Time for impeachment hearings

In 2003, George Bush invaded Iraq primarily because Iraq allegedly had Weapons of Mass Destruction that could threaten the United States. But last October, the Duelfer Report proved there were no WMD's in Iraq in 2003. And this May, the Downing Street Memos proved the pre-war "intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy" to sell an illegal invasion of Iraq to Congress, the American people, and the world. On June 30, a Zogby poll found 42% of Americans said

if it is found that President Bush did not tell the truth about his reasons for going to war with Iraq, Congress should hold him accountable through impeachment." http://www.zogby.com/news/ReadNews.dbm?ID=1007
And yet, a week after this poll was released, only three mainstream media outlets even made cursory mention of the results.
The Impeachment Question: "But you wouldn't know it from following the news. Only three mainstream outlets that I can find made even cursory mention of the poll last week when it came out."
The time has come for accountability from this administration. Enough with the lies. Enough with the distractions. Enough with the fear-mongering. Enough with this president.
