Not the End

By Sen. Edward M. Kennedy

Last Friday was an ominous day for the country, a new low since Watergate in terms of openness and honesty in our government.

The indictment of presidential advisor 'Scooter' Libby is far more than an indictment of one individual. It's an indictment of the lengths to which administration officials were willing to go to cover up their failed intelligence. It's an indictment of their distortions about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction and their serious blunders taking us to war and their vindictive efforts to discredit anyone who challenges their misrepresentations.

As we know, Scooter Libby and Vice President Cheney withheld critical documents in the Senate's investigation of the use and misuse of intelligence and the abuse of power in the decision to go to war and in the management of the war.

These documents must be handed over, because the American people deserve answers:

That is why I'm urging the White House to hand over those documents and asking you to join me in doing so. We need as many Americans as possible to join us in the next few days to show the White House that we are not letting this indictment be the end.

Thousands of Americans came to this weekend and joined me in asking for those documents, let's get 25,000 people to join us today:

The White House has made keeping secrets from the American people a priority, and that has to stop.

The American people know the high cost of this misguided war - 2,000 U.S. soldiers dead, more than 15,000 wounded, hundreds of billions of dollars spent with no end in sight, and a continuing shameful effort by the White House to silence those who try to tell the truth about the war.

We need answers, not cover-ups, by the administration about these serious issues. Thank you for all your support in trying to get the truth.

Join thousands of your fellow Americans and show this is not the end:

Thank you very much for your continued work.


Sen. Edward M. Kennedy

PS: Be sure to ask your friends to join you and ask for answers- we must get as many Americans as we can involved.

Senator Kennedy;
How right you are, this is the begining of the avalanch. I too supported GWB going to Iraq, especially when he stated in his infamous speech about the uranium purchase from Niger. Now I am constatly having to apologize to friends and family for having supported a lie. I am having to say I was missled.

I think it is time the Democratic party members come out and admit they voted in favor of the war because of the lies. There is no shame in admitting we were lied to and that is the reason we supported the war in Iraq.

I cannot understand why the Democrats don't simply say what a previous commentor put so well.

I hear the news commentators consistently repeat, ..."but you voted for the war." I have yet to hear one say they voted for the war because they were LIED to. C'mon. It's such an obvious answer.

"I think it is time the Democratic party members come out and admit they voted in favor of the war because of the lies. There is no shame in admitting we were lied to and that is the reason we supported the war in Iraq."

You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. Nor can you give an illegitimate president credibility. However, Mr. Kenndey it does take some guts while sitting at the banquet table, to wipe the egg off your face and eat that big piece of humble pie. Eating humble pie isn't degrading. But, living a lie is.

I have advised all those Democrats who voted to give Bush authority to go to war and who are soliciting financial support for their campaigns..that I will not support them anymore as long as they do not "PUBLICLY REGRET THEIR VOTE BECAUSE THEY WERE MISLED BY THE ADMINISTRATION WHO MANIPULATED THE INTELLIGENCE TO SELL CONGRESS AND THE PUBLIC ON THE NEED TO GO TO WAR".


As long as our representatives persist in the pretense that the government has OUR best interests at heart, they will continue to believe the kind of transparent lies that lead to things like Vietnam and the current war in Iraq.

Senator Ted Kennedy:

Your brother, John was a great example of what a conservative Democrat used to be.
Since the Left has taken over the Democrat party, I had to leave it. I am now a Republican and consider myself as a John F. Kennedy conservative.

Your continual attacks on others to cover-up your sinful deeds are pathetic and your incessant drunken ramblings are more proof of the damage you are doing to America.

So, there is no statute of limitations on murder…then why are you not turning yourself in for killing Mary Jo Kopechne?
Ted, you are a disgrace to your brother’s name and to this great country.

Being the biggest Communist-Socialist-Democrat in America... You have sunken to an all time low, even for you.

May God have mercy on your soul.

So who are you really....Karl

Why are we ignoring the 15 thousand wounded young men from this war?

we list and give homage to the ones who die, but what about the ones whose life is smashed, along with their body. Many of them will carry this war with them the rest of their life.

Why don't we hear their stories? Why?
