Oh, to support your "I was hoping the lid could stay on until the Cogressional hearings got started on 'Nigerian/Uraniumgate"
I'm on the email list for MoveOn.org. This is their latest propaganda....
Dear MoveOn member,
Three weeks ago, MoveOn launched a petition asking Congress to create
an independent commission to investigate whether the Bush
Administration manipulated and distorted evidence to take the country
to war in Iraq. Over 190,000 of us joined the effort. Now Congress
is literally taking up our call: Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA) has written
a bill that would create just such a commission, and it's already
co-sponsored by a wide array of moderate Democrats -- including many
who voted for the war.
This commission can really happen -- and the truth about the Bush
Administration's manipulation of evidence can really come out -- but
we'll need your help. We're launching a drive to get every member of
Congress to personally pledge to support and vote for the independent
commission. Please take a moment to ask Congressman Holt
to pledge today at: http://moveon.org/wmdpledge/?id=1504-1785791-_Mi5yk4IaMw7bMw4TO3FdA
If you sign right now, your comment may be among those read on the
House floor by some of the Representatives pushing this resolution.
Reps. Henry Waxman (D-CA), Barbara Lee (D-CA), George Miller (D-CA),
Sherrod Brown (D-OH), Lloyd Doggett (D-TX), Rosa DeLauro (D-CT), and a
number of others are looking forward to hearing what you have to say
and reading some of the messages into the Congressional Record on the
It's hardly a secret that members of the Bush Administration used
misleading and scanty evidence to bolster their case. As US News and
World Report noted in early June, even Colin Powell became alarmed at
the level of intelligence distortion. When he read the first draft of
his speech to the UN -- prepared for Powell by Vice President Richard
Cheney's chief of staff -- he was so upset at the weakness of some of
the evidence that he lost his temper, throwing several pages in the
air and declaring, "I'm not reading this. This is bullshit." (US News
and World Report, 6/9/03, URL below)
Sounds like Terrence J. Wilkerson had been getting around.
