She said they lied, and they did
It has been interesting to see how the pro-war crowd tries to demonize Cindy Sheehan.
She is no politician, like Sen. John McCain. She is a mother who has paid the greatest price for the war and she, along with the rest of America, deserves an explanation. The question is no longer whether or not the Bush administration lied; the question is, "Why did they lie?"
As someone who has studied U.S. policy in the Middle East for many years, I felt fairly certain that Saddam posed no threat to the United States. I got my information from newspapers, magazine articles and books.
McCain and his congressional colleagues had access to much better information than I did, and so did the Bush administration, but they chose to ignore it. Sheehan is right to call them warmongers.
President Bush should be impeached for lying to the American public. He and his Cabinet should be tried for war crimes. Don't expect to see it anytime soon, though, because the right is wallowing in power, and that power has become dearer to them than truth and justice or even human life.
