WHEREAS this evidence included forged documents alleging an attempt by Iraq
to purchase uranium in Niger and Secretary of State Colin Powell’s presentation
to the United Nations on Iraq’s “weapons of mass destruction” that was used to
justify military action;
WHEREAS recent information in the media reveals that the current United
States Administration subverted the analysis and presentation of intelligence on
Iraq, resulting in distorted and incomplete evidence about the threat Iraq
presented to the United States;
WHEREAS questions surrounding the reliability of our intelligence on Iraq may
make it difficult for other nations to support future actions to confront
WHEREAS the United States Senate Intelligence Committee is currently holding
“closed-door” hearings to examine the accuracy and integrity of intelligence
information used to justify the attack on Iraq; and
WHEREAS public access to information and governmental disclosure of procedure
and policy is critical to the survival of our democracy and to the credibility
of our moral and political influence abroad;
THEREFORE the 2003 General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association
calls upon the United States Congress to conduct open bi-partisan hearings to
examine the moral and legal justification for the invasion of Iraq. As Unitarian
Universalists committed to the search for truth and the integrity of the
democratic process, we call for this immediate action.
