The Last Straw - Libby Testifies That Bush Authorized Leak

April 8th, 2006 by Andy in The Politics of Intelligence

This really is the last straw! If the congressional Democrats don’t support Russ Feingold’s proposal to censure George W. Bush now, when the hell will they! Really, censure is too mild - he needs to be ousted.

Not only did Bush leak, but he lied about it and had all of his lackeys like Scott Mclellan lie about it in the most indignant tones. I still am amazed that Kerry apologized for his remark in Philadelphia that this administration is the worst bunch of liars he’s ever seen.

Vice President Dick Cheney’s former top aide testified that President Bush authorized the release of parts of a classified report on Iraq to rebut criticism of the case for the 2003 invasion, federal prosecutors disclosed in documents released Thursday.

I wonder if anyone seriously doubts that the Bush, Cheney, Rove triumvirate was behind the “outing” of Valerie Plame in revenge for the Wilson article? I certainly don’t. As my friend Pat pointed out in reference to this whole sordid affair….

Clearly, Bush et. al. have an exaggerated sense of entitlement to do whatever suits their agenda, regardless of whether it is illegal or unethical. If Bush were a Democrat even with the current Republican Congress, we’d probably have another impeachment trial—and the issues would be a lot more serious than the Clinton fiasco. Clinton’s actions were sleazy, but nobody died from them.

Bush, on the other hand, perpetrated a lie about WMDs that ultimately cost thousands of young Americans, including my brother’s only son, their lives, not to mention the lives of many more thousands of Iraqis. It made the world an infinitely more dangerous place and opened the door for terrorists to recruit and train more crazies who think killing innocent people is the preferred way to deal with differing beliefs. And, the United States has clearly forfeited the moral high ground in the world community by ignoring its citizens’s civil rights and sanctioning the torture of prisoners.

Planning ongoing action regarding this would be useful, including letters to media as well as creating forms people can use to write/email/petition their reps, Senators and Democratic Party hacks who need a fire under their butts.

I also think that municipal governments and possibly even a state or two might be encouraged to pass resolutions calling for impeachment on grounds of treason and and other high crimes. I’m looking to network with people about that as well as about keeping pressure on Congress to respond definitively (as constitutionally mandated) to this virus that has depleted our republic’s political health. Email me at if you would be interested in helping to pursue this course of action, or post your comments and suggestions, as well as calls to action on this below in our comments section.

If two smoking guns aren’t enough, what is?
