Isn’t lying your country into at least one war a fundamental undermining of its military position akin to treason? Especially if those same parties are claiming we have millions of “enemies” all over the world to be worried about?
I quote Article III, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution of 1787:
Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court.
Certainly no bigger aid or comfort can be given to our alleged enemies, Muslim terrorists, than to divert half our armed forces from the “Global War on Terror,” to what Bush and others have admitted was a war of choice (ie, aggression) against Iraqi President Saddam Hussein and his government and political party, leaving us fighting the GWOT with one hand tied behind our back.
And we are all witnesses.
