Readings for March 22, 2013: First Gulf War

Hi JS256 Students,

For this week’s section, in addition to our readings I would like you all to read through The Glaspie Transcript that Aileen mentioned in lecture today.  You can find the document here: The Glaspie Transcript .  The transcript contains an interview with American Ambassador April Glaspie and Saddam Hussein just days before Hussein invades Kuwait.

For those of you interested in the Gulf War or media in the Middle East, one of my favorite movies is ‘Live From Baghdad’, which is a fictional rendition of CNN’s coverage of the Gulf War. You can find at trailer here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h1LrX9IgH78 .

Looking forward to section Friday.

Cheers,

Zoe
