Case Against Bush

Rioting in Jalalabad over Newsweek report on "desecration" of Koran at Guantanamo prison camp, and American official insisting that American policy is to respect *all* religions. But witness Lt. General William G. "Jerry" Boykin. CNN: "Discussing a U.S. Army battle against a Muslim warlord in Somalia in 1993, Boykin told one audience, "I knew my god was bigger than his. I knew that my god was a real god and his was an idol."" According to, Boykin told a church gathering in Oregon last year, "Enemies like Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein "will only be defeated if we come against them in the name of Jesus." Seymour Hersh is said to have uncovered, in the latest issue of the New Yorker, the significant role played by Boykin in setting policy at U.S. military camps. (Boykin has been serving as Stephen Cambone's Undersecretary of Defence at the Defence Intelligence Agency.)

From Ray McGovern in May 5th, "Proof Bush Fixed the Facts", based on minutes leaked to London's Sunday Times of briefing by Richard Dearlove, then head of Britain's MI-6. On July 23, 2002, Dearlove briefed Blair and other top security officials on Bush's plans to invade Iraq. Per McGovern, US-UK propaganda included:

  • Aluminum artillery tubes misdiagnosed as nuclear related
  • Forgeries alleging Iraqi attempts to obtain "yellow cake" uranium in Africa
  • Tall tales from a drunken defector about mobile biological weapons labs
  • Bogus warnings that Iraqi forces could fire WMD-tipped missiles launched within 45 minutes
There seem to be several web sites devoted to the idea of impeaching Bush, e.g.; and a draft impeachment by Francis Boyle, professor of law at University of Illinois; and a draft letter one could revise and send to one's U.S. representatives.
