Sen. Joe Biden (D-DE) stated unequivocally that he will move to impeach President Bush if he bombs Iran without congressional approval. “The President has no authority to unilaterally attack Iran and if he does, as foreign relations committee chairman, I will move to impeach,” he said.
What, going to war against Iraq based on lies isn’t enough?
Invading Afghanistan instead of pursuing extradition isn’t enough?
Admitting secret renditions, a violation of international law, isn’t enough?
Holding a U.S. citizen for years without charges isn’t enough?
Torturing prisoners isn’t enough?
You, Senator Biden, have to draw an imaginary line in the sand? A line which, by the way, ignores the effect of the War Powers Act granting the President the authority to use military force any way He sees fit for up to 60 days without Congressional approval.
No, Senator Biden, I am not impressed with your grandstanding. There are enough reasons to impeach the president right now. You don’t need to add one more line, one more time. Support the Constitution NOW or shut-up about it.
