Lies and the Lying Liars ...

Nancy Pelosi took impeachment off the table shortly after her election as Speaker of the House. Is time for her to put it back on? Politico's Mike Allen has an interesting write up of Ron Suskind's new book.

Suskind writes in The Way of the World, to be published Tuesday,
that the alleged forgery – adamantly denied by the White House – was designed to
portray a false link between Hussein’s regime and al Qaeda as a justification
for the Iraq war.
author also claims that the Bush administration had information from a top Iraqi
intelligence official “that there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq –
intelligence they received in plenty of time to stop an invasion."

Holy Flying Spaghetti Monster! Isn't that enough to get Bush and Cheney perp walked out of the White House for a quick flight to Leavenworth? Four thousand plus dead Americans, score of thousands of dead Iraqis, and we still can't charge them as War Criminals?

Suskind's book is intriguing and I am swinging by Borders to pick up a copy today. More later.
