Time to Impeach Bush
Repeal the Patriot Act
Regime Change Begins at Home
Wednesday, January 15th, 2003 at Lytton Plaza, in downtown Palo Alto

A year ago, a group of activists marched on Senator Feinstein’s office to meet with Senator Boxer and Senator Feinstein’s staff and to demand a Congressional Investigation of 9-11. We raised a number of questions, including-

What is the relationship between Bin Laden, his family and the Bush family and the Carlyle Group?
Why were no fighter planes dispatched to intercept the four hijacked planes on September 11th , in violation of standard procedures?
What is the U.S. relationship with Pakistan, and especially with its intelligence service, the ISI?
Why did the then director of the ISI have $100,000 transferred to the man whom the FBI now calls the ringleader of the Sept. 11th attacks, and why does the U.S. not pursue this question?
Did the CIA have foreknowledge of the attack, who tried to profit with put options on American, United, Merrill Lynch… stock just before the attack?
Why were the FBI told to not investigate the Bin Laden family links in the US?

Bush and Cheney quickly urged Daschle to “limit the inquiries of 9-11,” which were officially overseen by the C.I.A. and men who deserved to be investigated for their September 11th 2001 breakfast meeting with the “Money Man” behind the attacks. Resisting a nationwide demand for an Independent Commission, Bush finally conceded to create a commission, with very limited parameters, to be overseen by the renowned Henry Kissinger, the war criminal extraordinaire who has repeatedly lied to Congress, and has been working for oil companies very interested in the Caspian Sea Basin. His replacement, Thomas Kean, is hardly an improvement, with oil interests and financial ties to Bin Laden’s brother-in-law.

Just because the government is lying to the American people, and trying to cover-up the truth about 9-11 doesn’t mean that they were guilty of the entire operation, but it does make them a prime suspect, especially when the attack is the “pretext” for aggressive wars over oil resources, the dismantling of the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, democracy and dissent at home and abroad. It is also clear that a government that is terrorizing its own people and the world, behaving in a criminal manner, has lost its legitimacy (although with a stolen election there really wasn’t much legitimacy to begin with). Law Professor Francis A. Boyle has kindly offered to draw up articles of impeachment for Bush II (the only thing that stopped Bush I). It behooves those of us who care about peace, planet, democracy, our human fate to demand that our “public servants” rein in our “rogue government” before it inflicts more harm upon us and the world.

On Wednesday, January 15th, 2003 from Lytton Plaza, (University & Emerson) in downtown Palo Alto, we will march on our Congresswoman Anna Eshoo’s office (a short walk away on Emerson) to demand that she begin the impeachment process against Bush, assist us in repealing the Patriot Act, and preventing further crimes against humanity (a war on Iraq, Colombia, Venezuela or any other oil rich country Bush would like to attack). All are welcome to join us in solidarity or visit your local Congress Critter and urge them to do the right thing.
