This interview discusses the neoconservatives in the Bush administration who beat the drums for the U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq. The video was originally posted on Youtube by the interviewee, peace activist Dr. Dahlia Wasfi. Snowshoefilms conducted the interview and videography. The introduction was read by Joshua Casteel, a young peace activist who passed away in 2012.

Wasfi was a speaker at the Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW) 'Winter Soldier' eyewitness testimony, March 2008, in Maryland. Wasfi is the daughter of a Jewish mother and an Iraqi father.

As a child in New York City, and for five years in Basrah, Iraq, U.S.-born Dahlia Wasfi looks at the world from a unique perspective. Her Mother and father met at medical school in Washington D.C. Wasfi's father was from Basrah. After getting his medical degree, the young Wasfi family returned to Basrah for five years, meeting the terms of her father's scholarship, before finally returning to the U.S. to live.
