Robert Fisk is skeptical. He is skeptical of the U.S.-led "coalition," saying this is not a war on terror but a strike against America's enemies. He is skeptical of the promises the U.S. and Britain are making to Pakistan and Palestine, saying that false assurances are frequently made in wartime. Fisk is skeptical of the allies the U.S. is using, saying some of them are "killers, crooks, and torturers." We'll hear the arguments of Robert Fisk this hour. Is his a lonely voice of reason? Or should we have more faith in the decisions of the Bush administration?
