Israel pushed Iraq War - Not bloody funny

This is such a disgrace that even a shill like Dana Milbank can't defend it (to his credit he doesn't really try other than one feeble attempt). House Democrats, led by inveterate moonbat John Conyers (D-Michigan), decided to hold a 'mock' impeachment trial of President Bush based on 'falsehoods' related to the Iraq war. It was such fun that the ordinarily sensible Barney Frank (D-Mass.) and Maxine Waters (D-Calif.)--about whom the less said the better--joined for the festivities which were aired on C-SPAN.

...The session took an awkward turn when witness Ray McGovern, a former intelligence analyst, declared that the United States went to war in Iraq for oil, Israel and military bases craved by administration "neocons" so "the United States and Israel could dominate that part of the world." He said that Israel should not be considered an ally and that Bush was doing the bidding of Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon.

"Israel is not allowed to be brought up in polite conversation," McGovern said. "The last time I did this, the previous director of Central Intelligence called me anti-Semitic."

Rep. James P. Moran Jr. (D-Va.), who prompted the question by wondering whether the true war motive was Iraq's threat to Israel, thanked McGovern for his "candid answer."

Right off the pages of the Democratic Underground.

And to top it off:

At Democratic headquarters, where an overflow crowd watched the hearing on television, activists handed out documents repeating two accusations -- that an Israeli company had warning of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and that there was an "insider trading scam" on 9/11 -- that previously has been used to suggest Israel was behind the attacks.

At the Democratic headquarters???!?? And this morally bankrupt party wonders why it keeps losing elections?
