Kucinich Moves to Impeach Cheney

April 26, 2007

In essence, Kucinich argues Cheney should be impeached because he knowingly:

– Manipulated intelligence to fabricate the threat of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq

– Manipulated intelligence to fabricate a relationship between Iraq and al Qaeda

– Openly threatened aggression against Iran without the existence of any real threat to the United States

Without doubt, Cheney is guilty of all counts levied against him, but moving forward with impeachment would be futile.  The Vice President does not represent a new or unique doctrine of the American executive branch.  All of his predecessors fabricated threats, manipulated intelligence and used jingoistic propaganda to justify war.  Impeachment proceedings against Cheney would only reinforce the misconception that the problems we face are the result of poor leadership.  Nothing could be farther from the truth.  Whether or not Dick Cheney holds office, the American-capitalist hegemon functions in essentially the same fashion.
