Sign My Letter to Bush Demanding No Pardons for Treasongate


By Congressman John Conyers

As the Fitzgerald investigation nears its conclusion, I am becoming increasingly concerned that Bush will prevent the exposure of wrongdoing in Treasongate by pardoning any indicted members of his administration before trial. I wrote a letter in July asking the President to pledge not to pardon these persons. I have yet to receive an answer so I have organized a letter writing campaign demanding an answer. Over 4,000 people have already signed so I'd like to generate at least 10,000 letters to Bush.

As some of you may recall, the President's father, President George H.W. Bush, pardoned officials under indictment in the Iran-Contra scandal. Some of those pardoned by Bush Sr. include officials in the present White House, like Elliott Abrahms, as well as others who have been purportedly linked to the falsification of the Niger documents. Those previously indicted and pardoned seem to be nearby when further crimes are committed against our country.

While the White House had publicly promised its full cooperation with the investigation, their strategy has been attack, attack, attack -- most significantly on Mr. and Mrs. Wilson, the prosecutor, the Central Intelligence Agency and the press. Let's make sure that while the administration tries to divert attention away from its culpability, they are forced to pledge that those indicted by Fitzgerald will not be pardoned by the President.

or PNACgate? (or is that redundant???)

"OUT" THE PNAC !!!

No Pardons!!!

A Congressional investigation into the Bush administration's lies and abuse of intelligence to justify the Iraq War must investigate all administration members up to and including President Bush, to whom the following request must be made: If you can, please explain why your documented effort to fix the intelligence around your go-to-war policy is not an impeachable crime.

If Treason is legal, then our country is going down in shame!

No one in this nation is above the law.

All people involved in Treasongate that are guilty of breaking the law should receive the maximum penalty allowed under law and then the penalty must be applied and enforced

Sincerely,

Gerald Wright

No pardons should be had to someone who has lied .
No pardons should be to those who did wrong,by exposing somone in the service of their country .
To many falsehoods in this group in DC. Things need to change .

I followed orders and did what I was told to do unquestioningly. Because of those actions, though, I still suffer from terrible nightmares and PTSD because of some of the officials currently pardoned and in the White House now. What I was told and what was really true about why I was there are two very different stories. I recently watched a documentary I ordered called "The Panama Deception." It was only then that I learned the whole truth about why I was there and had to pick up pieces of my best friends, literally. What I did and what I went through will haunt me to the end of my days. I wouldn't wish that on anyone, yet it is happening right now as I type this to more young people of both sexes who will come home with visions, smells, and memories of gruesome events that were totally unnecessary and built on lies. Generations of my family fought and died for this country and what they believed in. They would be turning over in their graves to see what is happening now. It MUST be stopped immediately. Want to support the troops? Bring them home NOW! Then take care of them.

THERE SHOULD NEVER BE ANY PARDON FOR TREASON. IT SHOULD BE AN AUTOMATIC DEATH PENALTY NO EXCEPTIONS EVER.

nixon was a angel compared to the crooks in the white house now, people are dying in iraq over this administrations lies. I used to be a believer in justice and accountability, there is no justice.

congress should pass a law phrohibiting the president to forgive treason crimes.

hopefuly we will not have that problem....I still think bush will end up in jail for war crimes with sudan as his cell mate.

cheeney and rummie deserve to be in the torture chambers thay created..

I feel like I want to vomit!

everything the administration has done needs to be investigated...

appears to me that fearful events were created to convince the country to agree to the administration's hallibuarton get richer war.

kind of reminds me Germany in the late thrities...

very evil very sick

Bush (and others) lied: people died.When those dead live again in this world, that is the time to pardon those lies. Which is to say, NEVER.

Dear Mr. President,

In 2003 You assured America if anyone in your administration was "involved" in the leak of a CIA agent you would take action.
Being a man of consistent honor and integrity, you continued to reiterate your position for almost rwo years.

However, in recent months, when the rats leaked their own testimony, it became clear several in your administration were obviously involved. Being a steadfast man of character, you decided their own statements of involvement in what you had previously described as "a serious crime" were no longer cause for discipline, they must be actually proven to have committed a crime!

Worse, from the testimony of your closest advisor, Carl Rove, it is now known you were informed within weeks of the outing by Rove himself that he, Libby, and others were all involved in the "leak." And what was your reaction Mr President?

Just as on 9-11, when you were advised: "Mr President...America is under attack...," you CHOSE to do NOTHING! In that case, you allowed the rest of government and a shocked nation to fend for themselves while you HID in a mountain in Nebraska. In the present crisis of national security, you remained [and still remain] silent, continuing to deceive the press and public, even as you allowed [force] a special prosecutor to spend two years wading through lies and stone-walling. This from a man who promised [bragged] he was restoring HONOR and decency to government! Can you produce any evidence to demonstrate you even have the slightest concept of what those terms mean ?

I join in Congressman Conyer's request that you publicly promise not to pardon anyone involved in the "Treasongate" affair.

Beyond that, I request that you promise not to accept another single resignation. I call upon you NOW to honor your original commitment to IMMEDIATELY FIRE anyone who was involved in the leak!

No one knows exactly what answers you and Mr Cheney provided to the FBI in their original inquiry. However, from the public statements the Vice President has made over the past two years, and the evidence contained in the Libby Indictments, it is now clear the Vice President LIED to the press and the American people. This may not technically constitute a crime. It does demonstrate a wanton indifference to public honesty and integrity. You should demand Mr. Cheney's immediate resignation!

