Gallup poll results on war against Iraq cited. [WOOLSEY – comments on the effectiveness of U.N. weapons inspectors in Iraq; says executing Walker Lindh is reasonable in this case but information he can provide should be considered in the punishment.] [HERSH – says Iraqi President Saddam Hussein is worried; says going after people currently performing terrorist acts, such as Hizballah, makes sense; says Walker Lindh should be evaluated for insanity; states Iran is willing to cooperate somewhat if there is a battle against Iraq.] [BREMER - says many people want Iraq to be the next target; says Walker Lindh could get a plea bargain deal.] [Yesterday, New York Mayor Rudolph GIULIANI†- says the death penalty is appropriate in the Walker Lindh case.]
