A Letter to Pelosi
Ms. Nancy Pelosi
House Democratic Leader
I'm not writing to you as a constituent residing within your district of CA-8, but rather I am addressing you in your capacity as the House Democratic Leader.
Like you I am quite concerned over the many acts that the current administration has accomplished and is attempting. The concern I address with you today is the war in Iraq and the tactics employed by this administration to take this country into war with Iraq.
Whether one believes the revelations brought to light by the Downing Street Memo(s) or not, it appears that removing all doubt, of these revelations, is the utmost farseeing direction this country can take.
Representative John Conyers' letters dated May 5, 2005 and June 15, 2005 requested George Bush respond to the revelations brought to light by the Downing Street Memo(s). To date a response has not been received. You cosigned John Conyers' letter(s).
It has been reported that Intelligence Officers have been coerced to comply with certain policies this administration desired which would lead to a war with Iraq. Also, the names of Intelligence Officers have been leaked to the press. As reported all these actions taken by high administration officials.
A I write the nation is witnessing yet another administration no response tactic. George Bush will not answer the poignant questions of grieving family members whose loved ones perished fighting this war and occupation.
Representative Barbara Lee has introduced a Resolution of Inquiry, H.Res 375, requesting that the administration provide certain communications between the U.S and U.K. regarding war plans with Iraq. To date, a meager, 52 (or 53) Representatives have cosponsored this Bill. One of the cosponsors being a Republican–James A. Leach (IA-2).
To date you have not signed on to this Resolution.
I am compelled to provide you with an excerpt of a letter I wrote to some local Colorado newspapers (initially submitted August 4th and 12th, 2005):
This inquiry is necessary to determine if crimes have been committed.
To date 44 cosponsors have signed onto Representative Lee’s Resolution of Inquiry. A glaring deficiency of the cosponsors–from a Colorado stand point–is a lack of Colorado Representatives who have not signed onto this Resolution.
The U.S. Constitution is not a partisan document. It does not divide us into Republicans and Democrats. Our Constitution is an American document for the People. If Congress will not impose our system of Checks and Balances and appropriately use their Separation of Powers to effect an understanding and resolution of these issues We the People should require no less and demand resolution.
We the People have been witness to too many leadership abuses recently. I urge all Colorado Representatives to sign and or support this Resolution.
As of today none of the Colorado, Democratic, Representatives have signed onto Barbara Lee's Resolution of Inquiry.
I cannot further state the gravity of our country's situation. My concerns lie with the future of this country. What an iniquity it would be for current and future generations of the world to no longer have the values this country has so proudly claimed and enshrined.
I urge your support in advancing this Resolution of Inquiry, H.Res 375.
