Kucinich: Show Us The Evidence, Mr. President
Kucinich Leads 30 Members of Congress In Introducing A Resolution of Inquiry To Force Administration To Turn Over Intelligence On Iraq's Weapons Of Mass Destruction
Press Release -

WASHINGTON - June 5 - Congressman Dennis J. Kucinich (D-OH), today, led 30 Members of Congress in introducing a Resolution of Inquiry in the House of Representatives to force the Administration to turn over the intelligence to back its yet unproven claims that Iraq has weapons of mass destruction.

"It is long past time that the President and this Administration show its evidence," stated Kucinich, the leader of the opposition to the war in Iraq in the House. "Today, we are introducing a Resolution of Inquiry to compel the White House to substantiate its claims. The President led the nation to war, and spent at least $63 billion on that war, on the basis of these unfounded assertions."

The resolution, introduced today by 30 Members of Congress, led by Kucinich, seeks to force the Administration to turn over the intelligence to substantiate claims by the President, Vice President, Secretary of Defense, and the White House Press Secretary that Iraq has chemical and biological weapons and therefore posed a threat to the United States.


This is wonderful news. However Rep Kusinich has been so effectively marginalized by the Right and the lap dog media, that because this effort is spearheaded by him, it will be dismissed and never see the light of day.

But I for one and grateful to Rep Kusinich and the other members of Congress who are standing up and demmanding accountability from this administration.
