GEORGE W. BUSH SHOULD NOT HAVE WITHHELD SECRETS FROM CONGRESS.

BUSH WAS SO CORRUPT.
__________
SCANDALS! SCANDALS! SCANDALS!

DANGER! DANGER! DANGER!

GEORGE W. BUSH IS AN EXTREMELY DANGEROUS CRIMINAL STALKER!

“In her suit, Margie Schoedinger states that George W. Bush committed sexual crimes against her, organized harassment and moral pressure on her, her family members and close relatives and friends. As Schoedinger said, she was strongly recommended to keep her mouth shut.... Furthermore, she alleges that George Bush ordered to show pressure on her to the point, when she commits suicide”(go to Google, type “blog of drizzten Margie Schoedinger,” and hit “Enter”).

“George [Bush is personally complicit] in the death (murder to be precise) of my friend Margie Schoedinger in September of 2003. Determining the exact whereabouts and contacts of ... George Bush on September 21 thru 22, 2003, should be entirely lacking in difficulty”(Leola McConnell—Nevada Progressive Democratic Candidate for U.S. Senate in 2010).

McConnell is correct: Bush applying pressure (continuously criminally stalking Margie Schoedinger) purposefully to force Schoedinger to commit suicide does in fact constitute murder where it culminated in her death.

Bush’s method of murdering Schoedinger cannot exist in a vacuum: he must have murdered other people in the same way.

During Bush’s presidency, of course Bush would have desired to kill people whom he hated or get them out of his way. Insofar as Bush was clearly capable of murdering Schoedinger—even in “broad daylight”—and is clearly capable of getting away with it, in consideration of common sense and the laws of human nature, Bush of course murdered numerous people in the disgusting way he murdered Schoedinger. One can examine public information; in various situations where people who sought to oppose or disadvantage Bush ever so frighteningly ended up “committing suicide”—specifically—Bush murdered them just like he murdered Schoedinger. For example, Bush murdered James Howard Hatfield by continuously criminally stalking Hatfield to the point that Hatfield could not get away from it—purposefully to force Hatfield to commit suicide—and Hatfield committed suicide in desperation to escape. However, the vast majority of such scandalous cases will never come out (the grisly details are typically hard to substantiate). A prosecutor really can lawfully charge a former president with murdering one or more people in the disgusting way Bush murdered Schoedinger. The American people unfortunately live in a world where evil presidents can murder any number of people—figuratively—with a wave of a magic wand and get away with it.

(There are thousands of copies of the information above on the Internet. Please feel free to go to any major search engine, type “GEORGE W. BUSH IS AN EXTREMELY DANGEROUS CRIMINAL STALKER” or “George W.

Ask yourself WHY we are still at war in Afghanistan if the mastermind & financer of 9-11 is NOT on the US Gov/Military Hit List...?
LIAR.

"Specifically, the Post reported that during secret negotiations in 1996 between American officials and Sudan defense minister Elfatih Erwa, "The [Khartoum] government was prepared to place [bin Laden] in custody and hand him over, though to whom was ambiguous. In one formulation, Erwa said Sudan would consider any legitimate proffer of criminal charges against the accused terrorist. Saudi Arabia, he said, was the most logical destination." The Post then detailed efforts by the White House and the State Department to induce the Saudis to accept custody of bin Laden, which the authorities in Riyadh adamantly refused."

"While Clinton never got bin Laden, Sullivan cannot honestly fault him for lack of zeal. In 1998, he authorized an intensive, ongoing campaign to destroy al-Qaida and seize or assassinate bin Laden by signing a secret National Security Decision Directive to that effect.

Several attempts were made on bin Laden's life, aside from the famous cruise missile launches that summer, which Sullivan and other Republicans reflexively denounced as an attempt to deflect attention from the Lewinsky scandal.

(It never seems to occur to them that they are smearing not only Clinton, but also ranking intelligence and military officers, such as Gen. Anthony Zinni, now President Bush's Mideast envoy, who encouraged the president to take that shot in the dark.)

In 1999, the CIA organized a Pakistani commando unit to enter Afghanistan on a mission to capture or kill bin Laden. That operation was aborted when Gen. Pervez Musharraf seized the Pakistani government from Nawaz Sharif, the more cooperative civilian prime minister. A year later, the Saudi terrorist leader was reportedly almost killed in a rocket-grenade attack on his convoy; the missiles hit the wrong truck.

Simultaneously, the White House tried to persuade or coerce the Taliban regime into expelling bin Laden from their country. Clinton signed an executive order freezing $254 million in Taliban assets in the United States, while the State Department kept the Taliban internationally isolated.

But as we have learned since last September, there was nothing the United States could have done, short of full-scale military action, to separate al-Qaida from the Taliban. And there was no guarantee that such action would lead to the apprehension of bin Laden, as we have also discovered lately."

All the above were Limbaugh lies. You can repeat your BIG LIES over and over and over; and they will never become true.

Your belief system is based on the liees you have collected from your BIG LIE sources.

I do not expect you to accept this, but I feel obligated to point it out to you anyhow.

That is not a threat, it seems to be a wish, and I second it.

Cheney brought lies, murder, and torture to thousands. He pulled his puppet George's strings to pour Billions and Billions from the US Treasury to his corporations.

Cheney should experience what he wrought on others. Except for murder. He should be kept alive.

Gee Whiz, I would have thought the word "secret" was a dead giveaway that you're NOT supposed to publicize it and look into it.

Heaven's to Betsy these people we elect are so stupid they don't even know the meaning of the word.

Ok, so the economy is in bad shape and all these do-nothing Democrats are doing is using this subject to steer away from the real issues. The stimulus is not working so they're hiding behind the CIA...But guess what Democrats, we're NOT stupid! Wait until 2010....there will be CHANGE!!

Isn't this exactly what people are trying to get Cheney for? He just talked about it, Clinton signed a secret National Security Decision Directive.

Send Clinton to prison for doing it, slap Cheney on the wrist for talking about it and not following through.

Bill's got to be sweating Big Mac's over the outcome.

This is just crazy libspeak. You should learn some facts instead of just parrotting the lies, smears and anti-Bush/Cheney propaganda you've been taught by the government run media and left wing kook blogs.

Cheney probably broke the law by not informing Congress and by advocating the use of torture. If you think Clinton broke the law then go after him for it.

Why didn't Bush go after Clinton? Why didn't the Republican Congress go after Clinton if they think so?

I know you people love torture but waterboarding someone 180+ times isn't just torture by sane person's definition - and therefore illegal in civilized society - it is also unbelievably incompetent.
