The purpose of these hearings will be to gather testimony and documents that will prove that Bush, Cheney and Rice were involved in a conspiracy to provide fraudulent information to the US Congress in order to get an authorization for war. Even the Republican majority leader at the time, Dick Armey, has said that he believes this is what Bush did, and he now says that vote was the one he is truly ashamed of. Powell knows it, and he will be called to tesitfy under oath, and he will tell the specifics of the fraud. Most specifically, it is the evidence that claimed to show that Saddam was building nukes, which was essentially falsified by these three people. Most congressman have said it was the nuke question that swayed the vote. Murtha is going to bust them on that. Once the evidence is clear that Bush, Rice and Cheney defrauded this country into war, then we will simply see if the public wants impeachment. Let it be pushed from them, instead of down their throats the way the Repigs did it to Clinton. The families of the dead will lead the charge.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
