''We won't be silent''---Tuesday, January 28, 2005
"I'd like to begin by welcoming Dr. Rice to this committee hearing. It is my hope that today, we will have a candid discussion, Dr. Rice, because I believe it is crucial that a Secretary of State speak openly and honestly with the American people and with Congress. Frankly, this issue of candor is where my concern lies."-from "Opening Statement of Senator Barbara Boxer--Confirmation Hearing of Dr. Condoleezza Rice.: Why did the United States go to war in Iraq based on misleading -- if not false and fraudulent -- evidence? Why did we divert valuable resources and intelligence personnel to Iraq, taking them away from Afghanistan and the pursuit of Osama bin Laden? Why did Dr. Rice mislead the American people into thinking there was a connection between Saddam Hussein and Al Qaida before September 11th?" If you agree that we must hold Condoleezza Rice accountable for her decisions, I urge you to stand with Senator Boxer, myself, and millions of Americans. Sign Senator Boxer's petition here, so she can take your voice with her to the committee room and the floor of the Senate in the pursuit of the truth from Condoleezza Rice.
