Dear MoveOn member,
A year ago today, the Bush Administration was making its final push toward war in Iraq. We know now that much of what we were told about the threat that Iraq posed was untrue. And rather than own up to their distortion of the facts, Bush administration officials are denying they ever said such things.
But this Sunday, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld got caught blatantly contradicting his past statements, and we have the video clip. You can check it out at:
Congress' responsibility is to hold President Bush and his administration accountable for this pattern of deception -- that's why we have the Constitution. But instead, Congress today will debate a resolution congratulating Bush, for (they claim) making the world safer.
We must demand, at a minimum, that Congress censure the President. It's our Representatives' duty to formally reprimand him for misleading us. And we've got to demand it today, while they're debating their anniversary resolution.
Please call your Representative now, at:
Congressman Bernard Sanders
DC Phone: 202-225-4115
Make it clear that you are a constituent, then let the staffers know you expect nothing less than Censure.
Our campaign will be stronger if you let us know you're calling, at:
Today, we're holding a press conference at the Capitol, unveiling a new TV ad calling for Censure, and a New York Times ad on the same theme.
And we're taking our Censure petition, signed by more than half a million of us, to Congress, hand-delivering it to each Representative's office. The event is co-sponsored by Win Without War, True Majority, and Working Assets.
Please help reinforce this powerful message with a single phone call now.
Then, why not pass the Rumsfeld clip along to your friends?
Thanks for all you do.
- Carrie, Joan, Noah, Peter, and Wes
