Truth to Power

From a Congressman, no less

From one of the few sane people on Capital hill, Ron Paul from Texas:

Who’s Better Off?

Rep. Ron Paul

The information Congress was given prior to the war was false. There were no weapons of mass destruction; the Iraqis did not participate in the 9/11 attacks; Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein were enemies and did not conspire against the United States; our security was not threatened; we were not welcomed by cheering Iraqi crowds as we were told; and Iraqi oil has not paid any of the bills. Congress failed to declare war, but instead passed a wishy-washy resolution citing UN resolutions as justification for our invasion.

Good stuff, but until someone such as Paul or Robert Byrd begin making noises toward impeachment, Bush and his minions are going to keep rolling blissfully along, as if no countervoices exist. Right into Iran, Syria, South America, etc…
