Bishop joins Bush opponents

February 19, 2003

Albany-- Second District Congressman Sanford Bishop says he has doubts this is the time for war with Iraq. Bishop says the Bush Administration has not proven Saddam Hussein's support of terrorism enough to justify an invasion of Iraq.

The Congressman says he wants to give the U.N. inspectors more time to look for weapons of mass destruction.

"It appears the United States has taken the position of a bully," said Bishop. "I think we have to protect ourselves and our people. But I think that is when war is appropriate. I think a stronger case needs to be made for the relationship between the terrorists al-Qaida, as Saddam Hussein."

Congressman Bishop asks Georgians to pray for government leaders wisdom, as the threat of war looms.
