Keeping up the pressure

While Republicans roll out the red carpet for Ahmad Chalabi, Sen. Dick Durbin and Rep. George Miller call for him to be subpoenaed. Rep. Maurice Hinchey introduces a measure that would force the administration to turn over the drafts of two speeches - October 2002 and the 2003 State of the Union - to sort out the disputed uranium claims, which were pulled from the earlier speech at the request of the CIA. And on the Senate floor, Sen. Kennedy reads a catalog of administration lies - in their own words - on Iraq.

In his march to war, President Bush exaggerated the threat to the American people. It was not subtle. It was not nuanced. It was pure, unadulterated fear-mongering, based on a devious strategy to convince the American people that Saddam's ability to provide nuclear weapons to Al Qaeda justified immediate war.

I think we're seeing the beginnings of an opposition party.
