Bush's Fake Letter, An Impeachable Offense?

If it's true, it should be.

A blockbuster new book from investigative journalist Ron Suskind adds another revelation to the growing canon demonstrating the lengths to which President Bush and members of his administration lied, misled and deceived the American people to pursue its invasion of Iraq.

Bush allegedly ordered the CIA to forge a handwritten letter from the head of Iraq's intelligence service to Saddam Hussein that purported to link the Iraqi dictator to the ringleader of the hijackers who toppled the Twin Towers on 9/11, according to news accounts of Suskind's new book, The Way of the World: A Story of Truth and Hope in an Age of Extremism. Such use of an intelligence service to influence domestic political debate could be an impeachable offense, Suskind writes.

  1. Almost a year ago, Sidney Blumenthal revealed that President Bush was briefed on September 18, 2002 by CIA director George Tenet, who told him Iraq had no weapons of mass destruction.

    More than two years ago, CBS "60 Minutes" interviewed Tyler Drumheller, the former CIA chief of clandestine operations for Europe, who disclosed that the agency had received documentary intelligence from Naji Sabri, Saddam's foreign minister, that Saddam did not have WMD.

    Suskind can add his new evidence to the ever-growing stack of proof that Bush lied, and tried to cover it up.
