After Downing Street

After Downing Street (ADS) is an organization that describes itself as "a coalition working to expose the lies that launched the war and to hold accountable its architects, including through censure and impeachment." ADS was launched in May, 2005, when co-founder John Bonifaz sent a memo to Congressman John Conyers calling for impeachment. [http://www.afterdowningstreet.org/?q=node/5]

"The Nation"'s columnist John Nichols named After Downing Street as "The Most Valuable Progressive 2005, — Watchdog Branch," writing,

... the real work of exposing the misdeeds of the administration is still being done by activist groups. And the most inspired of these in 2005 was After Downing Street... In conjunction with Progressive Democrats of America, the able activist group that seeks to create an actual opposition party in America, After Downing Street is pushing the political envelope in exactly the direction it needs to go.
