The President's speech to the City Club of Cleveland appeared to demonstrate a new tact - using emotional stories to make the case for the war. He spent more than twenty minutes detailing the challenges of life in the town of Tal Afar, a city he says is about the size of Akron and lies near the Syrian border. He spoke of booby-trapped bodies of children, for instance, and other children forced to hold down the legs people being decapitated by insurgents. Just after the speech, ideastream's Dan Moulthrop spoke with Amos Guiora of Case Western Reserve's Institute for Global Security, and Dr. David Cohen of the University of Akron's Bliss Institute of Applied Politics about Bush's message.
