An OPEN LETTER to the United States House of Representatives Committee on the Judiciary, the Honorable John Conyers presiding.

Fellow Citizens: I seek to provide you a means by which to effect the peaceful overthrow of tyranny. There shall be no mistake about it, a usurper has acquired power in America. He seeks to make it absolute. You are now called upon to demand the excercise of congressional responsibility. He and his aides lie to us on television and berate us for our disbelief. He speaks to us flanked by a photograph of family and our flag which he wears on his lapel. Beside him stands a bust of Abraham Lincoln. He confesses to crimes against the Constitution and believes he speaks exoneration.

His invasion of Iraq violated the United Nations Charter, which "prohibits the use of military force" against any nation without the approval of the United Nations Security Council, which never approved the invasion of Iraq.

Also, his invasion of Iraq was not in compliance with the House Joint Resolution 114 "Authorization to Use Military Force", in that the "most critical WHEREAS clauses" contained therein were not complied with, including the provision that "(d) Nothing in this Joint Resolution...(1) is intended to alter...the provison of existing treaties".

Therefore, "Bush Exceeded the Authority of HJR 114" Link CLICK HERE thereby making his invasion and occupation of Iraq, and everything that followed, totally illegal and immoral from the very first day, "the supreme crime against humanity, an illegal war of aggression against a sovereign nation", as defined at Nuremberg.

Chairman Conyers is called upon to prosecute this crime against humanity.

Most certainly, if and when he does, he would only be doing his job.
