Attention: F. James Sensenbrenner, Jr.

Since you’re the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, I figure you must be the appropriate person to address this to.

I have another piece of evidence to go into your articles of impeachment against George Bush and Dick Cheney:

“Drumheller, who retired [from the CIA] last year, says the White House ignored crucial information from a high and credible source. The source was Iraq’s foreign minister, Naji Sabri, with whom U.S. spies had made a deal.

“When CIA Director George Tenet delivered this news to the president, the vice president and other high ranking officials, they were excited — but not for long.

“‘[The source] told us that there were no active weapons of mass destruction programs,” says [former CIA analyst] Drumheller. ‘The [White House] group that was dealing with preparation for the Iraq war came back and said they were no longer interested. And we said ‘Well, what about the intel?’ And they said ‘Well, this isn’t about intel anymore. This is about regime change.'”

There’s nothing particularly earth-shattering here, except perhaps for the question of who exactly made up the “they” that blew this source off in such a manner. But it ought to serve well enough as another nail in the House’s indictment of this criminal administration.

This may also be an appropriate time for the last few people who still believe they weren’t deliberately lied into war to go ahead and take the opportunity to snap out of it.
