Dear Madame Speaker: IMPEACH!

Dear Speaker Pelosi,

I know you must be outraged by the Presidents commutation of Scooter Libby. Outrage, however is not enough. I know you have said of our President that he is not worth impeaching. By deed or by neglect he supported the exposure of Valarie Plame, a covert CIA operative. As you know, Ms. Plame worked to protect our country from the spread of weapons of mass destruction and was exposed in order to extract vengeance on her husband, a critic of the Bush administration. Exposing Ms. Plame was an act of treason. Exposing Ms. Plame's network was no less than giving aid and comfort to the enemy in time of war. To call it anything less obscures the true nature of that seditious act. How many agents died as a result of this betrayal. We will probably never know but surely many were placed in grave danger.

All members of congress have taken an oath to defend the constitution of the United States. By granting clemency to Mr. Libby, the President has declared his allegiance to these traitors. As our representatives, it is your duty to begin impeachment proceedings with all due speed. When you speak with one voice, declaring the treasonous character of this administration, the American people will be behind you.
