Guest Blogging By Crush on the Downing Street Memo
Hey there little dudes!! This is Crush from Finding Nemo. You dudes are looking really good today!
I wanted to let you guys know about somethin' I read the other day. It's like really heavy, so pay attention.
There's this memo that was written before the US invaded Iraq, like in July of 2002, that totally proves that George Bush and Tony Blair conspired together to "fix the intelligence" to go to war with Iraq.
The authenticity of this memo has not been disputed. It's like real, dudes! And it totally proves that the President of the United States lied to the citizens and to Congress.
Saddam Hussein didn't have weapons of mass destruction and no ties to Al Queda or the 9-11 attack and George Bush knew it. That's so uncool, isn't it? More than 1600 American soldiers have died and a whole bunch of Iraqis too. Over a lie.
Here's some of the text of the memo.

And now there's some people that are calling for his impeachment. I mean lying to Congress is like totally uncool.
So go read up on this stuff. It's good to know what your government is up to, because after all, this is a democracy and you dudes should have a say in what your government is doing right?
Oh, I almost forgot. John Conyers has a letter that we should all sign to get Mr. Bush to answer some questions about this stuff. Go sign it and do something good for your country today!
Oh, and just so you know, I totally back-dated this post. It was really written on June 8th, 2005.
