Call for Hearings On WMD Documents Used to Justify Iraq War

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on October 31, 2005

Press release: “Congressman Jerrold Nadler today demanded the House Judiciary Committee investigate whether White House officials deliberately deceived Congress in order to obtain its authorization of the war in Iraq. In a letter to Committee Chairman F. James Sensenbrenner, Jr. calling for hearings [text of which accompanies this link], Congressman Nadler cited new evidence from the investigation led by Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald, as well as evidence compiled from media reports, that the Bush Administration knowingly marketed the war with fictitious evidence. It was originally expected that Fitzgerald would issue a final report, detailing all of his findings…Now that he has declined to do so…there is even greater need for hearings that will air the facts in a public forum.”
