MundiMuster! It's Time for Accountability from the Bush White House

[via the DNC] “Dear Jack Stack,

George Tenet's surprise resignation as CIA director comes at a time when the Bush administration is facing tough questions about its record protecting the security of the American people. Just this week:

 President Bush consulted with a private lawyer about the investigation into which White House officials revealed the identity of an undercover CIA agent last year. The American people still don't know who in the Bush White House revealed this information.

 The FBI began administering lie detector tests to administration officials to determine who leaked extremely sensitive intelligence about Iran to the Bush administration's close ally Ahmed Chalabi, who has been accused of passing it on to Iran.

And the Bush administration has still refused to hold anyone accountable for the intelligence failures that led to September 11, the lies about Iraq's nonexistent weapons of mass destruction, our failure to plan for post-war Iraq, and the failure of leadership that lead to the torture at Abu Ghraib prison.

At every turn, President Bush has passed the buck, pointed fingers, and blocked investigations. America's security depends on responsible leadership from the White House, leadership that we have not seen from Bush.

Take Action:

Sign our petition to President Bush demanding that he take immediate steps to bring real accountability to his national security team -- even if it means cleaning house.

Tell a Friend:

Help us hold Bush accountable. Spread the word and tell your friends about our petition.”
