Here's a thought: The murderous moron has thus been accused with more Articles of Impeachment than all other past Presidents combined. He lasted eight years too long.
The Jenius Has Spoken.
[Update: 5 April 2012: The man called "Curveball," the man whose "information" about Weapons of Mass Destructiom was used to "justify" the Iraqi invasion, admits he lied about the WMDs.
He, Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi, lied.
And rather than confirm the "flimsy, even sketchy"--Alwan al-Janabi's own words--the badly-misnamed "intelligence committee" and the murderous moron's criminal administration "sexed up" the unproven "information" to launch a war with no valid reason, causing thousands of deaths, billions in losses and billions gained for walking shits that have not been prosecuted.]
