“WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Democratic lawmakers voted on Wednesday to subpoena Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to testify about administration justifications for the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003.
On a party-line vote of 21-10, the House of Representatives’ Oversight and Government Reform Committee directed Rice to appear before the panel next month.
Republicans accused Democrats of a “fishing expedition.” But Democrats said they want Rice to explain what she knew about administration’s warnings, later proven false, that Iraq had sought uranium from Niger for nuclear arms.
“There was one person in the White House who had primary responsibility to get the intelligence about Iraq right — and that was Secretary Rice who was then President George W. Bush’s national security adviser,” said committee Chairman Henry Waxman, a California Democrat.
“The American public was misled about the threat posed by Iraq, and this committee is going to do its part to find out why,” Waxman said.”
Perhaps Waxman then could explain his own statements:
“He (Saddam) has systematically violated, over the course of the past 11 years, every significant UN resolution that has demanded that he disarm and destroy his chemical and biological weapons, and any nuclear capacity. This he has refused to do.”
– Rep. Henry Waxman (D, CA), Oct. 10, 2002.
Dolts like Waxman are not worth to wear the title “American”, they are a disease and a pox on our way of life.
