It Bears Repeating Over And Over...

This letter appeared in the Bucks County Courier Times this morning from Phil Denny of Levittown, Pa., a Vietnam veteran and member of the following organizations: The Sierra Club, The National Wildlife Federation, The Humane Society of the United States, and the Bucks County Audobon Society.

The impeachment of a president is a serious thing; it has not happened often. However, the current occupant of the White House is more deserving of being impeached than any president in all of history!

I believe that Bush lied to America regarding the threat from Iraq. If Saddam Hussein was an immediate threat to the United States, as the White House claimed, then Bush may have had reason to invade Iraq.

It appears that Bush misled the American people as well as Congress by overstating the threat from Iraq. If Bush did lie to Congress, Bush violated laws that are related to fraud and false statements, Title 18, Chapter 47, Section 1001, and the conspiracy to defraud the United States, Title 18, Chapter 19, Section 371.

In my opinion, Bush is a liar and should be impeached! My research shows that:

He conducted illegal wiretaps of American citizens, and is in violation of international law by invading a sovereign country for illegal purposes;

Bush violated the Geneva Convention by torturing prisoners of war and holding prisoners with no formal charges and no legal representation;

Bush was also negligent in his slow response to help victims of Hurricane Katrina;

Bush shows contempt towards our Constitution and our Democratic ideals;

Bush lied about Saddam’s attempt to buy uranium from Niger;

Bush stated that Congress had the same information as the White House. He was briefed many times about the falsehood of various stories and this information never reached Congress;

Bush would often associate Iraq and Saddam Hussein with 9/11 in his speeches. He has since admitted that there is no evidence of any association;

Bush insisted there was a “relationship” between Iraq and al Qaeda. But the 9/11 Commission released a report saying that there was no “collaborative relationship” between the two;

Bush insisted there were weapons of mass destruction. After extensive searches, Bush was finally forced to admit that Iraq did not have weapons of mass destruction.

Space does not permit me to mention the many articles printed by citizens and the press regarding Bush and his failures and broken promises. He is a disgrace and worthy of impeachment!

Contact our congressman and senators and urge them to strongly support the Articles of Impeachment against George W. Bush.
