Conyers: These Are Not Impeachment Hearings

George Washington’s Blog
July 23, 2008

John Conyers is now taking the position that no one at Friday’s impeachment hearing can accuse Bush or Cheney of any crime, or any impeachable offense, or dishonorable conduct, or even lying.

Moreover, Conyers is now saying that he will shut the hearing down if anyone does accuse the boys of crimes, impeachable offenses, or otherwise being naughty.

As David Swanson summarizes it:

“Apparently the rules of Congress are designed to allow impeachable offenses to be discussed only in impeachment hearings. Apparently this didn’t occur to Chairman Conyers when he decided to hold a non-impeachment impeachment hearing. As a result, his hearing may be quickly shut down, and he will have a choice of holding a real impeachment hearing, resigning, or dropping the pretense that he intends to resist Cheney and Bush in any way whatsoever.”

Please watch this must-see 10 minute video.

Australian troops pull out of Iraq

Australian troops pull out of Iraq

About 500 Australian combat troops pulled out of their base in southern Iraq on Sunday, fulfilling an election promise by Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd to bring the soldiers home this year.

A British military spokesman in the southern city of Basra said the pullout from Talil base in Nassiriya was under way, but a spokesman for the governor of Dhi Qar province said it had been completed, with U.S. forces replacing the Australians.

“The Australian battle group is pulling out,” the British military spokesman said.

Australia, a staunch U.S. ally, was one of the first countries to commit troops to the Iraq war. In addition to the combat troops, it also deployed aircraft and warships to the Gulf to protect Iraq’s offshore oil platforms.

Since handing over security of Dhi Qar province to the Iraqis, the main role of the Australian battle group, numbering about 515 soldiers, has been to train and support Iraqi forces.

Rudd, who won elections last November, had promised to bring home frontline troops this year. Polls show 80 percent of Australians oppose the war.

 

Bush links Iraq, Afghan wars to WWII

Press TV
May 28, 2008

US President George W. Bush has linked the Iraq and Afghanistan wars to World War II asking the country for postwar rebuilding.

In a prepared address for Wednesday to more than 1,000 graduates of the US Air Force Academy, released by the White House, Bush framed the graduates’ future to the World War II generation and the Iraq and Afghanistan wars to postwar Germany and Japan six decades ago.

Bush said, “After World War II, we helped Germany and Japan build free societies and strong economies. These efforts took time and patience, and as a result Germany and Japan grew in freedom and prosperity and are now allies of the United States.”

He added, “Today we must do the same in Afghanistan and Iraq and by helping these young democracies grow in freedom and prosperity we will once again reap the benefits in generations of security and peace.”

Meanwhile, the country is still in debate over whether the Iraq war has bolstered the US security or weakened it.
