Bush tells the American people that he did not plan, long before 9-11, to go to war with Iraq. The Downing Street memo from London reveals that Bush faked the intelligence that led to war. The media has been slow to report this blockbuster story. The Republican-controlled Congress refuses to investigate. How is this not an impeachable offense? Bigger than a Monica Lewinsky?

The American (cough, cough) Free Press has not been "slow" to report this issue. They have actively dismissed and discounted it (i.e. covered it up)for the most part.

Why is that?

Maybe, the USA doesn't really have a "free press" to begin with.

As for Congress, the invasion of Iraq was a BIPARTISAN war with many leading democrats like John Kerry, Dick Gephardt, Joe Biden, Joe Liebermann, and Hillary Clinton supporting it.

And no, the Democrats were not "misled" by the Iraqi WMD lies. Joe Biden, for example, continues to support the occupation even today, and John Kerry during the Summer of 2004 said explicitly that he supported the invasion of Iraq even "knowing what he knows now" about WMDs.
