But what few people have yet realized is that the most offensive paragraphs were deleted before the vote. In other words, as “The Pen” wrote in the email I just received:
WE THE PEOPLE CUT THE HEART OUT OF THE LIEBERMAN-KYL AMENDMENT
It has taken a couple days for the actual disposition of the Lieberman-Kyl amendment to leak out, but in FACT, the two most offensive paragraphs (3 and 4), which we were objecting to so strenuously as amounting to a declaration of war on Iran, were REMOVED IN THEIR ENTIRELY [sic] prior to the vote. Which means we WON.
Yes, you did it, with your TENS of thousands of emails and phone calls to Congress this last Monday and Tuesday. We are so proud of our participants on this one. Claim your win.
