ACTION ALERT: Resolution of Inquiry on White House Iraq Group


November 2, 2005
Marcia Martinez / Bellaciao

ep. Dennis J. Kucinich (D-OH) has introduced a Resolution of Inquiry to demand the White House turn over all white papers, minutes, notes, emails or other communications kept by the White House Iraq Group, the little-known agency whose "hyped intelligence" was "critical in selling the Administration’s case for war."

White House Iraq Group (WHIG) Vote on November 9

(October 28, 2005) — Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich (D-OH) has introduced a Resolution of Inquiry to demand the White House turn over all white papers, minutes, notes, emails or other communications kept by the White House Iraq Group (WHIG).

"This group, comprised of the President and Vice President’s top aides, was critical in selling the Administration’s case for war," Kucinich said. "We now know that the Administration hyped intelligence and misled the American public and Congress in their effort to ’sell’ the war."

This Resolution must be voted on in the House International Relations Committee by November 9th, 2005. The same committee, on September 14, came within one vote of passing a Resolution of Inquiry into the Downing Street Memo (H. Res. 375).

That near victory came after a great deal of citizen activism. This time we need to persuade all of the Democrats on the Committee to push a little bit harder and a few more Republicans to do the right thing. Co-Sponsorship of the Resolution by members not on the committee helps this effort.
