Debunking Lieberman-Kyle


Gareth Porter easily destroys the claims Cheney Cabal, the Democrats and the media’s about Iran’s actions inside Iraq, the “presumption of guilt” established by the Imperial Senate’s passing of the Lieberman-Kyle resolution and explains the new jargon behind the White House’s Iran policy, what it means, who on the inside is resisting and what the American people can do about it.

  2. My representative, Honorable Julia Carson, was unable to vote on the Kyl/Lieberman Amendment, so abstained, which is so much better on my mind and conscience than a yea, and to my delight, Senator Lugar voted nay, although, with his friend Senator Clinton, Sen. Bayh yea. I do heavily lobby the three of them for peace, and appreciate truth’s comment above, as well as those of the brilliant Gareth Porter.
