Today's mash note to Madam Speaker:
I am writing once again to urge you to reconsider the impeachment of President Bush and Vice President Cheney.
The administration is serious about a possible military strike against Iran. Sources at the CIA are reporting the administration is once again playing fast and loose with the National Intelligence Estimate, inflating the threat Iran-backed Hezbollah poses to the United States (www.rawstory.com, 07/25/07). Also, the influential Heritage Foundation has been war-gaming the economic impact a strike against Iran might have on the United States and is assuring the Pentagon that the United States will be able to endure any economic hardships created by such an attack (www.heritage.org, 07/25/07).
When the decision to attack is made, things will move very quickly and the myriad, largely superficial reasons given to the Congressional leadership to support the attack on Iraq will once again be presented to you. The best hope to avert this outcome is to find some way to slow down the Bush Administration’s rush towards further military conflict. Impeachment may be the only way to do that.
Thank you for your time.
Any of you who want to share your messages to Speaker Pelosi but lack a blog platform with which to do so can e-mail me at email@example.com and I'll post them for you. (You still have to make sure they go to Speaker Pelosi - I'm doing this to share your ideas with fellow Nancygrammers.)
