t r u t h o u t - Ted Kennedy | The President Should Be Held Accountable

Well what a surprise, another democrat wants to hold Bush to account for the war lies.
The question is will the democrats actually hold anyone to account. They have been pathetic supporters of this sick war of lies up till now.


t r u t h o u t - Ted Kennedy | The President Should Be Held Accountable: " The PentagonĀ¹s favorite Iraqi dissident, Ahmed Chalabi, is actually proud of what happened. 'We are heroes in error,' Chalabi said in February 2004. 'As far as we're concerned, we've been entirely successful. That tyrant Saddam is gone and the Americans are in Baghdad. What was said before is not important. The Bush Administration is looking for a scapegoat. We're ready to fall on our swords, if he wants.'

What was said before does matter. The President's words matter. The Vice President's words matter. So do those of the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Defense and other high officials in the Administration. And they did not square with the facts.

The Intelligence Committee agreed to investigate the clear discrepancies, and it's important that they get to the bottom of this, and find out how and why President Bush took America to war in Iraq. Americans are dying. Already more than 2000 have been killed, and more than 15,000 have been wounded.

The American people deserve the truth. It's time for the President to stop passing the buck and for him to be held accountable."
