US Knew All Along: Trailers Were NOT Bioweapons Labs

How much more evidence to we need? Every time I turn around, it seems there's another revelation about lies told to the American public by this corrupt and incompetent administration. Now, the Washington Post reports that the government knew all along that those two trailers it found in Iraq, and used to belatedly justify the invasion, had nothing to do with biological weapons production.

If ever there was an argument to be made for a parliamentary style of government, where a crisis forces new elections, it would be this administration. With its lies, its finger pointing, its illegal and thuggish tactics (can you say "Valerie Plame"? It seems that GWB can and did when he gave the authorization to blow her cover, according to Scooter Libby), and its very scary politics, this administration has been an ethical and moral disgrace from the get-go.

What kind of scary politics?
  • Going to war without justification
  • Stonewalling the 9/11 Commission
  • Rushing through legislation, like the Patriot Act, that is a direct threat to freedom and democracy
  • Illegally spying on its own citizens, and then trying to make it legal after the fact when it got caught
  • Overturning so much of the progress made on environmental and social issues over the past fifty years
  • Oh, and let's not forget the deliberate decisions to let New Orleaneans face their flooding city without meaningful assistance, and then to repeatedly deny that they had days of warning and chose to do nothing

  • And we won't even discuss the whole passel of personal enrichment scandals that taint so many Bush allies

    Enough is enough, already. We don't have a parliamentary democracy here--but we do have an impeachment process. It is time to impeach both GWB and Cheney.
