Rep. Cynthia McKinney Introduces Bush Impeachment Bill
In what was likely her final legislative act in Congress, outgoing Georgia Rep. Cynthia McKinney announced a bill Friday to impeach President Bush.
The legislation has no chance of passing and serves as a symbolic parting shot not only at Bush but also at Democratic leaders. Incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has made clear that she will not entertain proposals to sanction Bush and has warned the liberal wing of her party against making political hay of impeachment.
Germany Condemns Iranian Plan to Host Holocaust Conference
Germany condemned a planned Iranian conference on the Holocaust and summoned Iran's charge d'affaires to the Foreign Ministry, saying that attempts to question the Nazis' murder of Jews were "shocking and unacceptable."
The conference, scheduled for Sunday and Monday, was organized by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who has called the systematic killing of some 6 million Jews a "myth" and "exaggerated." Some 67 foreign researchers from 30 countries are scheduled to attend the two-day meeting.
The Iranian president has called for Israel to be "wiped off the map," and the Tehran conference appeared to be part of Ahmadinejad's public campaign against the Jewish state.
Hey Iraq Study Group: you have suggested that we work hand in hand with the new Hitler. You have emboldened him, encouraged him and now you want to give him a massage. Future generations are going to look back at you in disgust knowing that you allowed whatever future atrocities that the new Hitler is going to bring to the world.
I guess "never again" doesn't mean anything to the pompous, self-righteous, self-serving, worthless politicians that we send to Washington.
