This was an incredibly successful town hall, sponsored by Congresswoman Barbara Lee. I want to thank Robert Klein for blogging with me today, theater tech Stephan Shelley for his help allowing us to set up a wifi network here, David Swanson and Jon Schwartz from afterdowningstreet.org, and Miguel Bustos from Congresswoman Lee's office for including us in this crtical gathering.
We were supposed to be out of here by 12:30 p.m. but the town hall kept going. A line of about two dozen people were in line waiting to ask a question at the audience mic. The event kept going to 1 p.m. but I had to exit.
You might also want to read John Bonifaz's memo to Congressman Conyers on the need for the resolution, showing how the Downing Street Memo is justification for a Congressional investigation into whether or not the President of the United States has been actively engaged in a conspiracy to deceive and mislead the United States Congress and the American people about the basis for going to war against Iraq: http://www.afterdowningstreet.org/?q=node/5
