When Truth Is The Casualty


www.counterpunch.org

That most useless of all organizations, the U.S. Congress, finally released a report stating the President George Bush built the case for war through exaggerations, shading the truth and ignoring any intelligence he didn’t like. If this comes as a surprise to anyone it can only be a result of their being comatose for the last five years, and only awakening today and reading the report.

The hapless Senate couldn’t even get this information out before Scott McClellan, Mr. Bush’s former press secretary, wrote a book basically saying the same thing. It took a Senate ‘study’ to confirm facts that the world has known now for years: Mr. Bush knew that there were no weapons of mass destruction; no link between Saddam Hussein and the September 11 attacks in the United States, and no threat from Iraq to the United States. The Senate report omits pointing out one fact that he did not: Iraq is an oil-rich nation.

Indeed, this is the larger picture of what is plaguing us as a nation. Although this putrid, diabolical admin is at the helm of this criminal occcupation, the ever complicit and co-conspiratory CONGRESS is equally as dirty in this scheme of things, and THEY CONTINUE FUNDING IT! So what can they really say or do when it comes down to it? They ARE ALL guilty!

How the heck we are going to turn this absolute trainwreck of a government that is bursting at the seams with greed and power-mongering puppets of the corporations, M.I.C. and Private Bankers is beyond me.

One thing's for certain though, this entire establishment needs to be turned upside down, and start over from scratch, where the PEOPLE of this country and their views matter again, and not just the billionaire elitists with all of their criminal agendas and endless profiteering...

As it stands now, NO ONE will hold ANYONE accountable, because they are all in on these criminalistic profiteering ventures in one for or another! This is SO beyond wrong I can't even begin to find the words...



So what could the reaction be? The U.S. Senate has determined that the President of the United States used lies, scare tactics and chicanery to start a completely unnecessary war (what exactly constitutes a ‘necessary’ war is the topic for another discussion). The war has caused the deaths of over 4,000 Americans, and an estimated 1,000,000 Iraqi men, women and children; tens of thousands more have been maimed. It has cost billions upon billions of U.S. dollars at the same time that 47,000,000 Americans are without health care, 10% of the U.S. home-owning population is in danger of foreclosure and unemployment continues to increase. As the U.S. economy implodes, the money drain of Iraq continues.

Might there not be some response from Congress besides a few indignant statements? Is there any possibility that, even after Mr. Bush leaves office, some Congressional investigation into his behavior might be initiated? Is the concept of a president committing a crime and then being held accountable for it so foreign to Congress that it cannot fathom fulfilling its Constitutional duties? What about others at the highest levels of government that colluded with Mr. Bush to start the war? Are they to be allowed to retire from public life, write books and live off the proceeds of their crimes?
