The new Chair of the Government Reform Subcommittee on National Security calls for new hearings in Iraq
In an interview with Truthdig, Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio), the next potential chair of the Government Reform Subcommittee on National Security, Emerging Threats, and International Relations, calls for new hearings on how the U.S. ended up in Iraq. The congressman said this is not about how a congressmember voted on the Iraq issue based on "old information," but a reexamination of the information as we now know it, and how information was distorted to foster a war effort.
In the interview with Truthdig's Kucinich said of Bush's dismissal this week of his Secretary of Defence Donald Rumsfeld: "Rumsfeld may no longer be secretary of defense, but he made decisions
based on lies that took people to their deaths. He has to be held
accountable—secretary or not. And the rest of the people who were
involved with the decision-making process have to be held accountable."
