ATTENTION: DAYBOOK/ASSIGNMENT EDITORS

MIDDLE EAST EXPERT ANDY MARTIN WILL JOIN THE BUSH-BREMER DEBATE OVER BLUNDER OF DISMANTLING IRAQ’S ARMY

MARTIN’S COMMENTARY WILL BREAK THE TIE BETWEEN BUSH ADMINISTRATION LOYALISTS AND PAUL BREMER OVER WHO WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR IRAQ ARMY FIASCO

MARTIN SAYS A BIPARTISAN CONGRESSIONAL INVESTIGATION SHOULD BE LAUNCHED TO EXAMINE “THE PLAN” AND THE RECORD OF WHO SAID WHAT ABOUT THE PLAN TO DISBAND IRAQ’S ARMY

(CHICAGO) Middle East expert Andy Martin will step down from the campaign trail to hold a Chicago news conference Wednesday, September 5th to cast the deciding vote in Tuesday’s New York Times debate between former Iraq viceroy Paul Bremer and anonymous sources in the Bush administration who want to avoid accepting blame for the fiasco of disbanding Iraq’s army.

“Four years later, I am far removed from Saddoun Street, and now on State Street and Main Street, but the siren call of Iraq keeps beckoning me back,” Martin says. “The debate in Tuesday’s New York Times (http://www.nytimes.com/2007/09/04/washington/04bremer.html) over who did what to disband the Iraq army has flared up once again.

“Wednesday I will cast the deciding vote in this critical confrontation and controversy. Bremer feels people are pointing the finger at him; Bush says the finger is unfairly being pointed his way. I was in Baghdad, I had my own military and intelligence sources, and history has vindicated all of my research and analysis from that war.

“My answer may not be simple, but I believe my conclusion will be.”
