And this will make it that much more disgusting when congress and Pelosi decide to ignore the law, the constitution and the will of the people, and continue to give these guys a free pass.

Congress has sat back and watched everything happen.

And how do you explain that the charge of WMD's came from administrations prior to GWB's? The Clintonistas often accused Saddam of having WMD's.
How did Iraq get its weapons? We sold them
THE US and Britain sold Saddam Hussein the technology and materials Iraq needed to develop nuclear, chemical and biological weapons of mass destruction.
Reports by the US Senate's committee on banking, housing and urban affairs - which oversees American exports policy - reveal that the US, under the successive administrations of Ronald Reagan and George Bush Snr, sold materials including anthrax, VX nerve gas, West Nile fever germs and botulism to Iraq right up until March 1992, as well as germs similar to tuberculosis and pneumonia. Other bacteria sold included brucella melitensis, which damages major organs, and clostridium perfringens, which causes gas gangrene.
Classified US Defence Dep-artment documents also seen by the Sunday Herald show that Britain sold Iraq the drug pralidoxine, an antidote to nerve gas, in March 1992, after the end of the Gulf war. Pralidoxine can be reverse engineered to create nerve gas.
The Senate committee's reports on "US Chemical and Biological Warfare-Related Dual-Use Exports to Iraq", undertaken in 1992 in the wake of the Gulf war, give the date and destination of all US exports. The reports show, for example, that on May 2, 1986, two batches of bacillus anthracis - the micro-organism that causes anthrax - were shipped to the Iraqi Ministry of Higher Education, along with two batches of the bacterium clostridium botulinum, the agent that causes deadly botulism poisoning.
One batch each of salmonella and E coli were shipped to the Iraqi State Company for Drug Industries on August 31, 1987. Other shipments went from the US to the Iraq Atomic Energy Commission on July 11, 1988; the Department of Biology at the University of Basrah in November 1989; the Department of Microbiology at Baghdad University in June 1985; the Ministry of Health in April 1985 and Officers' City, a military complex in Baghdad, in March and April 1986.
The shipments to Iraq went on even after Saddam Hussein ordered the gassing of the Kurdish town of Halabja, in which at least 5000 men, women and children died. The atrocity, which shocked the world, took place in March 1988, but a month later the components and materials of weapons of mass destruction were continuing to arrive in Baghdad from the US.

SHARE & DIGG THIS VIDEO - LET THE WORLD KNOW WHAT THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA IS BEING PAID TO NOT COVER - TO IT'S OWN PEOPLE!
Vincent Bugliosi is heard by Congressman John Conyers, Chairman House Judiciary Committee
Inquiry Hearing on Articles of Impeachment
Former L.A. County Prosecutor, Vincent Bugliosi and author of "The Prosecution of George W. Bush For Murder", which details prosecutable evidence of murder by George Bush and Dick Cheney and others.
George W Bush knew and purposely lied to America and mislead The Congress
about "Saddam Hussein NOT being an IMMINENT threat to the United States by deleting that critical sentence in a declassified report (The White Papers) by his own Intelligence Advisors in order to start the War with Iraq.
And the SAME PATTERN IS BEING PLAYED NOW regarding IRAN. This "President" NEEDS TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE!
In his book, Bugliosi says he has irrefutible proof to convict both George W Bush and Dick Cheney for 1st Degree Murder, a crime for which there is NO Statute of Limitations. Bugliosi is best known for his successful 1970 prosecution of Charles Manson.
Main Stream Media is not covering this Historic Event, brought by the moving papers of Articles of Impeachment, authored by Congressman Dennis Kucinich, (D) Ohio and former presidential candidate.
CSPAN 1 is the only network covering this Hearing gavel to gavel.

Bugliosi's remarks are incredibly offensive. Murder is when you intentionally kill someone. Bush killed 4,000 US troops intentionally? Bush personally gave the go-ahead for 4,000 troop deaths?
All those on this thread who have posted positive remarks about this should either present even the smallest shred of evidence that Bush personally gave the go-ahead for 4,000 US troop deaths or apologize for supporting slander.
I quite seriously do not know any reason at all Bush would want more US troops dead.
