What Kucinich is about and a probable way to pursue contacting him is below. I expect that communications between CASI (and/or list members) and Kucinich would be mutually beneficial. Even if he doesn't win the election he is well connected with the Democrats and various government offices, and he could also make use of good information regarding the current Iraqi situation. --------- Begin forwarded message ---------- Date: Sat, 28 Jun 2003 22:58:23 EDT Dear Friends of Peace: CONGRATULATION! WE WON A BATTLE, NOW LET'S GET READY FOR THE WHOLE WAR! The MoveOn primary would not have happened had you not made the right choice. Illinois Dennis Kucinich supporters again thank you! WE ARE IN PROCESS OF ESTABLISHING AN ILLINOIS OFFICE TO ELECT KUCINICH! Please read important message about and from our candidate . . . Congressman Dennis Kucinich, leader of antiwar opposition in the House, continued to challenge the Bush Administration on the lead-up to war in Iraq, issuing a statement today: "Last October, this Congress voted to give the President the authority to use force against Iraq to thwart an imminent threat from Iraq's weapons of mass destruction (WMD)."The Administration urged action against an imminent threat. So Congress voted, only weeks before the 2002 election. Some Democrats voted for it thinking there would be an opportunity to refocus on domestic issues. Instead national security and Iraq's so-called imminent threat became the divisive issue in the election. The question became: who was patriotic and who wasn't. "The Administration capitalized on the fears of Americans. They misrepresented the nature of the Iraqi threat. They misled Congress. They misled the American people. By pushing for a quick vote before the election, they changed the election and manipulated the outcome. "The Resolution of Inquiry will establish the truth once and for all. "Kucinich's Resolution of Inquiry in the House to force the Administration to turn over intelligence to back its claims on Iraq's WMDs, is now signed by 36 Congress members. As a privileged resolution, it must be voted on in Committee within 11 legislative days.
