260 GROUNDS FOR IMPEACHMENT

3 02 2008

from the Center for Public Integrity:

In short, the Bush administration led the nation to war on the basis of erroneous information that it methodically propagated and that culminated in military action against Iraq on March 19, 2003. Not surprisingly, the officials with the most opportunities to make speeches, grant media interviews, and otherwise frame the public debate also made the most false statements, according to this first-ever analysis of the entire body of prewar rhetoric.

President Bush, for example, made 232 false statements about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and another 28 false statements about Iraq’s links to Al Qaeda. Secretary of State Powell had the second-highest total in the two-year period, with 244 false statements about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and 10 about Iraq’s links to Al Qaeda. Rumsfeld and Fleischer each made 109 false statements, followed by Wolfowitz (with 85), Rice (with 56), Cheney (with 48), and McClellan (with 14).

Anybody unwilling to indict them should be indicted along with them.

It’s important to keep making noise about the lies we were told
to get us into Iraq. It will make people less likely to believe the lies we are being told now.

I see less than nothing being done, except more coffins……and must confess that the prospect of them reviving the military draft gets more likely all the time, I have a son who will turn 18 next year, and I will be a sad sorry son of a bitch if I let them get their hands on him, for the purpose of enforcing their
will, aims and interference upon the world
