Back to the Peach

A juicy quote from today's post over at “El Pais has published a transcript of a conversation between George W. Bush, Jose Maria Aznar of Spain, and Condoleeza Rice held at Crawford before the Iraq War… it provides a whole rack of smoking guns that could be a basis for impeaching George W. Bush... The transcript shows that Bush consciously intended to go to war without a United Nations Security Council resolution… Bush could have sent Saddam off to exile in Saudi Arabia and avoided the whole war, but refused to do so because of the family vendetta between the Bushes and the Tikritis. Nearly 4,000 US soldiers have died and thousands have been wounded because Bush would not take the deal Saddam offered him. Hundreds of thousands of Iraqis are dead, and millions displaced. Going to war unnecessarily is an impeachable offense. The whole immense catastrophe could have been avoided.”

Where are the real statesmen we so desperately need to hold the Bushites accountable for this "immense catastrophe?"
