He's not cute in that "Hogan's Heroes" Nazi sort of way. I hope all of you have heard about the "Downing Street Memo," and are sufficiently outraged (though not surprised).
Here's what I got in my email from lp.org:
President Bush Urged to Answer Questions Regarding “Fixed” Intelligence on Iraq
(Washington, D.C.) On May 1, 2005, The Times of London published a document which is now infamously known as the Downing Street Memo. The memo is actually a document containing minutes from a July 23, 2002 meeting with top British officials and Prime Minister Tony Blair. The minutes candidly discuss the pre-invasion posturing that was taking place by the Bush administration a full eight months before Operation Iraqi Freedom.
Reporting in the meeting was Richard Dearlove, then head of the U.K.'s MI6. His statement is self-explanatory:
Bush wanted to remove Saddam, through military action, justified by the conjunction of terrorism and WMD. But the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy. The NSC had no patience with the UN route, and no enthusiasm for publishing material on the Iraqi regime's record.
Without question, this statement by the head of Britain's intelligence agency accuses the Bush administration of "fixing" the facts to support an invasion of Iraq. This is supported by the fact that we now know that the pre-invasion claims made by President George W. Bush and his administration regarding weapons of mass destruction were false. There were no stockpiles of chemical or biological weapons, no nuclear programs and not even a single Scud missile that could have delivered such weapons. Simply stated, there was no "gathering threat" when Bush sent American troops into harm's way.
Joining in the fight to expose the truth behind the Iraq conflict is Congressman John Conyers of Michigan (to his credit, Rep. Conyers voted against the initial use of force against Iraq). On his Web site, www.JohnConyers.org, citizens may sign a letter to President Bush requesting that he answer specific questions related to the Downing Street Memo and his aggression against Iraq. To date more than 540,000 individuals have signed onto the letter.
National Libertarian Party Executive Director Joe Seehusen stated, "Countless Americans have held the assumption that the Bush administration created a reason for war with Iraq. The Downing Street Memo provides us with solid evidence of such. It's time for President Bush to level with the American public and answer questions regarding this memo and his true reasons for the pre-emptive invasion of Iraq."
Yeah, I signed. To quote our great President, "These are people that have been trained to disassemble— which means not to tell the truth." Hey, we've never had 2 consecutive Presidents impeached. There's an idea. Y'know, every President that was elected in a year ending in 0 has either died in office or had an assassination attempt on his life. Why is it only the ones we like?
