Global Message


  • Congress is quickly closing ranks behind the President, and soon America will be speaking with one voice in confronting a gathering threat to America and the future of peace around the world.

  • The treacherous history of Iraq's dictator is to wage war against neighbors, sponsor and support terrorists, and develop and use weapons of mass death.

  • We know the methods of this regime. They buy time with hollow promises and move incriminating evidence to stay ahead of inspectors.

  • A new UN resolution for weapons inspectors is needed and should enable full and unconditional access - including to Iraqi Regime government ministries and presidential palaces. We know that Iraq used such sites to hide weapons of mass destruction-related equipment and information. (from cleared DOS guidance)

  • The United States will work with other nations to bring Saddam to account, help the Iraqi people form a just government and a unified country, and should force be required, help rebuild a liberated Iraq.
