Letter to the Editor, Miami Herald — Some might think that the Miami Herald and other corporate media outlets are completely ignorant of the importance of preserving the U.S. Constitution. The duty of Congress to impeach is mentioned six times in this awesome document. The Herald once again ignored what should have been a major news story. Yesterday, 7/10, Cong. Dennis Kucinich introduced an article of impeachment against President George W. Bush on the floor of the House of Representatives. The Article charged Bush with misleading Congress into authorizing the invasion and occupation of Iraq.
Also ignored by the Herald, NBC News and other media outlets was the fact that House Speaker Nancy “Impeachment is off the Table” Pelosi on 7/10 told the media that she expected the Judiciary Committee to consider the matter this time by way of impeachment hearings.
Public perception is that it is too late to impeach. It is never too late for Congress to learn the facts of how we were led into a totally unnecessary war which caused the slaughter and maiming of our proud servicemen and women and of countless Iraqis. Airing these facts in hearings will ensure that future presidents and vice presidents will not be able to defile our Constitution, which President Bush referred to as a ” g_dd _ _ ned piece of paper.” This utterance was made in November of 2005 in the presence of fellow Republicans, but again, underreported by corporate media.
