Shorter CIA: "Impeach the President"

I think revelations by the CIA and 15 other American Intelligence agencies is the biggest news of the last twenty years and maybe my lifetime.

The President of the United States has known for over a year that Iran had ceased development of nuclear weapons in 2003 and has lied about it... and continues to lie about it.

We have to ask, Why?

But even more shocking than that...I have to ask myself how bad things must be for the Central Intelligence Agency to go public and call the President of the United States and his entire Administration Liars? It is essentially an accusation of "High Treason" and attempting to start what could be a nuclear war under false pretenses.

What would it take? The CIA kills people, for heavens sake...How big of a problem is a little lying about a nonexistent nuclear weapons program in a small foreign country?

The CIA revelations had to come at great personal anguish to nearly everyone in the agency. It had to be the realization that the people surrounding the President of the United States are crazy enough to really try to start World War Three just for the "Hell" of it, and the President of the United States is stupid enough to let them.

The CIA is essentially calling for the Impeachment of the President.

Now is the time for all good men and women to come to the aid of their country.

Maybe it is up to the rest of us, because It appears that there are very few of them in Congress.

Peace,

Steve

    The Clinton fiasco taught us one thing - what with all the legal wrangling, impeachment is a lengthy, drawn out process that sucks the life out of government. While it goes on, nothing else gets done. And right now, too much else needs getting done - immigration, health care, the Iraq war - all need their attention. Besides, the primary penalty for a successful impeachment is remaoval from office - and the idiots will be gone before the process reaches its conclusion. While I agree with the sentiment. and would love to see the bastards punished for their crimes, I believe its a total waste of time. What little legislative will there is needs to be directed elsewhere.

    Sometimes I hate pragmatism over principle, but this is one of the times I must succumb to it.

    Reluctantly agreed, jeff.

    I'd give anything to see them disgraced even more than they already have been, but the real leaders will never get the support from the GOP/DLC and they know it.

    The historical record holds all the facts and will outlive these vermin to tell of them and their treason for all time.

    Besides, on many of the crimes that BushCo have committed, there is no statute of limitations. Being out of office is no protection for traitors.

    I do not agree with this pragmatic argument. There is nothing pragmatic about leaving a president in office eager to illegally start a war. Even for one day.
