$1000 Reward for Getting Bush to Answer Question


Democrats.com is offering a reward of $1,000 to anyone, professional journalist or citizen activist who gets President Bush to answer a particular question. Click Headline above.

The question is:
"In July 2002, did you or your administration 'fix' the intelligence and facts about non-existent Iraqi WMDs and ties to terrorism -- which were disputed by US intelligence officials -- to sell your decision to invade Iraq to Congress, the American people, and the world - as quoted in the Downing Street Minutes?"

Granted, if we had democratic media in this country, there would be no need to offer money to get someone to ask this question. But have you heard it asked? Democrats.com is even offering a smaller reward if you ask it and Bush does not answer.

Yadda, Yadda, next you folks will be blaming the Downing Street Memo on Karl Rove and joining the ranks of the terrorist bombers,,,,ooops, you're already doing their dirty work for them!
Whine and cheese!

Shame on the US mainstream corporate media. I have cancelled my local newspaper, and Newsweek. (my slogan: don't need a stinkin' Pravda in English). I also do not watch TV news. Fortunately there are enough alternative news sources for me on the Internet. I have also started subscribing to The Economist.

As posed, the question leaves too much wiggle room for Rove to prepare an artful dodge.

I would recommend the following as the main question to be asked Bush on the Downing Street Memo:

Will you resign if the Downing Street Memo leads to a conviction of Tony Blair in the ICC for war crimes?

The benefit of that configuration is that it encompasses the main aspects of the DSM; namely:

1-It was written by a Brit for use in a UK meeting with Blair.
2-The UK is a member of the ICC, the US is not.
3-It is premised on a conviction taking place, thus not allowing for a direct attack on the authenticity or accuracy of the DSM.
