SCOTT RITTER, author of TARGET IRAN and IRAQ CONFIDENTIAL, was one of UNSCOM’s most senior weapons inspectors in Iraq between 1991 and 1998, after having served for eight years as an intelligence officer in the U.S. Marine Corps. As a Marine, he conducted arms inspections in the former Soviet Union, and provided analysis of Iraq’s missile capacity to General Schwarzkopf in the 1991 Gulf War. Nation Books is the publisher of “Target Iran: The Truth About the White House’s Plans for Regime Change” and “Iraq Confidential.” “The important thing to know about Scott Ritter is that he was right.” - Seymour Hersh

JEFF COHEN, author of CABLE NEWS CONFIDENTIAL, worked for MSNBC as an on-air commentator and senior producer of “Donahue” until the show was terminated on the eve of the Iraq war. He founded Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR), co-hosted CNN’s “Crossfire,” was a weekly panelist on Fox News Channel’s “Newswatch,” and appeared frequently on many national TV and radio programs, including “The Today Show,” “Larry King Live,” “The O’Reilly Factor,” C-SPAN, and NPR. PoliPointPress is the publisher of Cable News Confidential: My Misadventures in Corporate Media.” "Jeff Cohen's dissection of cable TV news is both irresistibly funny and civically painful. It goes from uproarious anecdotes to those that make you wince." - Molly Ivins

U.S. TOUR OF DUTY is a non-profit project that supports and promotes the anti-war advocacy of Iraq veterans, military families, performers, and policy analysts by organizing public forums, developing media strategies, and producing audio/video content.
