MEMORANDUM FOR: The President

FROM: Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity

SUBJECT: Recommendation: Try a Circle of "Wise Women"

By way of re-introduction, we begin with a brief reminder of the analyses we provided you before the attack on Iraq. On the afternoon of February 5, 2003, following Colin Powell’s speech before the UN Security Council that morning, we sent you our critique of his attempt to make the case for war. (You may recall that we gave him an “A

Calvin

You want to join the army, be my guest. They are looking for recruits.

DAVID - YOU MAY WANT TO REMOVE THE SITE THIS GUY HAS PLACED HERE.

and they plotted all this a year before 9/11, therefore 9/11 connection is an IMPOSSIBILITY.

and Condi et al for murdering all those Iraqui people INCLUDING children who never hurt us and also sick for Bushco murdering our American soldiers and coalition soldiers with HUGE LIES. It makes you a sicko psycho too for being a blindfaith follower to a bunch of madmen and madwoman such as the PNAC atrocity machine as these Neocon NON-Christian false prophets.

Our Congresspeople need to act NOW collectively regardless of party to immediately start impeachment and war crimes trials ASAP. ACT NOW!!! IRAQ BELONGS TO IRAQ PEOPLE & AMERICA BELONGS TO AMERICAN PEOPLE

The American People will no longer stand silently... the whole world is opposed to Bushco. Congresspeople, ACT NOW!!!

Bush has killed many more....with his illegal Iraq based on lies.

The Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity have done it again!

This is an outstanding piece of writing done with dignity and attention to detail. The VIPS lead anyone willing to read and understand point by point to the truth about the lead up to war in Iraq. Only those unwilling to read and unwilling to understand (read O'Reilly, et al.) will blather on in lock step with the captain of their sinking ship.

As always, Ray McGovern and colleagues have provided us another lesson in how things shouls have been done.

Well written and I eagerly await their next post.

Dear Intelligence Professionals Aug.24/05
Thank you kindly for your patriotism in standing up to Pres. Bush There have been brave patriots standing up, telling truth to power both as individuals and in small groups since bushco took over power Now we can stand together in sufficient numbers to get the job done. Now we are coming together in mass, at a scale and speed that is truly awe inspiring. This standing together alleviates some of the frustration and despair that we have felt watching this regime take over our Govt and our Country. It was incredibly sad to watch some Americans believe, or be taken in, or even support the lies. Its been a very dark and frightening 4 1/2 years. It was/is a consistent and overwhelming attack on every strand of our society and country.

Many Americans came to believe that there was nothing they could do. Yet a functioning democracy requires an educated,involved electorate. At precisely the wrong time many tuned out, making no further attempt to educate themselves. Many refused to become involved in"politics". This is the crux of the loss of our momentum since the Iraq invasion. Hopefully this is over. Apathy and Ignorace Kills. Right now there is a very strong political movement growing. Is it possible that we might lose it or that bushrove will remain unaccountable, the way they have been doing for 4 1/2 years?

The radical right wing controls the Congress and the media. They have billions, some are profiteering at a scale which provides ample motivation for them "to stay the course" There is a growing clamp down on dissent, with illegal arrests, tzars, dogs, disappearing, renditions, locking people up with out due cause or attorneys. There is the Patriot Act. Its pretty scary. People say it cant happen here? It is happening here, with all the appointments bush is making; such as wolfowitz to head the world bank,boulton to the United Nations as well as two appointment to the Supreme Court their power grows.

In addition, as Mr McGovern pointed out they also did a purge of the military and intelligence communities; replacing able and patriotic people with synchophants who have drunk the cool aid; ie people who for whatever motivation are willing to go along with bush policy. This makes us less safe. It undermines the basic historical structure of our govt. It alters the relationship of both the military and intelligence communities to the Executive and Congressional branches Intelligence is supposed to operate seperately from the Executive? Certainly they are not to be told what the intelligence is to be, in order to fit the intelligence to their policies as bushricecheney did

Politics for bushco means the consolidation of money and power.For them, politics dictates policy. Politics dictates both foreign and domestic policy. This is dangerous, destructive and corrupt.They put their interest and the interests of their "base", believers or supporters, and fellow profiteers/chronies first.

They put the interests of the American people last. Every single piece of the legislation passed in this Repub Congress is either in the service of the consolidation of power,and/or the accumulation of wealth. From corporate subsidies, to rolling back environmental laws, to protecting corporate abuses, to consolidation of media outlets, to undermining education and social programs,to attacking individual, civil, and worker's rights. The list is both overwhelming and very frightening. This consolidation of power is un American.

It seems that our Govt has been hijacked. It also seems that there are still a large number of (un) Americans who are supporting this and an even larger numberwho are ignorant, apathetic or in despair.We are very close to losing our Democracy. The regime operating in D.C. does not want and does not represent a functioning democracy.

