Rep. Kucinich: America Needs Iraq War Hearings

In an original Truthdig interview, Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio), the potential next chair of a key national security subcommittee, calls for congressional hearings into how and why America invaded Iraq, and demands “accountability” for those who led America into a “war based on lies.”
