Censure Bush for Misleading Us

February 12, 2004


In an attempt to evade responsibility for the misleading statements that pushed the nation into war, President Bush has announced plans to form an independent inquiry to look into what went wrong. An inquiry would serve the Bush administration well: it would envelop the issue in a fog of uncertainty, deflect blame onto the intelligence services, and delay any political damage until 2005, after the upcoming election.

But the facts need no clarification. Despite repeated warnings from the CIA and the Defense Intelligence Agency, President Bush and his administration hyped and distorted the threat that Iraq posed. And now that reality is setting in, the President wants to pin the blame on someone else. We can't let him.

Congress has the power to censure the President -- to formally reprimand him for betraying the nation's trust. If ever there was a time for this, it's now.

Do it.

Censure???????? The sonofabitch spent a hundred billion on a war based on a pack of lies. That deserves more than censure. I want to give Texas back to Mexico. It's been nothing but trouble. We've pumped most of the oil out anyway.

Jeff-thanks for the humor. Being a Jew Chew, married to a Goy Toy, we have concluded Bush is Satan (yep, the Anti-Christ).

We were repubs until this year,now Independents. The corprotists and Bush's love affair with Fox helped destroy our country. Mandatory RFID coming soon....

Bush hyped the Intel? Where were you lefty conspiracy freaks in the 90s? Was the UN hyping the Iraqi threat when they passed 17 resolutions. Were the 1500 Kurds killed by gassed by Saddam killed by hype and not chemical weapons? Was Chief UN weapons Inspector Rolf Ekeus wrong when he said "The true threat Iraq poses in not from existing stockpiles rather a clandestine production capability, well integrated into the civilian infrastructure based on batch production and fast deployment". Was Clinton Hyping the Intel when he signed the Iraqi Liberation Act of 1998 and said this while addressing the Nation "The community of nations may see more and more of the very kind of threat Iraq poses now: a rogue state with weapons of mass destruction, ready to use them or provide them to terrorists. If we fail to respond today, Saddam and all those who would follow in his footsteps will be emboldened tomorrow." Was Teddy Kennedy Hyping the Iraqi threat when he signed this statement to the President along with John Kerry and Tom Daschle " "We urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq's refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs." Was the whole world guilty of Hyping the iraqi threat. Get real guys the only ones who have been duped are those of you who believe Saddam would allow 12 years of sanctions and risk his regime to protect weapons he never had.
