Independent American Delegation to Baghdad An independent American delegation, led by Representative Nick Rahall and former Senator James Abourezk, is scheduled to arrive in Baghdad on Friday night (Sept. 13). Rahall is one of the very few members of Congress to visit Iraq since 1991. Rahall, of West Virginia, is currently serving his 13th term in the U.S. House of Representatives. Abourezk represented South Dakota in the United States Senate. The delegation also includes: James Jennings, president of Conscience International, an Atlanta-based humanitarian aid and human rights organization; and Norman Solomon, executive director of the Institute for Public Accuracy, a nationwide consortium of public policy researchers. The trip, described by participants as a "humanitarian mission," comes as President Bush is seeking formal authorization from Congress to launch a large-scale military attack on Iraq. __________________________________ For further information, contact: Institute for Public Accuracy 915 National Press Building, Washington, D.C. 20045 (202) 347-0020 * http://www.accuracy.org * email@example.com _________________________________________________________________ Send and receive Hotmail on your mobile device: http://mobile.msn.com _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
