That's It: Impeach the New York Times

By David Swanson

Is that anywhere in the Constitution? Seriously, did you see today's NY Times editorial, which purports to explain the difference between the NSA spying leak and the Valerie Plame leak. The former is a story of crime leaked by a whistleblower and forced into print by an enterprising reporter who got a book deal. The latter is an act of retribution against a whistleblower, an act with which a New York Times reporter was complicit and about which the NY Times kept silent until forced to speak. But that's not exactly how Judith Miller's former employer tells it:

Distinguished Panel Hears Charge of Crimes Against Humanity

www.bushcommission.org

The International Commission of Inquiry on Crimes Against Humanity Committed by the Bush Administration has announced January 20-22 for its final session of hearings. Verdicts are expected around the time of the Bush’s State of the Union address and nationwide demonstrations occurring then. The work of the Commission is historic, with the potential to profoundly affect the gathering storm around the Bush administration.

The International Commission of Inquiry on Crimes Against Humanity Committed by the Bush Administration of the United States

The International Commission of Inquiry on Crimes Against Humanity Committed by the Bush Administration of the United States, www.bushcommission.org

When the possibility of far-reaching war crimes and crimes against humanity exists, people of conscience have a solemn responsibility to inquire into the nature and scope of these acts and to determine if they do in fact rise to the level of war crimes and crimes against humanity. That is the mission of the International Commission of Inquiry on Crimes Against Humanity. The final session will be held January 20-22 in New York City. This tribunal will, with care and rigor, present evidence and assess whether George W. Bush and his administration have committed crimes against humanity. Well-established international law will be referenced where applicable, but the tribunal will not be limited by the scope of existing international law.
