Kucinich to Hold Hearing on War Plans for Iran
Sam Gardiner and David Kay to Testify

Oct 10, 2006

Congressman Kucinich will lead a briefing Wednesday on Iran. Kucinich wants to find out what the Bush Administration plans for Iran, and what actions are already underway.

Testifying will be retired Air Force Colonel Sam Gardiner, author of The End of the Summer of Diplomacy. Gardiner is convinced that the US has been executing military operations inside Iran for at least 18 months. On September 18, Gardiner told CNN's Wolf Blitzer, "The evidence is overwhelming ... From both the Iranians, Americans, and from congressional sources."

Also testifying will be David Kay, former UN nuclear weapons inspector. Kay headed the team searching for WMD in Iraq throughout 2003, but resigned on January 24, saying he did not believe Iraq possessed large stockpiles of chemical or biological weapons.

The hearing will be held October 11 at 10 a.m. in Room 2154 of the Rayburn House Office Building.

1. This is a PERFECT example of why we need to take back Congress
If we controlled Congress, we could force Rumsfeld, Condi, etc. to testify under oath before a committee about the administration's plans for Iran instead of Air Force Colonel Sam Gardiner.

If you're having a hard time voting for the Democrat in your particular district or state, think about this while you're pulling the lever on November 7th.
