      "Here it is. The smoking gun. The memo that has, "IMPEACH HIM"
      written all over it.

      The top-level government memo marked "SECRET AND STRICTLY PERSONAL,"
      dated eight months before Bush sent us into Iraq, following a closed
      meeting with the President, reads, "Military action was now seen as
      inevitable. Bush wanted to remove Saddam through military action
      justified by the conjunction of terrorism and WDM. But the
      intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy."

      Read that again: "The intelligence and facts were being fixed...."

      For years, after each damning report on BBC TV, "Isn't this grounds
      for impeachment?" Vote rigging, a blind eye to terror and the bin
      Ladens before 9-11, and so on. Evil, stupidity and self-dealing are
      shameful but not impeachable. What's needed is a "high crime or
      misdemeanor."

      And if this ain't it, nothing is.

      The memo, uncovered this week by the Times, goes on to describe an
      elaborate plan by George Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair
      to hoodwink the planet into supporting an attack on Iraq knowing
      full well the evidence for war was a phony.

      A conspiracy to commit serial fraud is, under federal law,
      racketeering. However, the Mob's schemes never cost so many lives.

      Here's more. "Bush had made up his mind to take military action. But
      the case was thin. Saddam was not threatening his neighbors, and his
      WMD capability was less than that of Libya, North Korea or Iran."

      Really? But Mr. Bush told us, "Intelligence gathered by this and
      other governments leaves no doubt that the Iraq regime continues to
      possess and conceal some of the most lethal weapons ever devised."

      A month ago, the Silberman-Robb Commission issued its report on WMD
      intelligence before the war, dismissing claims that Bush fixed the
      facts with this snotty, condescending conclusion written directly to
      the President, "After a thorough review, the Commission found no
      indication that the Intelligence Community distorted the evidence
      regarding Iraq's weapons."

      We now know the report was a bogus 618 pages of thick whitewash
      aimed to let Bush off the hook for his murderous mendacity.

      Read on: The invasion build-up was then set, says the
      memo, "beginning 30 days before the US Congressional elections."
      Mission accomplished.

      You should parse the entire memo and see if you can make it through
      its three pages without losing your lunch.

      Now sharp readers may note they didn't see this memo, in fact,
      printed in the New York Times. It wasn't. Rather, it was splashed
      across the front pages of the Times of LONDON on Monday.

      It has effectively finished the last, sorry remnants of Tony Blair's
      political career. (While his Labor Party will most assuredly win the
      elections today, Prime Minister Blair is expected, possibly within
      months, to be shoved overboard in favor of his Chancellor of the
      Exchequer, a political execution which requires only a vote of the
      Labour party's members in Parliament.)

      But in the US, barely a word. The New York Times covers this hard
      evidence of Bush's fabrication of a causus belli as some "British"
      elections story. Apparently, our President's fraud isn't "news fit
      to print."

      My colleagues in the UK press have skewered Blair, digging out more
      incriminating memos, challenging the official government factoids
      and fibs. But in the US press ...nada, bubkiss, zilch. Bush fixed
      the facts and somehow that's a story for "over there."

      The Republicans impeached Bill Clinton over his cigar and Monica's
      affections. And the US media could print nothing else.

      Now, we have the stone, cold evidence of bending intelligence to
      sell us on death by the thousands, and neither a Republican Congress
      nor what is laughably called US journalism thought it not worth a
      second look.

      My friend Daniel Ellsberg once said that what's good about the
      American people is that you have to lie to them. What's bad about
      Americans is that it's so easy to do."
