BREAKING: Rice Called to Testify on Uranium Claims

Now we get to the juicy stuff.

Henry Waxman — head of the House Oversight Committee — has just called on Condi Rice to come to the Hill to testify about the Bush administration's Iraq/Niger/Uranium claim, the lie that gave credence to the "mushroom cloud" threat that got us into this damned war in the first place.

Dear Madam Secretary:

...I now request your appearance before the Committee at a hearing on Wednesday, April 18, 2007, at 10:00 a.m. in Room 2154, Rayburn House Office Building. At this hearing, you will be asked to provide testimony and respond to questions...on the claim that Iraq sought uranium from Niger, White House treatment of classified information, the appointment of Ambassador Jones as "special coordinator" for Iraq, and other subjects....


Henry A. Waxman Chairman
