March 27, 2008: PINKSLIP BUSH AND CHENEY…LET FALLON TESTIFY!


Dear Ed.,


Thank you to everyone who marched and stood vigil in Washington, DC and your communities to mark two grim milestones -- the 5th anniversary of the war and the 4,000th US soldier killed in Iraq. We are grateful for your continuing and tireless commitment to creating peace.


Still reeling from these milestones and the renewed violence in Iraq, we must do all we can to stop an invasion of Iran. We lost an important voice when Admiral William "Fox" Fallon, head of the US Central Command and responsible for the overall military strategy in the Middle East, resigned as of the end of March. Fallon reportedly left his position because he lost faith in the civilians leading our military, and especially over whether a military attack on Iran should be pursued.


Fallon, who has graciously met with CODEPINK to discuss the Iraq war, was opposed to the surge in Iraq and urged President Bush to avoid war with Iran. He stated that he wouldn't let a war with Iran happen "on his watch."


Now that he is no longer officially "on watch," we need to keep his voice and wisdom alive in Washington.


The Bush Administration will not allow Admiral Fallon to testify before Congress in April; it only wants Congress to hear the voice of General Petraeus-the "feel good" military man who says the surge is working


This is a travesty. Congress needs the perspective that Fallon's deep and reasoned knowledge of the situation in the Middle East brings. During a time when military endeavors in both Afghanistan and Iraq have failed miserably, we can't afford to let our President start a third catastrophe in Iran.


Please call Senator Biden (202-224-4651) or email the Foreign Relations Committee today to urge them to have Fallon testify.


Thank you for helping to bring reason and experience to our failed foreign policy,
Dana, Desiree, Farida, Gael, Gayle, Jodie, Liz, Medea, Nancy, Rae, and Tighe

P.P.S. If you can't join us in New Orleans for V to the 10th, you can still support the CODEPINK V garden we are planting in the 9th ward.


Please call Senator Biden (202-224-4651)


or email
the Foreign Relations Committee today to urge them to have Fallon testify


Join CODEPINK in New Orleans, April 11th and 12th, as we celebrate V to the 10th, the 10th anniversary of Eve Ensler's V-Day!
