for every US soldier

This Memorial Day, fight to bring honour to all who died defending and protecting our great nation and everything it means to be an American; to bring honour of those serving us right now and every single one who fought for us, throughout our history. Bob Fertik at asks that we Demand a Probe of Bush's Iraq War Lies.

On May 1, the Times of London finally exposed the truth. It came in the form of the minutes of a secret war council led by Tony Blair at the Prime Minister's office on Downing Street on July 23, 2002 - eight full months before Bush invaded Iraq. The head of British intelligence reported on his trip to Washington:

"Military action was now seen as inevitable. Bush wanted to remove Saddam, through military action, justified by the conjunction of terrorism and WMD. But the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy."

Read it carefully: Bush was determined to invade Iraq, and he was prepared to tell whatever lies he needed to tell to scare Americans into war.

This "smoking gun" caused a firestorm in the British media. Here in the U.S., the media barely reported it. Why? Because our media enthusiastically helped Bush tell his lies. And they want to make sure Americans never learn the truth.

Today, and a powerful coalition of progressive allies set out to break the media's silence and tell Americans the truth.

For those who have given everything for our country, even their very precious lives, we owe them the truth. And we owe them the commitment and the diligence to make sure that everything they fought for, the very integrity of our nation remains our first and best cause. If we do not do our part, if we cannot pledge to keep our nation a beacon of light and hope, of truth and integrity; if we cannot bear to face our own shortcomings and vow to repair them, then we do the ultimate dishonour to each and every one of them.