If after all the information that has come to light in the present investigation, not to mention the Downing Street documents, detainee abuse, and a host of scandals, you still believe you are a man of honor and a capable President, common decency mandates that you call for an immediate Independent Investigation of your whole administration.

Failure to take appropriate action and address the public's concern will only result in the continued erosion of confidence in your government and threaten national stability.

For once in your administration, I implore you to do the right thing.

Found this little tidbit....

DEAR GEORGE:

I FULLY EXPECT YOU TO PARDON ALL OF YOUR CRIMINAL CABAL THAT ARE CONNECTED TO THOSE FORGED DOCUMENTS; INCLUDING THOSE BEHIND THE LIES AND/OR FABRICATED INTELLIGENCE BEHIND YOUR BLOOD FOR OIL WAR; INCLUDING ANY ISRAELI SPIES WITHIN THE US DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE; INCLUDING THOSE CONSPIRING ZIONIST-NEO-NAZIS WITHIN YOUR CABINET; INCLUDING ANY TALK SHOW HOSTS WHO MAKE OFF THE WALL COMMENTS PROMOTING EUGENICS IMPOSED UPON BLACK AMERICANS (OR PERHAPS AGAINST ALL PEOPLE OF COLOR--OR AS YOUR GRANDFATHER, YOUR GREAT GRANDFATHER, AND POPPY WOULD HAVE IT); INCLUDING ANY OF YOUR OIL AND COPORATE ROBBER BARRON CRONIES (AND AGIN, INCLUDING THE ONES IN YOUR CABINET); INCLUDING ALL OF THOSE WHO HAVE LOST, MIS-SPENT, OR JUST PLAIN RIPPED OFF TAX COFFERS TO EITHER INVADE OR REBUILD IRAQ; INCLUDING PAID TORTURES IN ABU GRAIB, GUANTANAMO, AFTHANISTAN AND ELSEWHERE; INCLUDING ALL OF THOSE WHO CAN BE SIGNIFICANTLY CONNECTED TO ALL OF THOSE MYSTERIOUSLY UNANSWERED 9/11 QUESTIONS...

AND FINALLY, INCLUDING ALL OF THOSE CONNECTED TO THE CIA LEAK AND THE DOWNING STREET MEMOS...

OR IN FACT,
OR WHILE YOU'RE AT IT,

I FULLY EXPECT YOU TO PARDON YOURSELF.

HOWEVER, I AM DEMANDING THAT YOU DON'T!

Eversince his first day in the White House, George Bush The Zero has been the star puppet in the Grand Guignol from Hell that his administration has been from the start. Who has been pulling the strings? Karl Rove for one, very obviously, and Dick Cheney for another, underhanded and most eggregious of the bunch. Let's hang them all at the public gallows.

Pardon allowed, but only if they daily give a talk on what they did to high school classes with plenty of time for questions from the students. Also a gatekeeper to make sure they are telling as it was. Then after a year, they would have to get a job at minimum wage and aafter work help the war wounded who can't feed themselves.

Oh the irony. An administration that is always preaching to us about "moral values" is staffed by a bunch of common criminals. Treason, perjury, and the list goes on. Keep the indictments coming, and fully investigate the WHIG. All criminals should be held accountable for their actions and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, including those in the government.

I do not believe for one second that Bush is not involved in this. The Iraqi War Group is part of the plan to invade a sovereign country. The invasion of Iraq was discussed before 9/11. The republicans sent a letter to Clinton asking him to invade Iraq. The overall plan of the PNAC..Project for the New American Century is to restructure the middle east at all costs. Remember that the Jewish Lobby is the most powerful in Washington and our presence in the middle east is what they want.

It is common knowledge for those that read independent news that the intelligence was manipulated by those at the top to promote public support for a war in Iraq. It is so obvious that there needs to be no more discussion on the subject. They will be quick to blame the CIA or Britain..Anyone or any organization to free them from liability.

The ideology behind the neoconservatives is deception and lies because in their way of thinking the masses would never support their agenda if the truth be known. One of the key members of the Leo Struass Neoconservatism is Paul WOlfowitz who is now in charge of the World Bank I believe but was Deputy Secretary of Defense. These members, 60 within this administration, are disciples of this philosophy believing that the elite should use deception, religious fervor and perpetural war to control the ignorant masses.

According to Strauss analyst, "The people are told what they need to know and no more." While the elite few are capable of absorbing the absence of any moral truth, Strauss thought, the masses could not cope

Not surprisingly, Strauss' attitude toward foreign policy was distinctly Machiavellian. "Strauss thinks that a political order can be stable only if it is united by an external threat," Drury wrote in her book. "Following Machiavelli, he maintained that if no external threat exists then one has to be manufactured."

"Perpetual war, not perpetual peace, is what Straussians believe in," says Drury. The idea easily translates into, in her words, an "aggressive, belligerent foreign policy," of the kind that has been advocated by neocon groups like PNAC (Project for the New American Century) and AEI scholars – not to mention Wolfowitz and other administration hawks who have called for a world order dominated by U.S. military power. Strauss' neoconservative students see foreign policy as a means to fulfill a "national destiny" – as Irving Kristol defined it already in 1983 – that goes far beyond the narrow confines of a " myopic national security."

Hopefully the Lord will intervene and save our country.

Truth is the ONLY thing worth dying for!
