A flawed policy

Five years now, with 4,000 American troops dead, 30,000 wounded, 1,000 amputees, $650 billion spent, the loss of several cherished civil liberties, and the ill will of most of the civilized world. Why do we tolerate this administration’s adherence to a horribly flawed policy? Indeed, why do we tolerate this administration?

In recent memory, Congress began impeachment of one president for lying about a third-rate burglary and another for lying about his sex life, but somehow won’t consider bringing Dubya and Dick to task for lying about the justification for taking us into war. If that doesn’t rise to the level of an impeachable offense, what does?
