PLEASE Call Your Representative's Office TUESDAY

Help Needed - PLEASE Call Your Representative's Office TUESDAY Re: HRes
375 the Downing Street Minutes

A few months ago, Rep. Barbara Lee introduced a Resolution of Inquiry
[H.Res. 375 Re: the Downing Street Minutes] to investigate Bush
Administration deceit and wrongdoing leading up to the Iraq War. The
After Downing Street Coalition - - is
working with Rep. Lee's office and others to gain Congressional
cosponsors for this Resolution. Unfortunately we are running out of
time. The showdown vote is drawing near. You can help us win! We need
your help. Especially if your Representative is a member of the
International Relations Committee (see list of members below). Please
send this to all your lists, post on blogs and yahoo groups, etc.

Congress reconvenes September 6th and the International Relations
Committee (IR Committee) could vote on the Resolution soon - perhaps
even that day. Please call your Congressmember's D.C. office Tuesday
morning, September 6th and urge him or her to cosponsor the Resolution
of Inquiry. Please note: "support" isn't enough. We need them to
*cosponsor.* Then, keep calling every day - and get friends and family
to call - until there's a vote on the Resolution. Watch for news about
this at the committee website: and see below
for a list of IR Committee members, cosponsors, the text of the
Resolution, the Downing Street documents and more. Use
AfterDowningStreet's Lobby Kit to persuade your Congress Person:

Get your Member's D.C. telephone number here:

Ask for the Legislative Director or the person in charge of Iraq or
foreign policy, express your strong support for the Resolution of
Inquiry (ROI), and request the Representative join the growing number of
cosponsors. If they tell you that the representative will *not* be
cosponsoring H. Res. 375, ask for specific reasons. Ask what it would
take for the Representative to co-sponsor.

If your Representative is a Republican, explain that Rep. Jim Leach from
Iowa - a top-ranking Republican on the International Relations Committee
- is already cosponsoring. If your Representative is a Democrat, explain
that Leach and Tom Lantos, the Ranking Democrat on the International
Relations Committee, are now cosponsoring. Ask: How can a Democrat
refuse to cosponsor when a top Republican is consponsoring?

We need THREE total Republicans on the International Relations Committee
and ALL of the Democrats to cosponsor for H. Res. 375 to pass from the
Committee to the House for a floor vote - see below for members of the
IR Committee. For every Democrat who refuses to cosponsor, we need an
additional Republican.

Even if your Representative is not on the IR Committee, we need them as
cosponsors, *not* just as supporters of the Resolution. If the ROI fails
in committee, we'll need massive cosponsorship in the House.

We also need specific information to follow up on these calls. Find out
if your Representative seems willing or reluctant to cosponsor and then
report back to us at

Current cosponsors:

We can't assume your Congressperson is aware of these materials. If they
need to know more about the Resolution or express uncertainty, ask for a
fax number and / or email address to send copies of the Resolution of
Inquiry and the actual Downing Street Minutes to the Representative or
staffer(s). Fax or email these materials to them. You can get them here:

If your Representative signed Rep. Conyers' letter of 5/5/05 Calling on
the President to Answer Questions Concerning the "secret Downing Street
memo" but hasn't agreed to Cosponsor HRes 375, you should mention that.

Government Insider Says Bush Authorized 911 Attacks
From Thomas Buyea

Keep in mind when reading this, that the man being interviewed is no two-bit internet conspiracy buff.

Stanley Hilton was a senior advisor to Sen Bob Dole (R) and has personally known Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz for decades. This courageous man has risked his professional reputation, and possibly his life, to get this information out to people.

The following is from his latest visit to Alex Jones' radio show.
To hear Alex's interview with Stanley Hilton -

What if:

* The Twin Towers were not hit by commercial airliners?
* The World Trade Center was brought down in a controlled demolition?
* The Pentagon was not hit by a 757?
* Flight 93 was shot down?

Four years after September 11th, the American People are left with more questions than answers. This documentary addresses those questions, as well as providing the evidence necessary to begin answering them. From the phony bin Laden tape to the lack of a 757 at the Pentagon, Loose Change wraps everything up into an hour of solid evidence.
