Boswell is the first name added this year, as the most recent Representative to add her name was Wisconsin's Gwen Moore, who signed on December 19th.
Representative Boswell is a member of the powerful House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence - the primary committee in the U.S. House of Representatives charged with the oversight of the United States Intelligence Community.
Boswell's signing may be indicative of Congress beginning to shift in the direction of holding the Vice President and other Bush Administration officials more strictly accountable for the 935 lies documented by The Center for Public Integrity during their heavy push to war prior to the invasion and occupation of Iraq.
