Impeachment? -- a Teach-In
Have the numerous scandals of the Bush administration - Iraq, wiretapping, detentions and torture, Katrina, etc, etc - passed the level of "high crimes and misdemeanors" at which the Constitution calls for impeachment and removal from office?
Those questions will be addressed on Saturday, February 18th, from 2:00 to 4:00 PM at the main meeting room of the Downtown Library, at a public discussion organized by the Community Coalition Against War & Terrorism (CCAWT).
Panelists Dennis C. Jett, former ambassador to Peru and Mozambique and dean of the University of Florida's Center for International Relations, and Kenneth R. Nunn, UF law professor, will offer brief talks and answer questions on these issues. The discussion will be moderated by area activist Charlie Grapski.
Polls have shown that a majority of the American public favors impeachment if it is proved that the Bush-Cheney administration lied to launch the war against Iraq - clearly a crime of much greater consequence than Pres. Clinton's attempted cover-up of a minor sex scandal. With public outrage growing at the exposure of widespread warrantless NSA eavesdropping, the question becomes what will Congress do about such abuses of power; and, more to the point, what can the voters do to compel their elected representatives to take action?
