Midmorning: Iraq timelines and the positive side of infection
Posted at 7:56 AM on April 3, 2007 by Bill Wareham
Military experts disagree on whether setting a timeline for withdrawal will have a negative or positive impact on military progress in Iraq. Kerri Miller's guests at 9 a.m. are Gen. Jack Keane, a retired four star general and has served in the Army for more than three decades; and Andrew Bacevich, retired Army colonel and professor of international relations at Boston University. He's the author of The New American Militarism: How Americans Are Seduced by War.
At 10 a.m., a defense of infection. We wash our hands with anti-bacterial soap and we beg our doctors for antibiotics at the first sign of a cold, but one author says bacteria and infection play an important and vital role in our lives. Kerri's guest Gerald Callahan is the author of Infection: The Uninvited Universe. He's an associate professor of Immunology and the Public Understanding of Science at Colorado State University.
