Stop Funding War - Start Investigations – Take Action! [Message from Progressive Democrats of America]
A Majority of Americans Want the U.S. Out of Iraq and Officials Held Accountable for Their Actions

The peace movement has been right since before the war began, and should be listened to now about how to end this war and prevent future ones. The peace movement includes the majority of Americans, who have told pollsters they oppose the war and who voted accordingly on Nov. 7, 2006. We have two main requests, and we have majority opinion and an active movement behind them:

* No More Funding for This War
* Investigate the Case Made for This War and the Way It's Been Conducted

We urge every member of the House and Senate to pursue these investigations in order to restore the rule of law and a system of checks and balances to our government. We believe we will best be able to move forward and avoid the same mistakes in the future if we complete a thorough public review of the conduct of the executive branch during the course of this war and the lead-up to it. Adopting an inside/outside strategy, activists should meet with their Congressional Representatives while others should rally outside their offices.

The Bush administration is not just beating a dead horse in Iraq -- it's betting all our tax money on it.

Jimmy Carter Speaks A Simple Truth About Palestinian Apartheid
By Chris Hedges, The Nation
There's nothing outrageous or bigoted about Jimmy Carter's book arguing that Palestinians are victims of apartheid, as critics are claiming. If anything, Carter mutes his case.
