This from Buzzflash by Greg Palast:
Here it is. The smoking gun. The memo that has, "IMPEACH HIM" written all over it.
The top-level government memo marked "SECRET AND STRICTLY PERSONAL," dated eight months before Bush sent us into Iraq, following a closed meeting with the President, reads, "Military action was now seen as inevitable. Bush wanted to remove Saddam through military action justified by the conjunction of terrorism and WDM. But the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy."
Read that again: "The intelligence and facts were being fixed...."
For years, after each damning report on BBC TV, "Isn't this grounds for impeachment?" Vote rigging, a blind eye to terror and the bin Ladens before 9-11, and so on. Evil, stupidity and self-dealing are shameful but not impeachable. What's needed is a "high crime or misdemeanor."
And if this ain't it, nothing is.
The memo, uncovered this week by the Times, goes on to describe an elaborate plan by George Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair to hoodwink the planet into supporting an attack on Iraq knowing full well the evidence for war was a phony.
Please, please read the rest of this and then tell me why this man is not being impeached this very minute.
Is this untrue? Does it not matter?
Bill Clinton was impeached over a sad little affair (if it could be dignified by the term). No one died. And his most vociferous and self-righteous attackers were - almost to a man, it seemed - guilty of marital transgressions many, many times more serious.
But it seems as if George W. Bush could hold up the bleeding, severed head of John Kerry and no one would give a rat's ass.
"He's a man of faith"
(so was Torquemada)
"He's the kind of guy you could sit and have a beer with"
(or two, or five, or fifteen - oh, I forgot he doesn't do that any more)
"He's a strong leader"
(so was Stalin)
Talk about your Teflon President.
Well, it's just another beautiful day in Hooterville.
