Stop the Cover Up -Ted Kennedy takes on the White House
12 Dec 2005
Recent indictments, current investigations and insider reports have intensified the scrutiny of the Bush Administration's conduct that took the nation to war in Iraq. Every day, Americans ask more questions about pre-war intelligence -- and the answers are troubling. We've reached the lowest point since Watergate in terms of the openness, honesty, and credibility of our government.
Incredibly, in the face of this mounting criticism, the White House claims that Congress had access to the same pre-war intelligence the Administration did. That's categorically false. Key documents -- including the relevant Presidential Daily Briefs - were never seen by the Senate and are still being withheld.

More than ever, the American people deserve answers about the war in Iraq. That's why I'm introducing an amendment in the Senate to require the White House release certain relevant PDB's on Iraq to Congress. Join me now and call on the White House to cooperate with the Senate investigation and provide these documents:

This White House has made keeping secrets from the American people a priority, and that has to stop.

The indictment of presidential advisor "Scooter" Libby shows the lengths the Administration is willing to go to cover up the truth. It's an indictment of their distortions about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction, their shameful in leading us into this misguided war and their vindictive efforts to discredit anyone who tries to disclose the truth.

The cover-up has to end. The American people deserve to know the truth about this war America never should have fought.

The high costs of the war -- more than 2,100 U.S. soldiers dead, 15,000 wounded and hundreds of billions of dollars spent -- are only made worse by craven efforts to cover up the truth about the war. Our nation deserves answers -- not more cover-ups -- about how and why we went to war, and why we were so unprepared to win the peace.

The White House is desperately trying to stonewall the truth and block any credible Senate investigation. Join thousands of our fellow Americans, and tell the White House to release the documents and let the Senate do its job:

Together, we intend to hold the White House accountable to the American people. Thank you so much for your continuing support. On to '06!

Sincerely,

Sen. Edward M. Kennedy

P.S. -- This petition will be delivered to the White House tomorrow, so make sure to add your name and tell others today:

It's great that Teddy K. is going after a cover up. It takes a thief to catch one. Teddy had a great quote on the night of July 19, 1968, "eh...Call the police, call my lawyer...eh, on second thought.ehh.. better wait to call the police...ehhh, but call my lawyer.....anymore scotch..ehhh.." I'll sum up Teddy in one word, CHAPPIQUIDDICK ! Instead of attempting to expose cover-ups, Teddy should be taking swimming lessons.
