Kucinich: Show Us The Evidence, Mr. President

When I watched the Aaron Brown interview with Dennis Kucinich I was impressed with the way he came across. My dad was also watching, which gave me an impression of what an older, former republican, might think of Kucinich. The issue was the resolution of inquiry and Brown asked something to the effect of...
Some say that Saddam Hussein himself was a WMD.
Kucinich nodded as if he had heard that argument before, and Brown continued..if so, would you consider it to be a just war?
Dennis bluntly responded with.."Well...we haven't found him either!"
My dad loved it!
“It is long past time that the President and this Administration show its evidence,” stated Kucinich, the leader of the opposition to the war in Iraq in the House. “Today, we are introducing a Resolution of Inquiry to compel the White House to substantiate its claims. The President led the nation to war, and spent at least $63 billion on that war, on the basis of these unfounded assertions.”

Kucinich Leads 30 Members of Congress In Introducing A Resolution of Inquiry To Force Administration To Turn Over Intelligence On Iraq’s Weapons Of Mass Destruction

The resolution is a privileged resolution and must be voted on in Committee within 14 legislative days. Kucinich used the same procedure in March to force the Administration to release the 12,000 page weapon report that Iraq has submitted to the United Nations.

“This Administration owes an explanation to this Congress and to the American people,” continued Kucinich. “Now is the time for truth telling.”

Joining Kucinich on the Resolution are Reps. S. Brown, J. Carson, Conyers, Cummings, Farr, Frank, Grijalva, Hinchey, Honda, Jackson-Lee, Jackson Jr., Tubbs Jones, Kaptur, Lee, J. Lewis, Maloney, McDermott, George Miller, Nadler, Owens, Rahall, Schakowsky, Serrano, Scott, Stark, Van Hollen, Waters, Watson, and Woosley.
