Midmorning: Iraq Study Group and mega-pastor Leith Anderson
Posted at 7:45 AM on December 7, 2006 by Bill Wareham
The Iraq Study Group's new report calls for an immediate diplomatic approach to solving the violence in Iraq. At 9 a.m., Midmorning looks at whether the violence already has resulted in the dividing of a society where Muslims sects used to live together. Kerri Miller's guests are
Chaim Kaufmann, an associate professor of international relations at Lehigh University, and Mishkat al-Moumin, adjunct scholar at the Middle East Institute. She's a former minister of environment in Iraq and lecturer at the University of Baghdad who left Iraq in 2005.
At 10 a.m., Kerri's guest is Leith Anderson, pastor of one of the Twin Cities' megachurches, Woodale Church in Eden Prairie. He's also interim president of the National Evangelical Assocation. Anderson will talk about what the 2006 midterm elections say about evangelicals and politics.
