General admits to secret air war....Gotta Love the Downing Street Memos!!

And....now we have a General admitting to a secret air war 9 months before the occupation of Iraq by chump and company.....

Where can I get tickets to the hangings??


"THE American general who commanded allied air forces during the Iraq war appears to have admitted in a briefing to American and British officers that coalition aircraft waged a secret air war against Iraq from the middle of 2002, nine months before the invasion began.

Addressing a briefing on lessons learnt from the Iraq war Lieutenant-General Michael Moseley said that in 2002 and early 2003 allied aircraft flew 21,736 sorties, dropping more than 600 bombs on 391 “carefully selected targets” before the war officially started.

The nine months of allied raids “laid the foundations” for the allied victory, Moseley said. They ensured that allied forces did not have to start the war with a protracted bombardment of Iraqi positions.

If those raids exceeded the need to maintain security in the no-fly zones of southern and northern Iraq, they would leave President George W Bush and Tony Blair vulnerable to allegations that they had acted illegally."

I don't think they will hang them. We should send them to Iraq or Afghanistan.

Can you say impeachment hearing. I mean Bill just lied about sex, this is much more serious.

NO ONE DIED WHEN CLINTION LIED.

Traditionally, conservative Presidents have it harder. But it is odd with Bush though. Bush is seen as a Christ-Figure. (I am not joking about this either.) They think he is infallible, they think he can do no wrong, just like Jesus.

Forgive me Jesus for equating you to such a devious dope.

Thank god people are starting to wake up to this stuff. This is definitely the bigger than the DSM story. What's it going to take for us to impeach these people?

If the DNC can take back the House in '06 then we can push Impeachment of Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld through.

If not, then we will have to continue the grass roots assault until even the RNC realizes they must impeach Bush.

"...even the RNC realizes they must impeach Bush."
what makes you say that? If they want to impeach him why are they putting up such a fight to protect him?
