    “The President has yet to make his case to Congress and the American people,” Rep. Farr said

    (Washington, DC) – Congressman Sam Farr (D-Carmel) joined his colleagues in Congress on both sides of the aisle who oppose President Bush’s apparent plans for a pre-emptive strike in Iraq.

    “There are so many unanswered questions at this point, and there is so little compelling evidence that has been brought to light about the need for an invasion of Iraq,” Rep. Farr said. “The President has yet to make his case to Congress and the American people.

    “Where is the proof that Iraq has shared its knowledge of biological, chemical and nuclear weapons, or the weapons themselves with other nations or terrorist organizations?” Rep. Farr said.

    Could the administration destroy its own policy of containing Iraq if a U.S. invasion causes Saddam Hussein to unleash chemical or biological weapons in an effort to hold onto power?”

    “Likewise, could containment of Iraq be destroyed if the administration’s strident support for a regime change increases Saddam Hussein’s interest in spreading knowledge of weapons of mass destruction to other U.S. enemies around the globe?”

    “And finally, the most important question of all,” Rep. Farr said. “Has the United States really done everything possible to seek consensus from our allies, and to find a diplomatic solution to the threats posed by Iraq?”

    Until the Administration has provided more justification for invading Iraq, this drastic step must be avoided, Rep. Farr concluded.
