Expose the WHIG


Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich (D-OH) has introduced a Resolution of Inquiry to demand the White House turn over all white papers, minutes, notes, emails or other communications kept by the White House Iraq Group (WHIG).

"This group, comprised of the President and Vice President's top aides, was critical in selling the Administration's case for war," Kucinich said. "We now know that the Administration hyped intelligence and misled the American public and Congress in their effort to 'sell' the war."

This Resolution must be voted on in the House International Relations Committee by November 9th, 2005. The same committee, on September 14, came within one vote of passing a Resolution of Inquiry into the Downing Street Memo (H. Res. 375).

That near victory came after a great deal of citizen activism. This time we need to persuade all of the Democrats on the Committee to push a little bit harder and a few more Republicans to do the right thing. Co-Sponsorship of the Resolution by members not on the committee helps this effort.

More Information and How to Get Involved:


The day is coming very soon when the 2,000th U.S. soldier will have died in Iraq. (As of Monday night, the total was 1,997.) After Downing Street supports United for Peace and Justice, American Friends Service Committee, Gold Star Families for Peace, Military Families Speak Out, CODEPINK, and Global Exchange in calling for actions on that day.

These events will be at 7 p.m. local time the day after the 2,000th death is announced:

These events will be at 6:30 p.m. local time the day after the 2,000th death is announced, unless the announcement is after 3 p.m. ET, in which case it will be two days after:

If there's no event near you, we encourage you to organize one.

Not one more US service member or Iraqi should have to give their lives before our government finally admits that the war against Iraq was wrong and it's time to bring our troops home now.
