Pressure Senate Foreign Relations Committee to Invite Admiral Fallon to Testify!
Tell Congress to hear the Truth! Listen to the people and Admiral Fallon!
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.
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.
