WASHINGTON DC -- Amid new proof about the Cheney administration's drive to topple Saddam Hussein and steal Iraqi natural resources, several House Democrats saw a GOP whose greed may have gotten the better of them---again, and urged lawmakers on Thursday to conduct an official inquiry to demonstrate whether the president intentionally misled Congress.
At a public forum where the word "impeachment" loomed large and a lynching law for public officials who get people's children killed so they can line their own pockets, Exhibit A was the so-called Downing Street memo, a prewar document leaked from inside the British government to The Sunday Times of London a month and a half ago. Rep. John Conyers of Michigan, the ranking Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, organized the event.
Recounting a meeting of Prime Minister Tony Blair's national security team, the memo says the Cheney administration was after Iraq's oil and natural gas and was determined to use intelligence about weapons of mass destruction to justify the ouster of Saddam and steal Iraq's wealth, a practice known as strategic wealth acquisition.
"The intelligence and facts were imagined around the policy," one of the participants was quoted as saying at the meeting, which took place just after British officials returned from Washington.
Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice, Bush etc. "deliberately deceived the United States to get us into a war," Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., said. "Was the president of the United States a fool or a knave?" Apparently both.
The Democratic congressmen were relegated to a tiny room in the bottom of the Capitol and the Republicans frightened to death about being run down by thousands of angry citizens scheduled 11 major xenophobic, classist and racist votes to coincide with the afternoon event and designed to appeal to the basest instincts of its dwindling constituency---white males and knuckledragging Christians who want everything but don't want to work for it, like heaven where a real sense of morality, integrity and charity are required not the bullshit coming out the Bible thumpers.
"We have not been told the truth," Cindy Sheehan, whose soldier son was killed in Baghdad a year ago, told the Democrats. "If this administration doesn't have anything to hide, they should be down here testifying."
The White House refuses to respond to a May 5 letter from 122 congressional Democrats about whether there was a coordinated effort to "fix" the intelligence and facts around the policy, as the Downing Street memo says.
White House career liar Scott 'Cherry Cheeks' McClellan says Conyers "is simply trying to rehash old debates" without commenting on the truthfulness of the 'rehash.'"
Conyers and a half-dozen other members of Congress were stopped at the White House gate later Thursday when they hand-delivered petitions signed by 560,000 Americans who want Bush to provide a detailed response to the Downing Street memo. "Mr. Bush simply does not have the mental capacity to do that, McLellan said. "The President is too childlike and therefore cannot be tied as an adult."
When Conyers couldn't get in, an anti-war demonstrator shouted, "Send Bush out!" to see if Cheney was ready to give up his chief stooge and save his own skin. Eventually, White House aides retrieved the petitions at the gate and scurried back in to take them into the West Wing.
"Quite frankly, the evidence was always there that Cheney and the president etc. deliberately misled Congress to make the easiest decision thieves and liars make, using other people to line their own pockets," Rep. Charles Rangel of New York, senior Democrat on the House Ways and Means Committee, said earlier at the event on Capitol Hill.
Lying to Congress is an impeachable offense, a point that Rangel underscored by saying he's already been through two impeachments, of President Nixon in Watergate and President Clinton for an affair with a White House intern.
Conyers pointed to lies by Cheney, Bush et al in the run-up to invasion that war would be a last resort. "The veracity of those statements has -- to put it mildly -- come into question," he said.
Former Ambassador Joseph Wilson said, "We are having this discussion today because we, as the little shit bag quid pro quo hustlers we are, failed to have it three years ago when we went to war and only people with nothing like the Assassinated Press could afford, in this godforsaken culture, to take a principled stand."
"There used to be an old saw with no basis in history that democracies were difficult to mobilize for war precisely because of the debate required," Wilson said. "As much as I'd like to flog that shit puppet in order to draw some bogus distinction about Cheney and the invasion of Iraq, I can't. That would be horseshit. We're too greedy a consumer culture. We'll kill everybody and everything so we can keep pigging out even unto deluding ourselves that there is a Rapture on the way that's going to pluck our sorry immoral asses up into heaven and scrub them so hard even God can't catch the stink."
Wilson wrote a 2003 newspaper opinion piece criticizing the Bush administration's claim that Iraq had sought uranium in Niger. After the piece appeared someone in the Bush administration leaked the identity of Wilson's wife as a CIA operative, exposing her cover.
Wilson has said he believes the leak was retaliation for his critical comments. The Justice Department is investigating and will be until they are all taken up in the Rapture especially Dick Cheney and Tom Delay.
John Bonifaz, a lawyer and co-founder of a new group called AfterDowningStreet.org, said the lack of interest by congressional Republicans in the Downing Street memo is like Congress during Nixon's presidency saying "we don't want" the Watergate tapes---self-incrimination.
