WHEREAS, even though Bush/Cheney will be out of office on 1/20/09 and the pursuit of truth regarding this administration will be a repugnant, intensive process, this pursuit will:
* demonstrate to elected officials and to the world that we demand accountability
* demonstrate to the world a peaceful process to remove corrupt power holders
* most importantly, help us to heal the fear, shame, and crippling degree of partisanship brought on by domestic and international catastrophes of the last seven years, and
WHEREAS, Both Vice President Dick Cheney and President Bush and their high officials exploited the nation's response to the September 11th attacks in order to sell the Iraq War to Congress and the public by citing trumped-up information about Iraq's weapons capabilities and falsely implying that Iraq sheltered terrorists who would attack the United States, and
WHEREAS, the Iraq War has, so far, resulted in the death of 4,300 US and Coalition military personnel, at least 1,100 contract personnel, by the lowest estimation, 85,000 Iraqi civilians and totally destroyed the infrastructure of Iraq, and
WHEREAS, Bush and Cheney have broken international law by waterboarding terrorist suspects, and both Bush and Cheney have stated in interviews and speeches that this practice was legal, and
WHEREAS, President George W. Bush has repeatedly admitted, and even defended his instruction to the National Security Agency (NSA) to eavesdrop electronically on American citizens without a warrant during the last seven years, and has defiantly stated his intention to continue to do so, and has as much as acknowledged these crimes by seeking passage of legislation for retroactive immunity to prosecutions for these activities; and
WHEREAS, the Bush/Cheney administration has quashed the release of scientific findings in reports including findings in the areas of pollution, stem cell research, reproductive health, and climate change among others, and
WHEREAS,the Bush/Cheney administration has wrongfully claimed executive privilege in response to Congressional oversight investigations of controversies such as the outing of a CIA operative, the bungled, deadly response to Hurricane Katrina, and the firings of nine US attorneys, therefore be it
RESOLVED, That President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney be impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors against the people, the laws, and the Constitution of the United States of America.
