Off With Their...WHIG...
By Steve Cobble
Congressman Dennis Kucinich wants to look under Bush's WHIG, and see what's festering there.
The WHIG is the White House Iraq Group, the secret group that was quietly formed in 2002 in order to sell the war to the American people--whether they wanted it or not, whether it was legal or not, whether the facts about WMDs were there or not.
Rep. Kucinich has introduced H. Res. 505, a Resolution of Inquiry demanding "all documents from 2003 pertaining to the taskforce organized by Andrew Card, consisting of Karl Rove, Karen Hughes, Mary Matalin, Nicholas E. Calio, James R. Wilkinson, Condoleezza Rice, Stephen Hadley and I. Lewis Libby, known as the White House Iraq Group."
Quite a lineup.
In September, we tried to pass Rep. Barbara Lee's Resolution of Inquiry, concerning the Downing Street Minutes. With a sustained grassroots effort, we managed to convince every Democrat on the House International Relations Committee to support Lee's ROI, and even won over one Republican to our side and got another to just vote "present". Unfortunately, the Republicans have an advantage starting out in this (and all) committees, so we lost by the slim margin of only one vote.
We're ready to try again. Join us.
We want to see what's hidden under Bush's WHIG.
