Much official data refutes the Bush cover story while critical evidence that would prove Bush correct is missing. Bush put forward a 'theory' for which there is not a shred of verifiable evidence in support.

How George Bush Became a Dictator John Dean makes this chilling point: Nixon, he says, toyed with the idea of defying the high court, but, in the end resigned. Bush/Cheney won't budge. They have already declared that whatever may be alleged against them, they can, themselves "authorize" it. Bush has assumed the power to interpret the Supreme Court and, in a crisis, he will defy the court. The American republic is over.

How Bush "Liberated" Iraq Since Persian Gulf War I, the people of Iraq have suffered from its residual effects and the ongoing deprivations of sanctions. Now when all the rationales for war have been proven to have been untrue, Bush is hard pressed to "define" a victory that he can declare. "Liberation" is not it!

U.S. court rules our government can break international laws to carry out torture A recent decision by a federal court is bad news for anti-torture activists. The decision raises serious doubts that a program of torture can be restrained via the courts. The decision seemingly abrogates what had been a judicial prerogative —the very concept of judicial review. It raises a grave question: in what other way can torture be ended?

A little noted victim of Bush's tyranny: the individual conscience A constitutional crisis looms. Bush refuses to enforce provisions of some 750 statutes and, in other instances, adds "signing statements" invariably at odds with the intentions of congress. Bush insists that he has the right to decide which laws are Constitutional and which are not. Just as important, however, are inumerable crises of conscience as citizens are forced to choose between what is right and what is Bush.

You know you're living in a dictatorship when telling the truth becomes a crime As Bush descends into ratings hell, his "absolutist" rhetoric is ratcheted up. Math buffs would say the two are inversely proportional. Even as he descended into the "30's", Bush and his Bushevik regime were defending "Stalinesque" rule with words like "unitary executive","inherent powers", and "executive privilege." Now Bush wants to prosecute reporters for telling the truth about his failed administration.
