Downing Street Minutes

I'm sooooo late to this but I joined the Big Brass Alliance, formed to support After Downing Street. The goal: to urge Congress to launch a formal investigation on whether the President committed impeachable offenses with regards to his Iraq war.

Going backwards:

*I just signed John Conyers' petition. He wants 500,000 sigs. You can add yours and pass it on.

*Downing Street Hearing post by John Conyers over at dkos.

*Kennedy has a petition that you can sign.

*From, the push for media attention:
Please call or email the nightly news programs you watch, at:

ABC World News Tonight

Identify yourself as a viewer, then say something like:

"Please investigate and report on the British 'Downing St. Memo' suggesting the Bush administration manipulated intelligence to support its longstanding plans to invade Iraq. We need to know what really happened. Thank you for your time."
It's important to track our impact.

The American media's failure to question the Bush administration led to an unnecessary war. Now the media's failure to cover the war is making it impossible for Americans to unite behind an exit plan. This won't get better until we demand more coverage of the war.