They have no exit strategy because they never planned to exit Iraq.
They are building (reportedly) 14 military bases and a large Embassy.
The profiteering and our "national interest" requires a continued US and military dominance of the country,excluding business or corporate interests from other countries like China or Russia. This explains hillarykerry's support of the war. As citizens we are either ignorant (willfully or not) or complicit. The continued control/economic exploitation of iraq by violence explains one of the main motivations of the " insurgency" The Iraqis know why the US is there. The world knows why. Its only some Americans who dont know, or who dont want to know, or who know and are profiting.

The only sane exit strategy is to have buscho exit the White House. With all the evidence now, its is very apparent that they lied to the Congress and the American People about their reasons for going to war. It is time for Impeachment. Can you please tell us exactly
what we need to do as ordinary citizens to get the Impeachmentproceedings started? Time is of the essence. Do we have to wait for the Fitzgerald findings/indictments? Will this lead to indictments for the larger crime of lying to the American People and the Congress about the reasons for going to war? It seems that these are huge crimes. Its only the Republican corruption that prevents them from being investigated. The MSM is useless.

We have signed JohnConyers.Com petition and those at DSM site among others. However, the overwhelming corruption and arrogance of the republican Congress is a formidable obstacle. The silence of the democrats, with some exceptions, is also a huge obstacle. People are dying everyday. Children are dying in Iraq every day. As a teacher and an American citizen i find this immoral, criminal, horrifying
(i have seen the pictures), beyond shameful and simply unacceptable. In addition, we are creating enemies and destroying alliances at a rate which puts our own citizens at a much greater risk, while the criminals continue to line their pockets. The money stolen should be used to begin reparations.

We are both accountable and responsibile for what happened in Iraq.
If we do not reverse these premptive, exploitative, unilateral war policies it is quite likely that other countries will form alliances against us. Its a very serious situation we find ourselves in. There is hope. When the people lead the leaders follow.One citizen can make a difference as Cindy Sheehan showed us. Now we can stand together.
We must stop the war. We must impeach the bush regime. Thank you for your patriotism and years of service to our beloved Country.

Its time to wake these stupid veterans up, about the harsh reality of wars based on lies fighting terrorists who were CREATED by the USA and breeding destruction everywhere.

"NEW YORK The American Legion, which has 2.7 million members, has declared war on antiwar protestors, and the media could be next. Speaking at its national convention in Honolulu, the group's national commander called for an end to all “public protests

If I'm not mistaken, there is a reason the American Legion is *not* the Veterans of Foreign Wars. I've heard that the VFW is true to its name, only for veterans of foreign wars. So what does that make the American Legion? Not hard to figure out, is it?

John

Wonder how many will be cancelling their membership? Wonder if MSM will cover it?

Sorta like Bush-all for freedom, as long as no one uses it.

Better yet, ask a homeless one. We send them to war and then we leave them without help when they come back. Way to go, American Legion, support the administration that can't even support the returning soldiers. Way to go, American Legion, support the administration that can't even supply equipment to the men in combat.

It's too bad that Armstrong had to die, also!! How much money was he making? A lot more than the soldiers!! I have a brother-in-law in Iraq making $500.00 a day, of course he knows the risk and loves it! I can't get a job because no one will employ a disabled veteran, taking a medication, a safety liability, or so I've been told!!

Two things this week; first, read Joseph C Wilson's book "The Politics of Truth" WOW! if you haven't read yet it you owe it to your education to do so. Second, the nephew of a good friend was blown away in a Humvee somewhere in Iraq Monday. He's not honored by the continued carnage nor is he honoring those dead before him by his death. Anyone who thinks so is probably spending too many days away from the office. The reasons for our being in Iraq change as often as the administration changes the name to call the war. If they can't decide on a reason why we're there -WMDs - freedom and democracy - terror - whatever, maybe there is no reason to be there. Maybe we should humble ourselves, ask forgivness and leave.

Here is a pretty interesting run down on the "Treasongate" Players.

It is an honor to have met Ray Mcgovern,Ann Wright and Colleen Rowley they are true american patriots.I had the privlege of going to Crawford with Cindy and marching with the VFP,CODE PINK,MFSO,IVAW and GOLD STAR FAMILIES FOR PEACE.I am proud to say I know them.I will be going back tommarrow to see if I can help out. There is always lots to do,shuttleling,food,security from the nut cases at camp 1 and the peace house.If you have seen Bush in the last couple of days on his "stay the course tour" you can see he is going down fast.Not fast enough but fast.It is time to impeach and indict the lot of them for war crimes.On the 24th of Sep I hope we can finish this mess and start to BRING OUR KIDS HOME!
