FOIA from Congress, Questions from Media, Poll from Public
There's progress on every front:
Fifty-two Congress Members have filed a Freedom of Information Act request to the White House, the Department of Defense, and the Department of State seeking any and all documents and materials concerning the Downing Street Minutes and the lead up to the Iraq war.
Prime Minister Tony Blair has confirmed the authenticity of the Downing Street Minutes.
A Zogby poll has found that 42 percent of Americans would favor impeachment proceedings if President Bush misled the nation about his reasons for going to war with Iraq. Imagine where that figure will be after the public learns about the Downing Street Minutes!
The United States changed its Iraq policy to begin airstrikes months before the official war.
How can you tell when Bush is lying? His mouth is moving. Read this analysis of last night's speech.
Tell MSNBC What You Think of its Pro-Bush "Town Meeting." Ask them to bring on spokespeople from the AfterDowningStreet.org coalition.
The AfterDowningStreet.org coalition is asking all of its member organizations and individual supporters to host or attend events on the third anniversary of the famous meeting on Downing Street, July 23, 2005.
Our online events system allows you to post an event and have others sign up to attend it. You can edit information about the event after posting it, which means that you can post an event and indicate that some details are "To Be Announced," and come back later to fill them in. And you will be able to communicate with the people who sign up for your event.
