Rude is Gude

Everyone's favorite anarchist has a thing or two to say about the Deep Throat issue and the Downing Street memo.

He rants about the fact that, although America supported Nixon and he had a 60% approval rating even during the Vietnam war, it wasn't until he was proved to be involved in covert efforts to keep information from the American public, that he was run out of town on a rail.

Similar things are happening now. The Downing Street memo details what the U.S. knew prior to the invasion of Iraq, and that that information precluded the need for invasion.

Nixon resigned in disgrace over lying about a break-in of a competing party's campaign headquarters. Clinton was impeached for lying about having sex with an intern. George W. Bush lied about Iraq having weapons of mass destruction, and fabricated intellegence to back up his claims. His lies have cost thousands of American lives.

If he walks free and clear from this scandal, then it's a sad day for America, because we're all about freedom, justice, and the American way. And historically, we tend to go medieval on those who get caught lying to us.

At present, there are over 86,000 signatures on a letter to Bush from Congressman John Conyers demanding investigation into this issue.

If this issue is important to you, and it should be, you can do (preferably) all of several things:

We need to stop the deceit now.
