Auburn Ill. (PRWEB) July 8, 2005
The Downing Street Memo which was published in The London Times on May 1, 2005, gives us an insight into how the propaganda and policy was settled on in what we believe was a deliberate attempt by the U.S and British governments to mislead America and Britain into the war in Iraq.
It supports the assertions of many that the war was merely a manipulation and deception carried out for the benefit of those planning it at the expense of American lives and our constitution. It also brings forth many questions regarding the rationale behind the war in Iraq which must now be answered to account for the many lives lost and forever changed by it.
Patriots for Al Gore therefore calls upon a Resolution of Inquiry to be drafted by the U.S House of Representatives to seek justice for the following crimes committed against the American people, and violations of the U.S. Constitution by the Bush administration as a result of this information coming to light:
1. War crimes in violation of the Geneva Conventions.
2. Abuse of the power of the offices they obtained by less than Democratic methods, as outlined in our constitution.
3. Betrayal of the trust and good faith of the American people, with lies that led to the deaths of thousands of innocent civilians and the deaths of our own troops in the thousands. They must also take accountability for the thousands who have lost limbs, livelihoods, and hope.
4. Torture and human rights abuses committed against prisoners in Abu Ghraib, Iraq, Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and in prisons in Afghanistan. These abuses are in violation of international law, as also outlined in the current report of Amnesty International. These abuses have resulted in the precipitation of more violence and terrorist activity, thus placing our people and troops here and abroad in more danger.
Until this Resolution of Inquiry is granted to seek accountability for these abuses, we will never know the truth behind this war, and the souls of those lost will never be at peace.
Political party matters not in this cause. We stand beside all Americans regardless of Party to demand that the crimes committed against the American people, the Iraqi people, and the usurpations committed against our constitution be thoroughly investigated, and justice for those crimes be levied against all guilty parties as outlined in our constitution and our laws.
We will not regain our soul as a nation unless we join together as American citizens to do what must be done to ensure that justice is served in this matter. Our people deserve nothing less, and our Founding Fathers would expect nothing less from us. We then expect nothing less from those in the U.S House of Representatives who took oaths to protect and defend the constitution of the United States of America.
