From The Kansas City Star:
WASHINGTON – (KRT) – A hearing Thursday on a secret British intelligence memo that said President Bush was committed to waging war on Iraq months before he said so publicly ended with a request for Congress to open an inquiry into whether Bush should be impeached for misleading the nation.
Pinch me, I must be asleep.
And from the Independent (UK):
As American and Iraqi casualties on the ground mount relentlessly, President George Bush is in growing political trouble, with Republicans as well as Democrats questioning his handling of a war that has never been less popular here.
See, it’s not just the Democrats just trying to cause trouble, folks. Even some Republicans can’t put up with Bush’s lies any longer.
More worrying for the White House, another sponsor is the North Carolina Republican Walter Jones, a strong backer of the invasion (and an author of the 2003 “freedom fries” campaign against France in Capitol Hill cafeterias).
Now if that isn’t irony, I don’t know what is.
In June 2002, a month before the British memo was written, 61 per cent of Americans favoured the forcible removal of Saddam Hussein, as the next stage of Mr Bush’s “war on terror”. Today, polls show that only 42 per cent say the war was worthwhile.
As I’ve said before, most Americans have trouble thinking for themselves.
