Today's question for Mr. Lynch

Why were you the only Massachusetts Representative to vote yes on House Resolution 861 on June 16, 2006?


From H RES 861:


Resolved, That the House of Representatives—


. . .


(3) declares that it is not in the national security interest of the United States to set an arbitrary date for the withdrawal or redeployment of United States Armed Forces from Iraq;

You voted for this? What were you thinking?


(4) declares that the United States is committed to the completion of the mission to create a sovereign, free, secure, and united Iraq;

Mr. Lynch, what is the mission? I thought we went to war to remove WMDs, err instigate regime change because Saddam was a bad man.


H RES 861 was introduced by Rep. Henry Hyde (R-IL) on 6.12.2006 and had no cosponsors. Not one. Nada. Zippty-doo-dah. Now I don’t know about you, but I’d be just a little curious why Mr. Hyde did not have at least one cosponsor. Could it be that Mr. Hyde is a bit of an odd duck with some strange ideas?

Hey Mr. Camper! Here is Stephen Lynch, in his own words, telling you what he thinks the mission is -- from the WGBH Forum Network, UMass Boston, Friday, March 4, 2005:

"I did want to distinguish my positions with those of my colleagues (Reps. Meehan and Frank), with great respect, on two points. One, I did support the decision to give the President the power to use military force in Iraq, back in November of, well, several years ago, at the beginning of this war. I did so not because it was a move to democracy or a hunt for weapons of mass destruction, but those were certainly on the table; my own reasoning after meeting with, countless times with the President's staff and also representative of the previous Administration, the Clinton Administration, my reasons were for, frankly, to remove Saddam Hussein from power."

He's a neocon. Awesome post. Thanks.
