WASHINGTON, Feb. 14 /U.S. Newswire/ -- The Committee for the
Liberation of Iraq (CLI) is pleased to welcome Senator Evan Bayh
(D-Ind.) as an Honorary Co-Chairman. Bayh becomes the third U.S.
Senator to join the committee after Senators Joe Lieberman
(D-Conn.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.) announced their participation
on Jan. 28.

"To remove weapons of mass destruction, we must remove the
regime of Saddam Hussein," said Bayh. "To think anything else is
to delude ourselves." Senator Bayh was a leading sponsor of the
congressional resolution authorizing the use of military force in
Iraq (P.L. 107-243), and was a driving force in securing the
overwhelming vote in the Senate on Oct. 11, 2002.

During the Senate debate on Iraq, Bayh made a compelling case
for action: "It is my heartfelt conviction that weapons of mass
death in the hands of a brutal dictator such as Saddam Hussein,
combined with suicidal terrorist organizations that would all too
eagerly use these instruments of mass destructions against us,
represent an unacceptable risk for the safety and well-being of the
American people." <more>
