Letter: Our leaders took an oath, have yet to live up to it


Ben Mills' use of 2-year-old Defense Department talking points in his letter in Monday's Daily Lobo still doesn't excuse the lies the United States government and its corporate media are still telling us about "the New Iraq." Iraq is a theocracy, not a democracy. This so-called war on terrorism seems a lot more like a war on freedom. The naive peace movement should realize that the Bush administration's exit strategy out of Iraq is through Syria and Iran and ending in Russia and China. The Department of Defense withdrawal plan from Iraq has been leaked, and consists of using air strikes instead of troops. We have been bombing Iraq with air strikes for 15 years, during and between both George Bush Iraq wars, killing at least hundreds of thousands of Iraqis. With few exceptions, there is no credibility left on either side of the aisle, Republican or Democrat. The time has come to invoke the 25th Amendment, install a caretaker government, put the present United States government and corporate media on trial for war crimes, and get some rope until we find some honest people who don't want to swing from lamp posts for lying to the American people. New Mexico Rep. Heather Wilson says that a House investigation into intelligence failures leading up to the war in Iraq would be a distraction. How much money has Heather Wilson received from Tom DeLay, Jack Abramoff and the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee? Ten days after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, President Bush was told in a highly classified briefing that the United States' intelligence community had no evidence linking the Iraqi regime of Saddam Hussein to the attacks.But the 2003 Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution states, "including those nations, organizations, or persons who planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on Sept. 11, 2001."Then George Bush flip-flopped again in 2004, saying, "We have no evidence that Saddam Hussein was involved with the Sept. 11 attacks."Our leaders took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution from enemies foreign and domestic. They didn't take an oath to protect and defend George Bush. The dishonorable Heather Wilson should step down and resign.

So when do we get invaded to remove the rogue government that spies on its own people, gases its own people during anti War protests, stages "terrorist" attacks, holds crooked elections, attacks other nations without cause, and uses torture on innocent people looking for WMD that don't exist?
