Republicans insisted on spending $70 million of your money investigating Whitewater during the Clinton presidency. After seven years, no indictments were returned against either President or Mrs. Clinton. That's right, no convictions resulted from the "investigation." What did Ken Starr net? A sleazy affair, taped conversations, a blue dress, and a book of poetry. He also nearly destroyed one family, and brought the nation's business to a standstill.
All that over a business deal gone bad.
Now there's real evidence that President Bush lied to the nation when he led us to war. Remember during the Whitewater scandal, when it came out that President Clinton lied about his affair with Monica Lewinsky? Lots of us said, "But it's not like he lied about our nation's security."
George Bush did. Repeatedly.
AfterDowningStreet.org is urging an investigation into the matter of the Downing Street memo, the document from Tony Blair's office that indicates the Bush administration had no intention of negotiating with Saddam Hussein. War was their goal, regardless of the lack of any incriminating evidence.
In support of AfterDowningStreet, Shakespeare's Sister is organizing the Big Brass Alliance to give further voice to the affair.
Join the Alliance. Support AfterDowningStreet. Post the info on your blog; send an email to your friends. Tell your friends and neighbors that Bush lied and people died. Tell the media. Tell the authorities. Tell Ken Starr.
Because this time, it was the world that got screwed.
