‘War on Terror’ II

Julien Sanchez | full article at The Nation | 10/19/09

“The Obama administration makes vague, reassuring noises about constraining executive power and protecting civil liberties, but then merrily adopts whatever appalling policy George W. Bush put in place. “

NYT condemns what it calls “Obama’s cover-up”

Glenn Greenwald | complete article @ salon.com | 10/26/09

As suggested by the editorial’s headline — “The Cover-Up Continues” — the NYT accuses Obama of complicity in shielding Bush war crimes from disclosure and accountability, and worse, details the numerous, radical Bush/Cheney powers embraced by Obama in order to accomplish this.

Bush Insider Who Planned To Tell All Killed In Plane Crash: Non-Profit Demands Full Federal Investigation

UPDATE to Ohio ’00 and 04 Election Fraud Case: VIDEO: Scenes From Outside the Stunning Deposition of FBI Whistleblower Sibel Edmonds

12/20/08 | Velvetrevolution.us

Michael Connell, the Bush IT expert who has been directly implicated in the rigging of George Bush’s 2000 and 2004 elections, was killed last night when his single engine plane crashed three miles short of the Akron airport.  Velvet Revolution (“VR”), a non-profit that has been investigating Mr. Connell’s activities for the past two years, can now reveal that a person close to Mr. Connell has recently been discussing with a VR investigator how to tell all about his work for George Bush.  Mr. Connell told a  close associate that he was afraid that the George Bush and Dick Cheney would “throw [him] under the bus.”

The Way Forward on Holding the Bush/Cheney Administration Accountable

“While both men are clearly guilty of war crimes, and have in fact admitted to willful violation of international law and the US Criminal Code relating to torture and treatment of captives, and while Bush has admitted to the felony of willfully violating the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), and while a good case of defrauding Congress could be made against both men with regard to their claims made to justify the invasion of Iraq, not to mention a host of other crimes large and small, I think it is clear that the new administration of President Barack Obama does not want to be seen trying to put the president and vice president in the slammer (where they so deserve to be). For better or worse, Obama has decided to pursue a less confrontational politics in Washington.

That said, I would argue that there can be a good case made, both legally and politically, for the convening of a Truth & Reconciliation Commission, which could put all key people in the last administration on the stand and under oath and klieg lights to explain just what they did and why.”

“Other political officials also indicted.

Raymondville – District Attorney Juan Guerra has brought indictments against several key political officials.

The indictments have not been made public, but NEWSCHANNEL 5 has learned Vice President Dick Cheney, former Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez, Texas State Senator Eddie Lucio Junio, Judge Migdalia Lopez, Judge Janet Leal, and Willacy County District Clerk Gilbert Lozano were among those indicted.

Some of the attorneys involved say they plan to file motions to quash the indictments.”

Congress Must Debate The Implications Of A Bush Self-Pardon

Many people have been asking us, “Could Bush actually pardon
himself?”. Would it be despicable? Sure it would. Would it be
shameless and cowardly? Yes, that and that too. But all those
adjectives fit Bush like O.J.’s glove before it shrunk from being
soaked completely in blood. Which means he is absolutely is planning
on doing it.

And only impeachment could stop it. We need to talk about this. We
need Congress to talk about this. And Congress is in session this
week, so we need you to speak out this week while there is still
time.

Impeach Now Action Page: http://www.usalone.com/impeach_now.php

Tens of thousands of you submitted the action page on this last week.
Do it again. Please speak out again while we still can. There is
already a drum beat in the right wing media calling on Bush to pardon
his whole administration. Only our voices can raise the price of such
action so that there would be real consequences.

We have not given up, and will never give up hope on justice. We will
be taking delivery of another huge shipment of the “Impeach Both!!!”
caps that are still so popular. But this might be the last batch. So
if you want to demonstrate your support for impeachment, please
request yours now from the return page of the action page submission.

Impeach Now Action Page: http://www.usalone.com/impeach_now.php

Will Congress now act? That is not the yardstick of the worth of our
activism. We speak out because we must speak out, whether we are
heeded or not. Let history record that we spoke out until the last
minute to the eternal shame of those who did not. Because when enough
of us speak out at once, the worst thing that can possibly happen is
that we are building the progressive base for the REAL change of the
future.

So Bush most certainly is planning on pardoning himself. And all the
right wing lock down ideologues in the corporate controlled media
will call it “healing”. Let’s all make nice with war criminals? Shall
we all make nice with the gang rape of our economy, our environment
and our Constitution? We think not.

And one more thing. You know that come January 20th the right wing
will start calling for the impeachment of our new president, over a
endless litany of the most ridiculous of trivial trifles. In fact it
has already started even though he has not even taken office. If they
are so hot on impeaching someone, let them speak out now, when it
truly is called for, or shut the hell up in 65 days.

Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed
to be ours, and forward this alert as widely as possible.
