Background

 

“A small group of well-placed right-wing activists with close ties to hawks in the offices of Pentagon chief Donald Rumsfeld and Vice President Dick Cheney, as well as next Senate Majority Leader, Trent Lott, is busy readying a new campaign to rally public support for the invasion of Iraq. The ‘Committee for the Liberation of Iraq’ is setting up offices on Capitol Hill this week, […] The chairman of the new Committee, Bruce P. Jackson, is a former vice president of Lockheed Martin who chaired the Republican Party Platform's subcommittee for National Security and Foreign Policy when Bush ran for president in 2000. Jackson, […] resigned from Lockheed earlier this year to, in his words, ‘pursue democracy building projects full-time.’”
