War Funding Update


By Rep. Dennis Kucinich
http://kucinich.us/node/3597

I have just come from a Democratic Caucus meeting where I raised this issue:

Democrats are pushing President Bush’s benchmarks in the supplemental as milestones which must be reached by a certain time. One of the first milestones or benchmarks involves the privatization of Iraqi oil, in the form of passage of a so-called Hydrocarbon law.

Democrats are now in a position of legitimatizing the very reason why George Bush took the US to war against Iraq. To grab the oil.

Call your Member of Congress now and tell them to not permit the war funding bill to become the vehicle for the privatization of Iraq’s oil.
