"Astoundingly Disturbing"

• By Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzalez
 JUAN GONZÁLEZ: A Pentagon official predicted Thursday the war against al-Qaeda and its affiliates could last up to 20 more years. The comment came during a Senate hearing revisiting the Authorization for Use of Military Force, or AUMF, enacted by Congress days after the 2001 attacks. At the hearing, Pentagon officials claimed the AUMF gives the president power to wage endless war anywhere on the globe. Senator Angus King, an independent from Maine, described the hearing as the most, quote, "astoundingly disturbing" one he had been to since taking office earlier this year. King accused Obama administration of rewriting the Constitution.

I must apologize. What do I do? Nothing but comment in forums. Ernie goes out an fights, politically, in different ways at different times. What is astoundingly disturbing is that the people who could impeach Obama sit around and use word combos like "astoundingly disturbing," but don't move to impeach.
