SPEECH OUTSIDE WHITE HOUSE – JUNE 16, 2005
BY REG KEYS
I have journeyed here today from England to offer a hand across the water. A hand of friendship and support to form a bond of unity with America, like ours a proud nation.
For as well as great pride in our countries we have deep concern over the conduct of our country’s leaders. Prime Minister Tony Blair and President George W. Bush have both acted dishonorably and brought the integrity of our proud nations into disrepute. Taking us to war on a falsehood.
They have both knowingly mislead Parliament and Congress, our people, and worst of all our brave troops who have put their lives at risk, many returning home in coffins, the result of this unnecessary war with Iraq. We have been thrown into conflicts on the basis of fabricated intelligence reports and deceit over Iraq’s WMD capability.
Our brave troops have had their oath of allegiance betrayed and their patriotism exploited.
I ask you today to hold your President to account as organizations are doing so in Britain with our Prime Minister. These leaders cannot walk through such a catastrophic political blunder with impunity. The Downing Street Minutes is an explosive dossier of deceit by both parties. The leaked classified memo in the Sunday Times May 1, 2005 confirms that the American President was committed to war as early as June, 2002 as stated in his meeting with the Prime Minister, despite contrary claims to Westminster and Congress. Other manipulative intelligence data to justify the war is as follows:
Dick Cheney – “The regime possesses and produces chemical and biological weapons, we also believe nuclear weapons.
