Iraq Study Group
"At the urging of Congress, the United States Institute of Peace is facilitating the bipartisan Iraq Study Group, led by co-chairs James A. Baker, III, former secretary of state and honorary chairman of the James A. Baker III Institute for Public Policy at Rice University, and Lee H. Hamilton, former congressman and director of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. The Iraq Study Group will conduct a forward-looking, independent assessment of the current and prospective situation on the ground in Iraq, its impact on the surrounding region, and consequences for U.S. interests."

Foreign Policy In Focus (FPIF)
"...seeks to make the U.S. a more responsible global leader and global partner. It is a "think tank without walls" that functions as an international network of more than 650 policy analysts and advocates. Unlike traditional think tanks, FPIF is committed to advancing a citizen-based foreign policy agenda-- one that is fundamentally rooted in citizen initiatives and movements."

Global Policy Forum (GPF)
"We monitor global policy making at the United Nations"
"On the site, GPF has dozens of Publications on global policy issues, as well as thousands of pages of documents and data. The site is designed to be used by the general public as well as by students and specialists. GPF also provides many interviews to print and broadcast media and we respond to hundreds of inquiries from students and citizens."

Historians Against the War
Statement: "We historians call for a halt to the march towards war against Iraq. We are deeply concerned about the needless destruction of human life, the undermining of constitutional government in the U.S., the egregious curtailment of civil liberties and human rights at home and abroad, and the obstruction of world peace for the indefinite future."

Institute for Science and International Security
"Its efforts focus on stopping the spread of nuclear weapons, bringing about greater transparency of nuclear activities worldwide, and achieving deep reductions in nuclear arsenals. ISIS's projects integrate technical, scientific, and policy research in order to build a sound foundation for a wide variety of efforts to reduce the threat posed by nuclear weapons to U.S. and international security."

Publications, Papers and Assessments (selected)

[McDermott] - Congressman Jim McDermott (D-WA)
Official House of Representative page.
"In recent months, President Bush has made clear his determination to remove Iraqi leader, Saddam Hussein, from power. Congressman McDermott believes strongly that a unilateral attack on Iraq does not serve the best interests of the American people and calls for careful consideration of the many far-reaching consequences of preemptive military actions."

The Project Against the Present Danger
Standing in Defense of International Law, International Cooperation, and Multilateralism
Analysis and New Commentary from Foreign Policy In Focus (FPIF)

The War in Context
"alternative perspectives on the 'war on terrorism' and the middle east conflict"
"...invites anyone with interest and an open mind to listen to the critical discourse in which the policies and actions of the Bush administration are now being questioned. This debate, which is engaging concerned citizens around the globe, will hopefully inform the development of a sustainable new world order - a world order in which America is as much shaped by the World as is the World shaped by America."
