On Oct. 10, 2007, Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich (D-OH) demanded that the Democratic leadership “stand up” to President George W. Bush, with respect to ending the illegal and immoral war in Iraq. He underscored how the Democrats won the election in 2006 by promising the American people that they would end the war if they gained control of the U.S. Congress. Rep. Kucinich, in taking sharp exception to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s views on ending the conflict, said: “You don’t need another vote…another Bill to end this war. There is money available today to bring the troops home…There are men and women [our troops] dying right now [in Iraq]…This was a war based on lies…” He added that a “similar path of lies” are being laid to take the country into a war with Iran. Rep. Kucinich’s remarks were made at a press conference, held on the Cannon Terrace, in Washington, D.C. For background, see:
