This morning's Senate speech by Sen. Ted Kennedy was the best catalog yet of the administration's calculated lies to convince people and the Congress to go to war with Iraq because the threat was IMMINENT.
It was stunning!

Even though I've heard most of the statements before, the gravity, the emphasis on urgency
, and the sheer number of quotes gave it all a remarkable punch. Sen. Warner afterwards seemed depressed as all get out as he tried to go about business as usual.
Kennedy gave quote after quote about the "URGENT" threat of Iraq! All of the gang of five: Bush~Cheney~Rice~Powell~Rumsfeld. All sold the idea of urgency while often denying this later.
Ted Kennedy correctly told us what would happen if we went to war with Iraq and even spoke about smearing critics! He spoke at Brookings in /April of 2004:
"This is the pattern and the record of the Bush Administration. Iraq. Jobs. Medicare. Schools. Issue after issue. Mislead. Deceive. Make up the needed facts. Smear the character of any critic. Again and again and again, we see this cynical and despicable strategy playing out. It is undermining our national security, undermining our economy, undermining our health care, undermining our schools, undermining public trust in government, undermining our very democracy. We need a change. November can't come too soon. "
It's not new here to talk about impeachment, but with the added IMMINENCE quotient, it seems even more appropriate an action. Can people tell me why this is not treason?
Not an impeachable offense?
