The Foreign relations platform : a critique / produced by WBAI news.
PRA Archive #: 
IZ0321.02
Description: 

Panel discussion which levels criticism at the denial and limited historical perspective in the 1992 Clinton-Democratic Party platform. It overlooks the end of the Cold War with its "peace dividend" as well as the environmental dangers we face. The Democrates harken back to Truman, even though his administration occurred 40 years ago. The panel goes on to discuss Bush's financial scandals: BCCI, Iran-Contra. The program concludes with Colonel H. Sommers, editor of Vietnam Magazine, discussing the MIA myth. The Federal government, he argues, wants the POW-MIA issue as an excuse to refuse aid to Vietnam.|THE FOREIGN RELATIONS PLATFORM : A CRITIQUE / produced by WBAI news. - SERIES: Behind the News : Democratic National Convention report, 1992| no. 2 - Panel discussion which levels criticism at the denial and limited historical perspective in the 1992 Clinton-Democratic Party platform.
