REAL SECURITY FOR AMERICA

Monday, September 18, 2006

"The Geneva Convention...is just not some concept; it has saved lives...we cannot and must not and need not change the Geneva Convention in a way that would be perceived as backing out of it."

---Sen. Lindsey Graham on CBS "Face The Nation," 9/17/06

Sens. Warner, McCain, Graham, and Levin have proposed a tough, effective bill on military tribunals for detainees which meets the standard set by the U.S. Supreme Coury and keeps our troops safe.

General Colin Powell, President Bush's own Secretary of State and former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, warns the Bush version "would put our own troops at risk."

President Bush and Republicans continue to justify the invasion of Iraq by drawing non-existent links to the 9/11 attacks. The Bush PR campaign around the solemn anniversary of 9/11 didn't work. The American people understand the war in Iraq and the war against terrorism are distinct.

The President's Iraq policy has made us less safe and must be changed.

The war in Iraq has made our effort to defeat terrorism more difficult.

Republican-controlled Senate Intelligence Committee report found there were no ties between Iraq and al Qaeda.

It's time for a New Direction against terrorism, not just Republicans' half-truths and scare tactics. Democrats want aggressive prosecution of suspected terrorists and judicial procedures that won't be overturned by the Supreme Court.
