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>
