CFL ALERT: RETIRED MARINE GENERAL ANTHONY ZINNI SAYS NEOCONSERVATIVES HAVE HIJACKED THE WHITE HOUSE

*Retired Marine General Anthony Zinni gave an interview on CBSs 60 Minutes last night saying that civilian policymakers in the administration, also known as neoconservatives, pushed the war on Iraq as a way to make Israel more secure. He named Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz; Undersecretary of Defense Douglas Feith; Former Defense Policy Board member Richard Perle; National Security Council member Eliot Abrams; and Vice President Cheney's chief of staff, Lewis "Scooter" Libbyas those responsible for pushing the war on Iraq even though Iraq was contained and posed no threat to the U.S. . General Zinni said, They promoted it and pushed [the war] even to the point of creating their own intelligence to match their needs. They should bear the responsibility.

*Last week Senator Ernest Hollings from South Carolina wrote a column that appeared in several newspapers that asserted that the U.S. war against Iraq represented a decision by President Bush to protect Israel and ensure American Jewish support for his reelection. Senator Hollings said, Bush felt tax cuts would hold his crowd together and spreading democracy in the Mideast to secure Israel would take the Jewish vote from the Democrats. Tell your elected officials that they have a moral obligation to promote and protect Americans and American interests. Waging war against Iraq has cost over 700 American lives and 5,500 Iraqi liveswar, torture and cruelty have done nothing to promote American interests.

*Speak out against the power of neoconservatives to control and manipulate U.S. policy. Tell your representatives that you are appalled that civilian policymakers can make decisions about whether to wage war on countries, when members of the military establishment have warned repeatedly against war.
