Sheehan asking Bush the right questions
LINK TO ORIGINAL

Cindy Sheehan might dare to ask George W. Bush the question he fears most: "Mr. Bush, since you have told us that the war in Iraq is vital to America's freedom and that there is no higher calling for our young people than military service, why haven't your daughters volunteered to serve in Iraq?" If the war in Iraq isn't worth putting the sons and daughters of the rich and powerful in harm's way, we need to admit that and bring all of our troops home now.

The war in Iraq was sold to the American people by snake-oil salesmen who used lies and scare tactics. John Frary's blather would have you believe that all the pre-war hype about "weapons of mass destruction" and innuendoes of links between Saddam and al-Qaida or 9/11 were merely the result of honest mistakes caused by the use of imperfect intelligence. Nothing could be further from the truth.

The war-mongers in Washington never made the slightest attempt to honestly find out if Saddam's Iraq was a real danger to the United States. On the contrary, any intelligence analyst who attempted to downplay or discredit the need to invade Iraq was intimidated, transferred, or fired by the likes of John Bolton, Paul Wolfowitz and Dick Cheney.

For his crimes against America (and the world), George W. Bush deserves to be impeached. For honorable service to their country in a needless war, our troops deserve to come home.

The present President had in mind to correct his father and his advisors, to be a "war" president and to get re-elected. So far he only failed his first wish.

President Bush will never meet with Cindy Sheehan, the heroic Gold Star Mother who is demanding that he tell her the 'truth' about exactly why her son died in Iraq...exactly what the "noble cause" was that her beloved son gave his life for.

President Bush will never be able to tell her the honest truth.... because he lied to the American people**...

He lied to Congress**...

He LIED in a criminal effort on behalf of his American Big Oil supporters, his Administration cronies' oil interests, his "Project For A New American Century" Neoil-Con supporters, his own family's interests in American Big Oil and his own family's suspect relationship with the Saudi Royal Family...

He LIED in order to drag our nation into a war with Iraq for the sole purpose of destroying Saddam Hussein's Post-Gulf War Sanctions plans to have the French, the Germans, the Chinese and the Russians, by signedcontracts,* extract Iraq's oil and market it outside of the control of OPEC... thereby destroying OPEC's rigid, non-competitive control of oil prices and the outrageous profits being made and being enjoyed by the Bush / Chaney / Big Oil / OPEC / Saudi Royal Family CABAL and replacing it with honest competition ... an effort that
has resulted in the deaths of over 1800 American G.I.'s including Cindy's precious son, the wounding and maimingof over 14,000 American G.I.'s, and the deaths and injuries of over 100,000 Iraqi Civilians.

To paraphrase Mr. Joseph Welch, in his famous confrontation with the pathologically cruel Sen. Joseph McCarthy:

"Have you no sense of decency, Mr. President, at long last? ....Have you left no sense of decency?"

Al,
I've been a big fan since the late sixties. It's great to have you on board with additional research and insights into this scandalous and treasonous administration.

Liars tell lies and those who support liars have to repeat the lies. Although I never read the original article by Frary, one can surmise he repeated one of the biggest lies, we made a mistake. He and all the warwhores can beat that dead horse as long as they like but the FACT is, and as the Downing Street memo confirms, it wasn't a mistake. It was a planned effort to deceive the Congress and the American people about the truth. Guess what, we know the truth no matter how you spin it. This genie isn't going back in the bottle.

... and, when the best self-defense the pro-death people can muster is that our president and his advisors made a "mistake", doesn't that sound kind of pathetic?

The only reason Bush and his men have not been jailed for treason is that the GOP-led congress refuses to open a criminal investigation. If we spent one tenth of the $50 million Ken Starr spent, we'd find crimes that would dwarf Clinton's denial of marital infidelity and Nixon's break-in/cover-up combined. We're talking destroyed lives on an unprecedented scale, hundreds of Billions of our tax dollars, unimaginable dishonesty, pervasive incompetency in securing our nation and our occupied lands, manufactured "news" propaganda and an extra knife-twist: neglecting our National Guard troops.

It's accountability time. Watch them squirm.
