Perhaps those Idahoans who are sure all accusations against Bushco originate with the evil liberal media will tell me. Where are they?
Democrats on the House Judicial Committee issued the final version of their report, “Constitution in Crisis,” the first week in August. But because there was no coverage by major dailies and no network news coverage other than a brief mention by Jack Cafferty, I wonder; is it possible that the “liberal media” is yet another fiction created by the great GOP bubble machine?
The report outlines possible violations of over 20 federal laws/regulations by Bushco, some repeatedly. It is a meticulously documented report that includes legal analysis, relevant laws and key documents and can be found at: http://www.house.gov/judiciary_democrats/iraqrept.html
The report offers “detailed factual findings” on: “Determination to go to War Before Congressional Authorization; Misstating and Manipulating the Intelligence to Justify Pre-emptive War; Encouraging and Countenancing Torture and Cruel, Inhuman and Degrading Treatment; Cover-ups and Retribution; and Thwarting Congress and the American Public.” I just love the way they say “misstating and manipulating intelligence.” In Kindergarten, we called it lying.
Reporter Justin Rood asked Rep. John Conyers, ranking Dem, why he produced the report.
Conyers answered, "We could get no response from the president...then we tried to get hearings in the Judiciary Committee," which met with a "no way" response. "Every sentence, every allegation, every accusation that we have in this 371-page report has a citation or a reference to it of where we got it.”
As soon as I find that liberal media, wow, are they ever gonna love spreading this one!
