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
day, 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
