"The Vice President's Office: The Emotional and Intellectual Force Pushing the U.S. to War"


"The Vice President's Office: The Emotional and Intellectual Force Pushing the U.S. to War" Arianna Huffington

Here's the money quote from this morning's article by Jim VandeHei and Walter Pincus in the Washington Post:

The Niger claim was central to the White House's rationale for war, and Wilson was on a one-man crusade to disprove it. Early on, his actions caught the eye of the vice president's office, which was often the emotional and intellectual force pushing the United States to war based on fears of potential weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Cheney and Libby were intimately involved in building the case for the war, which included warnings that Iraqi President Saddam Hussein was actively pursuingnuclear weapons.
And central to building the case for the war was Judy Miller hyping the WMD threat on the front pages of the New York Times. Their connections ran as deep as the roots of the aspen trees. For more on this, check out this morning's Kausfiles.

IF the Grand Jury indicts the staff including Rove and his partners, especially in relating to this law, they have to resign and can either be pardoned or face the same wrath as Tom Delay faces.

793(c) is the most important LAW OVERALL under these circumstances, that applies to their revealing classified CIA information in espionage.

The Vice President can easily be forced to resign, by being indicted, since he is of frail health now.

The President however is a constitutional crisis. Bush is naive and its not clear to this crime stacked Senate especially, if he really was responsible for these decisions. If he was and the evidence is clear, to convict him would take convincing the rabid neo-cons in the Senate to do away with him.

This includes Joseph Lieberman a neocon. While I believe its possible, its a hard notion to sell.

What I see instead however is we must remember that Bush was SELECTED, as according to the supreme court ruling and whereby Theodore Olson who was his legal counsel. If he is not an official PRESIDENT, and if his presidency is proven by the jury to be illegal, he can be REMOVED from office by way of top-brass army officials which would lead to an interesting period of in-fighting.

Remember, if he is not named as an un-indicted co-conspirator, and instead is indicted on one count of conspiracy and obstruction, or if the indictment against him that's been supressed is released- He will have no choice but to be removed from office somehow if temporarily.

And if everyone, including millions of people understand legally, Al Gore won the presidency, he is an illegal president and therefore WOULD BE SUBJECT to all and any laws citizens are subject to.

How does this sound, very interesting yes?
