Impeachment Starts at Home

Former Intel Officials Urge Senate Judiciary to Hold Mukasey Nomination

On Friday, four former JAG officers—two of them admirals, two of them generals—sent a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy, urging him to consider Michael Mukasey's nomination in light of his failure to go on the record about the legality of waterboarding. "This is a critically important issue," they wrote," but it has not, and never has been, a complex issue, and even to suggest otherwise does a terrible disservice to this nation. All U.S. Government agencies and personnel, and not just America's military forces, must abide by both the spirit and letter of the controlling provisions of international law. Cruelty and torture—no less than wanton killing—is neither justified nor legal in any circumstance." Today, as the Senate Judiciary Committee prepares to vote on Mukasey's nomination, a group of 24 former intelligence officials—among them, Valerie Plame Wilson—fired off their own letter to Leahy and ranking member Arlen Specter, calling on them to hold the nomination of the president's AG pick until he clarifies his position on the controversial interrogation practice. "Judge Mukasey’s refusal to comment on waterboarding, on grounds that it would be 'irresponsible' to provide 'an uninformed legal opinion based on hypothetical facts and circumstances,' raises serious questions," they wrote, noting that the "conundrum created to justify the nominee’s silence on this key issue is a synthetic one." http://www.motherjones.com/mojoblog/archives/2007/11/6080_former_intel_of.html

Since congress is clearly criminal....come on folks...this congress approved John Negroponte, who would be in jail for life if ever he had to stand trial in WORLD COURT, they would approve Himmler as AG. We have to embarass or jam this congress into acting within the law and to enforce the law against Bush, that starts at home. Demand your local council and state legislature IMPEACH CHENEY AND BUSH. The only procedure that should precede impeachment is the arrest of both thugs FOR TREASON. A mountain of evidence exists in the Library of Congress and the National Archives. Then IMPEACH CONGRESS for
being the most cowardly, NONrespresentative congress in the history of the nation.

In Canada we should impeach Harper for the softwood lumber SCAM and arrest his sorry ass
for selling out Canada in low oil royalties to his American owners. In both countries we need to kick out faith based funding of fascism through our taxes and expose the Christian crusade (END TIMERS) behind this fraud using God. Our "leaders" from Chretian, to Martin to Harper have each signed the North American Union, the treasonous accord that merges entire countries without bothering our elected officials (parliament). THAT Is treason...and it is high time we had a tea party of our own and kicked out these goose stepping fascist, fundamentalist frauds. If our parliaments of supposedly elected officials will not act - then we must. Start with your local council, then the State....millions of us will march, candles in hand
to expose these monsters and watch their cowardly crude wither in the light of truth.

Better yet, bring the military home and insist Bush be guarded by government secret service...not a private gang accountable to no one and above the law. Then arrest the murdering, lying, cheating thief..before he and Cheney allow another attack on America.

Remember one thing - these are cowards. FACE THEM DOWN. Let them know we see them - all of them.
