In the following images from Indymedia Washington DC Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., left, ranking Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, hand-delivers a petition from more than 500,000 Americans to the White House via an unidentified White House aide. John Conyers petition, also signed by 122 congressional representatives, seeks an inquiry into the so-called Downing Street Memos.
During the presentation of the petition Mr Conyers was accompanied by around 300 protestors. The presentation followed hearings held in the Capitol Building and carried live by C-Span.
The Day The Downing Street Memos Went To Washington - It's official: The Downing Street memos, a snooty New York Times "News Analysis" informs us, "are not the Dead Sea Scrolls." You are warned, Congressman, to ignore the clear evidence of official mendacity and bald-faced fibbing by our two nations' leaders because the cry for investigation came from the dark and dangerous world of "blogs" and "opponents" of Mr. Blair and Mr. Bush.
