  •  This may be a defining moment. (none)
    This is something any Republican with integrity -- and I refuse to believe there are none -- should be signing on to as well.  

    This is not a partisan issue -- or it should not be.  This goes to the most fundamental questions of how a democracy and a free society is run.  This goes to the most fundamental vision of the Founders, with regard to both the separation of powers, and the responsibilities of a government -- any government -- to those whom it governs.  This goes to the most fundamental vision or ourselves as moral human beings.  

    For if we as a nation are willing to countenance a war waged for convenience and based on deliberate deception, then in my opinion we have forfeited any claim to the titles of "patriot" and "American."

    And if this nation no longer has sufficient men and women from both parties who possess the sense, honor, integrity, and pride to act on the revelations in this memo, then truly there is not much hope for us.

    "...your grasp has exceded your reach/ And you put all your faith in a figure of speech..." -- Warren Zevon
