Former Colorado Senator Gary Hart, the new chairman of Council for a Livable World, said that the recently leaked National Intelligence Estimate confirms our worst fears over the impact of the Iraq War.
The Council for a Livable World strongly endorses U.S. Senator Daniel K. Akaka (D-HI) in his 2006 bid for re-election.
Council for a Livable World today hailed Ned Lamont’s victory in Connecticut against incumbent Senator Joe Lieberman “as a triumph for opponents of the Iraq war who favor a balanced national security policy that focuses on terrorism rather than a failed policy.”
The Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation today praised Republican Senators for urging direct diplomacy with North Korea, while criticizing remarks made last week by prominent former defense officials that encouraged a preemptive strike on a North Korean long-range missile before it could be launched.
Six months ago, there was only one Senator willing to call for redeployment of American combat forces out of Iraq, Wisconsin Sen. Russ Feingold. Today 39 Senators — including one Republican — voted to begin a troop drawdown in 2006 and 13 voted to complete the process by 2007.
