Nasty Letters To Crooked Politicians

As we enter a new era of politics, we hope to see that Obama has the courage to fight the policies that Progressives hate. Will he have the fortitude to turn the economic future of America to help the working man? Or will he turn out to be just a pawn of big money, as he seems to be right now.

Manipulation of our National Intelligence Files for Political Purposes, and WAR, Calls for IMPEACHMENT NOW

Not very long ago, in a nation close to here, a partisan political attack on a popular twice-elected president distracted the country from progress, produced a $70 million dollar charade of an investigation by the republican prosecutor Kenneth Starr, and ended with an impeachment trial of President Clinton. He was charged with telling a lie, and the jury found the charges false.

Now, on the word of another White House resident, we have sent nearly two hundred young American sons and daughters to their graves in the hot, Iraqi desert. We have no count of Iraqi dead, estimated in the hundreds of thousands, since Rumsfeld’s defense department ‘doesn’t do body counts anymore,’ and the reasons for all of this may well be lies and distractions from the Bush Administration, to cover up their total lack of an agenda for America’s future.

But on Wednesday, June 11, 2003, the same bunch of house republicans that so supported the ‘rule of law’ in 1998, decided that no investigations are necessary into the Bush administration’s bellicose lies.

It is important that Americans get to hear the reasons Bush beat the drums of war for four long months, in the face of mounting intelligence and proof that there was no imminent threat to America. It is important that the rule of law, the one that requires IMPEACHMENT of a president who has lied to Americans, is invoked right now.

This is not about a personal and consensual zipper puller. This is not about a $100,000 failed land deal in the Ozarks.

This is about war, putting our troops in harm’s way, and destroying a sovereign nation.

There can be no more important cause for open investigations, and if proven that Bush lied to America to put us in a war for oil, that Impeachment proceeding begin immediately. Any politician who would cover up the truth now, with more lies, even by trying to parse the word "investigation" as Senator Roberts (R) did on ABC's Sunday Morning gasbag event, is guilty of complicity in the worst state misadventure in the history of the Republic.

It IS an INVESTIGATION, not a tea party. It is there to determine if IMPEACHMENT by the congress is the answer. It must be open, bipartisan, and complete. Otherwise, the flawed election of 2000, which has left a squatter sitting in the President's chair, has become an atrocity with tens of thousands of dead in the sand in the Iraqi desert.
