Last Thursday, the Foreign Affairs Symposium held a panel discussion in Shriver Hall entitled "U.S., Iraq, and the War on Terrorism." The discussion featured three prominent authorities on the issue of Iraq, including a former U.N. weapons inspector and an ambassador to Iraq. The controversial discussion focused on the issue of U.S. foreign policy toward Iraq in light of economic sanctions, Saddam Hussein and the humanitarian crisis in Iraq. Following the lectures, the floor was opened for a panel discussion which quickly escalated into a heated debate between the speakers and members of the audience.
