"America has two great dominant strands of political thought - conservatism, which, at its very best, draws lines that should not be crossed; and progressivism, which, at its very best, breaks down barriers that should never have been erected." -- Bill Clinton, Dedication of the Clinton Presidential Library, November 2004

DEAN SAYS THOSE IN ADMINISTRATION WHO MISLED NATION SHOULD RESIGN



Manchester, NH – Former Vermont Governor Howard Dean issued the following statement today:

“Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld's statement yesterday – that he only found out that the Niger documents were forgeries – “within days” was stunning.

”What is now clear is that there are those in this administration that misled the President, misled the nation, and misled the world in making the case for the war in Iraq.

”They know who they are. And they should resign today.

”There will be investigations, and the truth will come out – the American people must know the truth – and those in this administration must be held accountable for their failure to give us the truth before we went to war.

”But we do not need to wait for the investigations to rid these people from our government – they can resign on their own today.

”I am now convinced more than ever that it was a mistake to have given this administration a blank check to engage in this war – as too many in Congress did when they supported the Iraqi war resolution.”

About Nation-Building

Nation-Building was founded by Aziz Poonawalla in August 2002 under the name Dean Nation. Dean Nation was the very first weblog devoted to a presidential candidate, Howard Dean, and became the vanguard of the Dean netroot phenomenon, raising over $40,000 for the Dean campaign, pioneering the use of Meetup, and enjoying the attention of the campaign itself, with Joe Trippi a regular reader (and sometime commentor). Howard Dean himself even left a comment once. Dean Nation was a group weblog effort and counts among its alumni many of the progressive blogsphere's leading talent including Jerome Armstrong, Matthew Yglesias, and Ezra Klein. After the election in 2004, the blog refocused onto the theme of "purple politics", formally changing its name to Nation-Building in June 2006. The primary focus of the blog is on articulating purple-state policy at home and pragmatic liberal interventionism abroad.
