Bush MUST be STOPPED…
Posted by jeremiasx on July 20, 2007
We have moved PAST the ridiculous claims of executive “privilege” to a new level of authoritarianism in which the President of our country has issued a series of executive orders which have given broad and sweeping powers which could be construed as a legal means of JAILING war dissenters or at the very least taking their property…whether they be private citizens, the media, or even members of CONGRESS as the “Hillary warning” which was issued by the Pentagon most likely alludes to.
Under Secretary of Defense Eric Edelman wrote a biting reply to questions Clinton raised in May, urging the Pentagon to start planning now for the withdrawal of U.S. troops.
A copy of Edelman’s response, dated July 16, was obtained Thursday by The Associated Press.
“Premature and public discussion of the withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq reinforces enemy propaganda that the United States will abandon its allies in Iraq, much as we are perceived to have done in Vietnam, Lebanon and Somalia,” Edelman wrote.
Now if THIS executive order was prosecuted to the letter of the law…Hillary Clinton could be stripped of her assets for her questions regarding when we might possibly hope to extricate ourselves from the QUAGMIRE of civil war in Iraq. While most of us anti-Hillary folks would love to see her broke and perhaps bussing tables late night at a Denny’s… that’s not the point. If it poses a danger to Hillary, it might pose a danger to others.
NEXT POINT: PAY ATTENTION HERE
Bush’s administration NOW claims that their former aides who refuse to testify can not have contempt of Congress charges brought against them because the Executive “will not prosecute itself.”
So that’s a BLATANT slap in the face of everything we’ve EVER heard about “restoring integrity to the White House” and “Equal Justice Under Law.”
How much more RIDICULOUS does this situation need to get before this SOB is REMOVED FROM OFFICE???
