House Iraq Hearings - Only War Party to Testify

Dear Antiwar Activists,

The House Committee on International Relations is holding hearings this
Thursday on the question of whether we ought to invade Iraq - and only
one side, the pro-war side, is going to be heard.

Here is a list of the witnesses:

Richard Perle - a chicken-hawk of the first order, who has been all over
television and in the op ed pages of the nation's newspapers calling for

R. James Woolsey - who has spent the last several months acting as the
War Party's chief publicist.

Jessica Tuchman Mathews - President of the Carnegie Endowment for
International Peace, a leading proponent of the idea of "coercive
inspections," designed to provoke Iraq into responding militarily and
thus providing a casus belli.

Retired General Charles G. Boyd - Along with Ms. Mathews, an advocate of
the "multitaral" "coercive inspections" approach, and also head of
"Business Executives for National Security" (the "entrepreneurial" wing
of the War Party).
Boyd has said: "I would send them [US troops] in while banging the drums
on the need for more opening to inspectors," Boyd said.

This is a "debate"? How come only one side is being presented? There is
no room, we are told, for advocates of non-intervention. Peace is not an
We want to bring "democracy" to Iraq - but what about Washington, D.C.?

Will America launch a war of conquest with no debate?

It doesn't have to be that way! I urge you to call the office of Rep.
Henry Hyde, Republican chairman of the International Relations
Committee, and urge him to schedule at least one advocate of
non-intervention. Let's have a real discussion before we plunge the
entire Middle East into chaos, sink our economy, and send our sons and
daughters to die - and to kill uncounted Iraqis.

Call Hyde's office now: (202) 225-4561.
Emails won't help, most to Congress get dumped.

Also call the ranking Democrat on the committee, warmonger Tom Lantos
(D-California), and let him know what you think of this farcical
charade: (202) 225-3531

Yours in Peace and Liberty,
Justin Raimondo
