This Sunday, December 7th, over 2,000 MoveOn members are hosting house
parties to screen the new documentary "Uncovered: The Whole Truth about the
Iraq War," and you're invited to attend.
This'll be fun, but it's also really important. Here's a statement from
Ambassador Joe Wilson, the man whose wife's cover as a CIA agent was blown
by the White House. Ambassador Wilson, who served as ambassador to Iraq
before the first Gulf War, also helped to expose the truth behind the
President's famous assertion that Iraq was seeking uranium in Africa.
Here's why he thinks "Uncovered" is such an important movie:
War is a blunt instrument reserved for those instances when other, less
violent actions cannot achieve our national security goals. In the case of
Iraq, as you will see in UNCOVERED, those other actions were working very
well. We did not need to go to war to meet the objectives set forth by the
President and the international community in UN Security Council resolution
1441. Intrusive inspections were working just fine.
Going to war with Iraq has not made us safer. On the contrary, there are
now several hundred million Muslims who hate us. We are now seen by a world
that only two years ago stood by our side, as one of the greatest threats to
international peace. 130,000 Americans are sitting ducks in Iraq, being
picked off one or two a ay, while the Iraqi population becomes more and more
hostile to our occupation. And this war of choice on Iraq has kept us from
finishing the job in Afghanistan against Al Qaeda and the Taliban.
UNCOVERED very effectively deconstructs the case for war with Iraq,
pointing out the lies and flimsy evidence that underpinned the
justification. It is an important work because it goes directly to the
credibility of this administration. You will come away wondering whether
George W. Bush and his team are worthy of our trust or support. I know
where I come down on that question.
Others will benefit from this documentary in reaching their own
