July 23 “Downing Street Memo

By United for Peace and Justice

Millions of people in the United States still don’t know about the Downing Street Memo, a secret British government document that provides new and compelling evidence that the Bush Administration deceived and misled the U.S. Congress and the American people about the basis for going to war against Iraq. If true, this conduct constitutes a High Crime under the U.S. Constitution and could provide grounds for the impeachment of the president.

We must insist that our Congressional representatives and the U.S. media investigate and report the truth about the Downing Street Memo and hold the Bush administration accountable for its actions.

Saturday, July 23 is the three-year anniversary of the meeting between high-level U.S. and British officials that the Downing Street Memo summarizes. According to the memo, “Military action was now seen as inevitable. Bush wanted to remove Saddam, through military action, justified by the conjunction of terrorism and WMD. But the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy.

Fellow Americans (Not Career Politicians) our country needs us to come together and fight for our country. This is not about who is in office. It does not matter if it is a democrat or a republican. Our government has divide the American people into two groups so they can build hate between us so they can keep our attention from what’s right and wrong. They outlawed discrimination against races but they have created two parties so they can still separate people by hate.
This is a GREAT opportunity for true Americans to take back our government and clean house in the White House (democrat or republican) including congress, senate, and every nook and cranny in Washington.

I do not care who is right or who is wrong it does not matter, but there are huge mushroom clouds over Washington and it is not the terrorist, where there is smoke there is fire. If we as Americans start demanding an investigation on all the evidence that is out there our government would be forced to investigate. This is not about removing Bush from office, but it is about holding our government officials responsible. I do not know about the rest of you but I help pay their salaries and I am not happy with the quality of service that we are receiving. Then once the cleaning is done and the truth is told and the criminals are removed then we can start to rebuild a government that is for the people and not for themselves. America is a great place to live and it can be better. Americans are the majority and they are the minority and we can take back control. I want better healthcare, I want a safer country, I want better education, I want safer boarders, I want to make my own choices, I want better jobs, I want my kids to go to college, I pay taxes and I want a lot for my money. This is a once in a life time opportunity for American people to stand together for the future of this country and the future of our kids. The question to all is what are we going to do about it? Let’s fight for America not a political party. Let’s demand TRUTH, JUSTICE and LIBERTY for all
