The NYT's Unconscionable Decision to Sit on the NSA Story for a Year


The one year delay in The New York Times' revelation of the warrantless electronic eavesdropping remains inexplicable. The Times' ombudsman, Byron Calame, wrote last Sunday that the high Times officials involved -- Bill Keller and Arthur Sulzberger -- refused to give any adequate explanation or to answer his questions. It did seem to Calame, however, that in effect they were claiming that to explain would be to give the government leads it could use to track down (and punish) the whistleblowers, the people whom one other writer, Jonathan Alter, believes are the true patriots here because they exposed serious governmental wrongdoing.

62% favor impeachment of Bush in a John Birch Society poll

I don't agree with the John Birch Society on much, but on this they seem to be talking our language:

President Nixon famously said that if the President does it, it's legal. And he didn't think that up on his own – that's a way of thinking that has long had currency in America.

"Got Impeachment?" w/poll

By Stirling Newberry, DailyKos

People here know that I have written on impeachment, both the historical and political reasons for it. People may know that if there were a compass that points at legitimacy, it would point straight at me. Legitimacy is the issue that Democracies must face. Without the faith by an overwhelming segment of the population in the integrity and legitimacy of the government, there is no government. The Declaration of Independence declares that legitimacy is the issue that Americans set their division from the mother country on.

The manager of the Radisson Lexington Hotel in midtown Manhattan was agitated as he ushered us out of the hotel’s lobby on December 30. It was understandable because two colleagues and I were wearing signs that said: “Boycott ExxonMobil/Radisson – U.S. Out of Iraq/Impeach Bush -

You Go, MyDD

By Bob Fertik,

Over at MyDD, Chris Bowers is launching an awesome project:

Ever since the 2003 primary season, the notion of political blogs conducting or commissioning their own telephone polls has flickered to the surface every now and then. A few months ago, Impeach PAC became the first blog to actually go through with it, raising enough money to commission Zogby to run a poll on impeachment.

NSA spy plot fuels call to censure Bush, Cheney

By Tim Wheeler, People's Weekly World Newspaper

Revelations that President George W. Bush ordered the National Security Agency to engage in massive spying on law-abiding people, in flagrant violation of federal law, have ignited a firestorm of angry demands that he and Vice President Dick Cheney be censured or even impeached.

Impeachment Radio

David Swanson will join Dori Smith of Talk Nation Radio for a 5 PM January 5, 2006 Interview on

To talk about the Impeachement of George W. Bush and Richard B. Cheney.

Energy is growing at the state and national level to impeach as the White House spy scandal provokes more press scrutiny of Bush's foreign and domestic policies. This against a backdrop of increasing anti-Iraq war sentiment and polls showing a majority of Americans would support an investigation into whether or not the President has committed impeachable offenses.

Time to impeach a President

By DOUG THOMPSON, Capitol Hill Blue

I’ve always felt impeachment is the nuclear option of politics; a drastic action we call in after all else fails. That’s why I’ve been reluctant to call for the impeachment of President George W. Bush.

January 8 Will Be Guerilla Impeachment Day!

OK, this comes from Kagro X at Daily Kos.

It seems as though the Kossacks are planning a guerilla impeachment day for Sunday, January 8, 2006. The Impeach Bush Coalition is joining in!

Who Me? I Just Live Here, I'm Not Responsible

Dan Simpson, a retired diplomat, is a member of the editorial boards of The Toledo Blade and Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. He lays out a case for impeachment and then says he's not arguing for impeachment because there's no chance the Republicans controlling Congress will impeach Bush.

That's It: Impeach the New York Times

By David Swanson

Is that anywhere in the Constitution? Seriously, did you see today's NY Times editorial, which purports to explain the difference between the NSA spying leak and the Valerie Plame leak. The former is a story of crime leaked by a whistleblower and forced into print by an enterprising reporter who got a book deal. The latter is an act of retribution against a whistleblower, an act with which a New York Times reporter was complicit and about which the NY Times kept silent until forced to speak. But that's not exactly how Judith Miller's former employer tells it:

Hey Ken Mehlman - Let's Debate Impeachment

By Bob Fertik, ImpeachPAC

Mr. Ken Mehlman, Chair
Republican National Committee

Dear Ken,

Today a spokeswoman for the Republican National Committee, Tracey Schmitt, dismissed as "fringe, to say the least."

"If Democrats choose to align themselves with such a laughable campaign, it will be at their own peril," Ms. Schmitt said.

Did Ms. Schmitt accurately reflect your views? If so, I challenge you to a public debate on the question: "Should George W. Bush be impeached for lying about Iraq?"

As a graduate of Harvard Law School and a frequent guest on talk shows, you are among the best debaters in the U.S.

Do you dare to debate me, a humble blogger, in front of a live audience?

Bob Fertik, President

Newspapers Urge President to Quit

Outrageous, out of the question? Of course. Then again, here's what happened in the summer of 1998 when the president was named Clinton. Dozens of editorial pages clamored for him to quit (see this a list). "He should resign," the Philadelphia Inquirer declared, "because his repeated, reckless deceits have dishonored his presidency beyond repair."

Making the case for a Bush impeachment

By James McWilliams, Register Guard (Oregon)

In his Dec. 22 column, Jonah Goldberg baited the Democrats to try to impeach President Bush for his unwarranted surveillance of American citizens. Was Goldberg trying to forestall such an option, or was he focusing on surveillance to draw attention away from the more egregious and clearly impeachable offense: the grand deception leading to war?

What is the Bush Administration Trying to Hide?

By David Wallechinsky, HuffingtonPost

President George W. Bush began the new year by telling the American people that his NSA domestic surveillance program was only used to monitor communications between members of al-Qaeda and people in the United States. He did not address the issue of why he deemed it necessary to bypass the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) that had, for 24 years, been reviewing and approving such surveillance programs.

ImpeachPAC today announced the formation of a Citizens Impeachment Commission to make 2006 the "Year of Impeachment."

"We are honored by the broad support for impeachment from this distinguished group of true American patriots," said Bob Fertik, President of ImpeachPAC. "Impeachment is not a 'fringe' position, as the Bush Administration would like Americans to believe. With a recent Zogby poll showing Americans support impeachment hearings by a solid majority of 53%-42%, there is far more support for impeachment than there is for the War in Iraq," Fertik said.
