Contempt Vote Upcoming on Iraq War Lies

Posted in H.L. News, Videos on February 14th, 2008 12:13 pm by HL

Condi Rice was confronted once again by Rep. Wexler on the lies the administration told to get us into iraq. Congress is prepared to vote on comtempt charges against Bush council Harriet Miers and former chief of staff Josh Bolten. Will Congress continue to persue this even after Bush is out of office, or will they just give him a free pass, as Nancy Pelosi wants so badly.

    As much as I do support this weak Congressional effort, I feel it is important to remember that the current common mythology that says that we were all lied to and couldn’t have known any better (part of Hillary’s argument of why she voted to give Bush the authority for war in Iraq)belies the fact that many of us never drank the Kool-Aid, never bought into the bogus lies used by Bush/Cheney/Neocons to invent a war in Iraq. Moreover, 23 members of the U.S. Senate voted against giving Bush the authority for war in Iraq. Senator Clinton could have made that 24 at the time (as Edwards could have also). At least Edwards honestly admitted his mistake early on and put much effort into trying to end the Iraq war. This issue is central to why I voted for Senator Obama and why I cannot support Senator Clinton if she gets the nomination. She is Bush-lite and her foreign policy will be similar to his, which for me is morally and ethically corrupt in the extreme. Footnote: I do think that Barbara Boxer would make an excellent choice for a running mate on an Obama ticket. Senator Boxer has demonstrated high ethical standards in decision making time and again. That’s the view tonight from Okie Flats, anyhow. For those of you who don’t know where Okie Flats is located, it is a mythical suburban area of Oklahoma City. Never been to Oklahoma? Just close your eyes and imagine Kansas, without the glamour.
    And yes, even here in one of the reddest of red states, a scattering of liberal progressives survives the culture here.
