Are we a country whose democracy is active, or are we at a point where our democracy is approaching a state of inaction?

Guilty

By Al Neuharth, founder of USA Today.
It should remind us of how little we knew about Iraq and how Rumsfeld, Vice President Dick Cheney, Bush and others
pulled the wool over our eyes.
Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and their pro-war crowd warned us Iraq’s Saddam Hussein was harboring weapons of mass
destruction that he might use against neighboring countries.
But they said fixing the problem would be simple.

Guilty

You orchestrated the invasion of an independent country by falsifying the evidence.

No supporting evidence of WMD, no smoking gun.

You are guilty of lying to our country,  lying to the citizens of your country who  trusted you  to protect them. That was your responsibility

You betrayed a CIA agent and put its field agents working on our security in grave danger.

You deliberately put American young people in harm's way, you lied to these young people telling them they were invading another country to protect our freedoms.

You are criminals. You are cowards hiding behind our soldiers. You did not hesitate to send Americans to die. To die for your lies.

You did not hesitate to kill hundreds of thousands civilians of an independent country,  a country you invaded without just cause

You are cowards. You evaded military service.  No, you never fought in a war;  you have always been cowards. It is easy for cowards to be brave while cowering  at a safe distance  behind those in harm's way. You could care less about lives lost, devastated families, orphaned children. You could care less about kids who lost their mother or father for no good reason.

Tens of thousands injured soldiers, young lives ruined. All that because you lied our country into this criminal, illegal, pointless war.

But you are fine. Enjoying life, writing books, making speeches.

I accuse you of war crimes. I accuse you of the great harm you brought upon our country and on the world.

Guilty.

George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Carl Rove, Donald Rumsfeld.

The country has to know.

The world has to know.

You are criminals and should be treated as such.

And that is how history shall  remember you.
