BUSH: INDICTABLE CO-CONSPIRATOR?
“The White House Criminal Conspiracy” [Nov. 14] by Elizabeth de la Vega is by far the best compilation of the case for the impeachment of George W. Bush I’ve seen. I can only hope that our legislators read it and act on it. De la Vega is to be commended.

Elizabeth de la Vega’s article should be required reading by all members of Congress and the mainstream media.

Elizabeth de la Vega must be smoking crack. If you have to run such articles to sell the magazine to your core audience, great, but if they believe it they must be retarded.
My 20-year-old son, a reservist with the National Guard, is currently serving in Baghdad. Counselor de la Vega confirms what my professional criminal justice experience and education have led me to believe–that is, there are reasons beyond measure to accuse this cabal of crimes under our laws.
People are inclined to think I am against this war because my son is in it. They could not be more wrong. My son is a soldier, and I am proud of him and his commitment. However, my commitment is to value his life, as well as all our soldiers’ lives, and my country. Taking this country to war based on fabricated evidence, forged documents and illegitimate intelligence is worthy of careful examination. Our country is on a slippery slope. I hope we can catch it before it falls and the rule of law as we knew it in America is gone forever.

I fear that as a prosecutor, Elizabeth de la Vega may have “undercharged” the defendants. This was not just some “third rate” attempt to criminally affect a national election (though they’re guilty of that, too), or some underhanded money laundering of legitimate defense funds to finance illegal military escapades (though, again…). They said we should fear “mushroom clouds…in forty-five minutes.” (Read it again.) This is called “terrorism”–in the form of a bomb threat.
Another charge can be added to the case for impeachment. The United Nations was formed to protect the world against aggressive warfare. The United States led the development of the UN and was a principal signer of the UN Charter. Section VI of the Constitution states that treaties the United States signs are the law of the land. By ordering US forces to attack Iraq contrary to the expressed agreement of the Security Council, George W. Bush violated the UN Charter and, therefore, the laws of the United States.
