Ghosts of Impeachments Past
A guy who's no stranger to Presidential malfeasance, former Nixon staffer John Dean suggests that, if Clinton can get impeached for lying about some illicit fellatio, and Tricky Dick can nearly get impeached for lying about election tampering, then maybe, just maybe, lying to justify invading and conquering a sovereign nation might be worth a look.

The problem with this, of course, is that none of Bush's statements were made under oath. And lying to the American people, while bad, probably isn't illegal, strictly speaking. If, on the other hand, someone could demonstrate that there was some sort of illicit link between the corporations that got free contracts in Iraq and Bush's drive to war, then we might be on to something.
