Unfortunately I didn't record him quoting from Goering as he did when he started this speech. To start the speech out in such a way is very courageous, directly tying the war resolution's implications and the majority Senate's acceptence of it's premise to Goering's quote (and of course the Bush administration, as the authors, were directly implicated - this will be ignored by media of course).

His speech lasted 30 minutes and is found here in two parts for those who would rather download the whole thing.
