PART II - TERRORISM VS. THE WAR IN IRAQ

After 9/11, the President and his key advisors used a public relations campaign to allege that Iraq was linked to 9/11 and a threat to the U.S. because of its weapons of mass destruction. They presented selective intelligence, known to be inherently uncertain, as absolute fact. Since the President was not forthcoming with the public, our only line of defense was Congress and the media. Neither came to our rescue.

Another week has passed with most of the progressive community mesmerized by the political game playing in Washington. Don't we realize yet that a totally compromised political process in Washington, built around wheeling and dealing, will not have the courage or the consciousness to do what must be done to stop the Iraq War?

I watched your "60 Minutes" interview this evening with Elizabeth and John Edwards. I found you insensitive and judgmental, particularly toward Senator Edwards, whom you portrayed as uncaring and self-obsessed.

PART I - THE BEGINNING AND 9/11

Congress and the media had opportunities to prevent the war in Iraq, hold Bush accountable for a clear dereliction of duty before 9/11 and limit his incompetent administration to one term only. These two vital institutions have failed the American people. This article documents the damage done to the country and concludes with thoughts on how to repair our broken democracy. How things might be different today, if the American system had worked the way it should, is depicted in each part of the article.

Kind of reminds you of something Johnny Carson's 'Carnac The Magnificent' might say, placing a "hermetically sealed" envelope to his temple to channel the mysterious question inside. Carnac would repeat the phrase, rip the "hermetic" seal, blow into the envelope, repeat the phrase again, then reveal the inner query:

One argument I hear over and over when I talk about the need to impeach President Bush for high crimes against the Constitution is that it can never happen because "then we'd have Dick Cheney for president."

What a pathetic joke this nominally Democratic Congress has proven to be.

Despite polls showing 6 in 10 Americans want the U.S. out of Iraq ASAP, the best that this crew can come up with is a call - not binding, or course - for the president to pull out the troops by next spring or even summer. That would be over a year from now, and more than five years (!) into this criminal and incredibly stupid war.

I have about had it!

The Bush Criminal Mob is asking Congress for $123 billion more to fund their total demolition of Iraq and their future crime sprees in such places as Iran and perhaps Syria.

Linda Milazzo: Why I Love Elizabeth Edwards

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION

I love Elizabeth Edwards. Which is odd, since I've never met her.

When it comes to celebrity, I'm not much impressed. In fact, I find the whole concept of idolization abhorrent. More like insane. But when it comes to Elizabeth Edwards, I'll relinquish a bit of my 'sanity' and let awe take command over me.

Cindy Sheehan: White Hot Rage

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Cindy Sheehan

I have long suspected that Blackwater Security and L. Paul Bremer (what's his nickname? Scooter? Pookie?) were responsible for the insurgency in Iraq and subsequently the death of my son, Casey. I am reading Jeremy Scahill's new book: Blackwater and it is doing nothing to decrease my suspicions, only to confirm them.
