Kucinich Moves to Impeach Bush

Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) has introduced 35 articles of impeachment George W. Bush. At the top of a list of 'impeachable offenses' is "Article I: Creating a secret propaganda campaign to manufacture a false case for war against Iraq."

Kucinich and others, including Rep. Robert Wexler (D-Fla.), argue that Bush and Cheney have lied to the Congress and the American people about the reasons for invading Iraq.

The case made was, in fact, a deliberate fraud, an elaborate conspiracy inside the White House to fabricate evidence against Saddam Hussein. This impeachable offense in itself enabled the commission of war crimes that are punishable by death under US Codes, Title 18, Section 2441. That Bush has tried repeatedly to make his actions legal --but only after he had already committed the crime --is evidence in itself that should be made against him when he is impeached and, later, when he is tried for capital crimes. I would add that the entire 'war on terrorism' is, likewise, a criminal fraud for which Bush, Cheney and most high ranking members of his administration are culpable.
