June 2005 downloads

Download of the month: Aaron Glantz discusses his new book How America Lost Iraq
Aaron Glantz is a Pacifica radio journalist who has spent much of the last two years in Iraq. His book is not primarily about the military situation there, but the changing attitudes and material needs of ordinary Iraqis. I would strongly recommend that people download and listen to at least one of these two interviews he's given in the past month:
