We all knew it was coming but here is the lede of an Associated Press report (emphasis added):
WASHINGTON Jan 12, 2005 — The search for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq has quietly concluded without any evidence of the banned weapons that President Bush cited as justification for going to war, the White House said Wednesday.
Bush lied to Congress and the American people. Those lies caused and continue to cause the deaths of hundreds of American soldiers and countless thousands of Iraqis, not to mention dooming any sort of sound fiscal or budgetary policy.
This may not fit neatly into the constitutional requirement of high crimes and misdemeanors, but when everything else surrounding him taking us to war for no justifiable reason is included, Bush has undoubtedly engaged in substantial and serious misconduct. Unfortunately, 51 percent of voting Americans were too stupid to get rid of him in November when they had the chance to redeem this country. Blood stains their hands too. Perhaps impeachment is a sliver of atonement.
