From Joan Claybrook, President of Public Citizen

The indictment of a top Bush administration official shines a bright light on the moral bankruptcy and hypocrisy of this White House. President Bush’s cronies went to unprecedented lengths to twist the truth about the reasons for invading Iraq and then violated the public trust simply to punish a respected public servant who dared to expose the sham. These arrogant officials thought they could smear their opponents and leave no fingerprints. Fortunately for the country, they have been caught. This ethically deprived administration has sunk into a morass of its own lies.

Joan Claybrook, President of Public Citizen

It’s time for Bush administration officials to be held personally responsible for their shameful deceptions. Even as the grand jury investigation continues, Congress should put aside partisanship and immediately launch hearings into not only the cynical outing of an undercover CIA agent by officials at the highest levels of government but also into the lies against the American people that took us to war. Please contact your Member of Congress and demand hearings. Use the form below, it's easy, it's fast, but most of all, it's important.
