'Smoking gun' fanned

"A new coalition, called After Downing Street, launched a campaign last week urging the U.S. Congress to investigate whether or not President Bush committed any impeachable offense in relation to the Iraq invasion," writes Charles Norman Todd. "This is not a call for an impeachment, but a call for an investigation, because the public has the right to know – our elected officials answer to us. In support of the After Downing Street campaign, a coalition of 169 plus bloggers has formed...called the Big Brass Alliance. If you have a blog, we urge you to join in this effort today, to support the call for an investigation." (Freiheit und Wissen)
