There were no terrorists in Iraq to go to war AGAINST, except ones the Bush and Cheney themselves elevated by their reckless occupation. And continuing the occupation there will just breed two more local insurgents for every one they pick off in a photo-op bombing.
It's time for Congress to fufill the promise of the November elections to stop the war in Iraq, and the only assurance we have that they will actually do that is if we CONTINUE to call and write them, again and again, until they finally realize we in fact expect them to do it.

IT'S TIME TO IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT
The repeated violations of high crimes and misdemeanors by the President and Vice President has prompted me to recommend to our Representative Sue Myrick and our Senators Elizabeth Dole and Richard Burr to join other members of the Congress of the United States of America to bring articles of impeachment against President George W. Bush and Vice President Richard B. Cheney.
The Downing Street memo proves both the President and Vice President knowingly participated in the deception of Congress, the deception of the American people as well as the deception of the entire world in order to send our sons and daughters into war. They have violated international treaty obligations under the United Nations Charter and the Geneva Conventions, which outlaw torture of prisoners of war. The President and Vice President authorized wiretapping of hundreds of thousands of Americans, in violation of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).
The Constitution and Bill of Rights have been plundered. The President and Vice President have disregarded the 1st Amendment to the Constitution when they have put civil rights groups and peace activists on terrorist watch lists in an effort to silence them. They have violated American citizens' 4th Amendment rights when they illegally searched and or seized evidence, and they have violated the 14th Amendment of the Constitution when they have denied the right to due process to Americans being held without charges of a crime, without counsel and without phone calls or contact with their families.
As a matter of constitutional law, the President and Vice President have committed high crimes and misdemeanors, which is the standard for impeachment and removal from office. Until we impeach President Bush and Vice President Cheney nothing will change. Please join me in sending our Representative and Senators the message that we want the President and Vice President impeached.
