Fire The Liar! End The Bush Crime Spree

April 9th, 2006 by Andy in The Politics of Intelligence

Its time for the Bush Crime Family’s reign to end. There needs to be a grassroots push for Bush’s impeachment. Call or write your senators and congresspersons and demand they support an impeachment resolution. Tell everyone you know to do the same. You can contact them by calling the Capitol Toll Free at 1-888-355-3588. Censure would be good, but inadequate. Bush has to be removed from office. He cannot be allowed to get away with such blatant criminal behavior. It will not happen unless there is overwhelming bottom up noise

This is the second major instance (about which there is no uncertainty) of Bush intentionally lying to the American people about matters that are pivotal to the security and of the United States. The first being the Weapons of Mass Destruction lie, which resulted in thousands of deaths of US soldiers, children, and other innocent civilians in Iraq, whose only crime was having the misfortune to be born into a country ruled by a dictator who was supported by the US government for many years until they needed Iraq’s oil more than they needed Saddam.

The WMD lie led in turn to this second proven lie about whether the White House was involved in exposing a US intelligence operative to punish Ambassador Joe Wilson for exposing the WMD lie. Either of these alone would constitute grounds for impeachment (not to mention that the first lie should result in Bush and company standing trial for war crimes), but taken together they show an arrogant disregard for the voters of this country, for the human rights of people here and around the world, and for the truth itself. I would be very surprised if the television news media bothers to provide the public with the context for this latest revelation, that context being the long chain of indignant denials by George Bush, Dick Cheney, official White House liar Mark McLellan, and others. If we had any real journalism at the networks, those clips would be all over the television tonight, but of course they won’t be.

As writer William Rivers Pitt pointed out in his column

“I don’t know of anybody in my administration who leaked classified information,” said George W. Bush on September 30, 2003. “If somebody did leak classified information, I’d like to know it, and we’ll take the appropriate action.”

“If someone leaked classified information,” said White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan on October 7, 2003, “the President wants to know. If someone in this administration leaked classified information, they will no longer be a part of this administration, because that’s not the way this White House operates, that’s not the way this President expects people in his administration to conduct their business.”

“I’d like to know if somebody in my White House did leak sensitive information,” said Bush on October 28, 2003. On this same day, Bush said, “I have no idea whether we’ll find out who the leaker is, partially because, in all due respect to your profession, you do a very good job of protecting the leakers.”

On Thursday, we found out who the leaker is.

We sure did. Read his full report here

These petty self-serving creeps cannot be allowed to continue spewing epistemological pornography on the public dime. I’m reminded of the McCarthy Army hearings where Army Attorney General Joseph Welch became exasperated with the mendacious Senator Joseph McCarthy and asked: “Have you no sense of decency, sir? At long last, have you left no sense of decency?” (But don’t mind me, I’m just caught up in “reality-based thinking,” which is the term the Bush spin-doctors use for truths they don’t like. It seems to me that we could use a whole lot more reality-based thinking and a whole lot less corporate smoke and mirrors.)

Go Here to send a message to President Bush calling on him to finally come clean with the American people about his role in the leaks of classified information.
