sassa Posted July 11 Report Share Posted July 11 Democratic Hopeful Dean Wants Resignations Over Iraq Intelligence WASHINGTON - Former Vermont governor Howard Dean called Thursday for senior Bush administration officials to step down, after White House admissions to using bogus intelligence to justify war on Iraq, AFP reported."What is now clear is that there are those in this administration that misled the president, misled the nation and misled the world in making the case for the war in Iraq," Dean, a contender for the Democratic party's presidential nomination, said in a statement."They know who they are. And they should resign today," he said.Dean said the resignations would be just the first among several necessary steps of reckoning, as the U.S. public determines how U.S. pre-war intelligence was used earlier this year."There will be investigations and the truth will come out," he said. "The American people must know the truth -- and those in this administration must be held accountable for their failure to give us the truth before we went to war.""We do not need to wait for the investigations to rid these people from our government," Dean continued. "They can resign on their own today." Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
