what?

Aljazeera: …… on the floor of the intelligence chief’s office (in Libya) lay an envelope addressed to Gaddafi’s son Saif Al-Islam. Inside, I found what appears to be a summary of a conversation between US congressman Denis Kucinich, who publicly opposed US policy on Libya, and an intermediary for the Libyan leader’s son.

It details a request by the congressman for information he needed to lobby American lawmakers to suspend their support for the Libyan National Transitional Council (NTC) and to put an end to NATO airstrikes. According to the document, Kucinich wanted evidence of corruption within the NTC and, like his fellow countryman Welch, any possible links within rebel ranks to al-Qaeda.

The document also lists specific information needed to defend Saif Al-Islam, who is currently on the International Criminal Court’s most wanted list…..

TPM (March 2011): A number of Democratic and Republican lawmakers are concerned about the White House’s air assault on Libya, but Rep. Dennis Kucinich raised the rhetoric to 11 on Monday, suggesting President Obama should be impeached.

“President Obama moved forward without Congress approving. He didn’t have Congressional authorization, he has gone against the Constitution, and that’s got to be said,” Kucinich said…. Obama’s decision “would appear on its face to be an impeachable offense”.

****

****

From March 2011:

CNN: Democratic Rep. Dennis Kucinich is transforming his critique of President Obama’s actions in Libya into a fundraising plea, asking supporters to decide whether they like President Obama or the Constitution more.

After calling the president’s decision to act in Libya an “impeachable offense,” Kucinich Monday posted a letter on his website asking supporters for help in “putting together a broad fundraising structure to make sure that I’ll have the resources to continue to be a voice in the Unites States Congress.”

….Stating that he “never failed to stand up” when advocating for the “need to more our economy forward” or “internationally standing up for peace,” Kucinich asked potential donors to shore up his re-election efforts for 2012.

…. Ohio is set to undergo redistricting following the results of the most recent U.S. Census, a development that may make Kucinich’s road to re-election more difficult….

The Atlantic: ….  Al Jazeera’s Jamal Elshayyal is reporting this afternoon that the Ohio congressman may have translated his opposition into outright collaboration with the Qaddafi regime.

Elshayyal claims he’s uncovered a document at Libya’s intelligence headquarters in Tripoli ….. The file explains that the congressman (who is not named in the document reproduced on Al Jazeera’s site, raising questions about how Elshayyal pinpointed Kucinich) is seeking information from the Libyan government to file a lawsuit against NATO, the U.N., and the U.S., defend Saif al-Islam at the International Criminal Court, reform the image of the regime, and facilitate negotiations to end the conflict.

….. Kucinich already landed in hot water earlier this year for traveling to Syria to meet with President Bashar al-Assad …. In a statement on Friday that sounded very similar to Kucinich’s justification for visiting Assad, the representative explained, “In my efforts to end the war, I have been contacted by many parties – including members of the Qaddafi regime and some with ties to the rebels….”

Update: Rep. Kucinich’s office has sent The Atlantic Wire a statement in which the congressman flatly denies Al Jazeera’s report, claiming that the document in question is simply a summary of Kucinich’s public positions on the Libyan campaign by a Libyan bureaucrat who never consulted with Kucinich himself….

        I don’t know if I missed it but the piece says the document appears to be notes from a meeting/conversation with Kucinich but I don’t see his name anywhere on the document.

        That is the sort of stuff that the network news is going to have to absolutely corroborate before they go on air with this.

    • August 31, 2011 at 2:06 pm

      The only reason I’m not after the Welch guy too is because he’s a private citizen and I’m not sure it matters in the same way as it does that a congressman was involved in trying to assist someone who is considered a criminal and I think classified as an enemy to the US and to NATO.

      • August 31, 2011 at 4:56 pm

        sherijr, Kucinich has always been a bit of a jerk, but David Welch is dangerous. He was assistant secretary of state for mid-Eastern affairs during the Bush administration. He either drew up the U.S.-Libya Comprehensive Claims Settlement Agreement himself, or had a lot to do with it and, of course, signed it for the US. This agreement paved the way for the restoration of full diplomatic and , most importantly, commercial relations between the US and Gadaffi’s Libya.

        Welch is the president of the mid eastern section for Bechtel. Bechtel is the biggest construction company in the world. I can’t believe there wasn’t a strong profit-making motive in the early days of the rebellion — before the rebels got the upper hand — behind the entire idea of anti-NATO, anti-intervention in Lybia.

        I don’t think Kucinich is in on any money deal, but he could easily be a dupe for Bechtel via David Welch. Because, of all things, Kucinich is a quintessential dupe.

    Kucinich is the perfect example of an ideolog who pushes his ideology so so far it leads to totally absurd behavior. The man is totally incapable of pondering complex problems where values and principles come in conflict with one another. I mean … Intervening in another country is indeed very delicate… But sometimes it’s necessary.

    What’s angering me the most is that he is undermining the delicate diplomatic work of the administration. Gosh have you noticed the headline in the link? Granted it is misleading but still. Let’s push back at Al-jazeera and explain that Kucinich is a loner and is NOT influencial. Not by a long shot.

Then, they have the gall to criticize the right for doing it. Hypocrites. IMO, if you’re wrong, you’re wrong, whether you represent the right or the left, and Kucinich was wrong in going behind PBO’s back to undermine his Middle Eastern foreign policy goals. I knew there was some reason I have never thought that Kucinich was an honest broker on any issue.

    OT: I have been waiting for one of the Republican governors to speak out about the comments from Majority Leader Eric Cantor on disaster aid requiring cuts in other areas of the government. Well it looks like Bob O’Donnell of Virginia has done just that.

    Cantor faces pushback on disaster aid callousness
    =======================================

    Yesterday, Cantor faced some pushback from a high-profile ally: his own state’s conservative governor.

    Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, breaking with fellow Republican Cantor, on Tuesday suggested that deficit-spending concerns should not be a factor as Congress and the Federal Emergency Management Agency respond to Hurricane Irene.

    “My concern is that we help people in need,” McDonnell said during his monthly radio show. “For the FEMA money that’s going to flow, it’s up to them on how they get it. I don’t think it’s the time to get into that [deficit] debate.”

    Before Irene hit, McDonnell had requested emergency help from FEMA in 10 districts, including Cantor’s. All the requests were granted.

    We also learned today that Cantor was given a chance during the Bush era to vote for offsetting the costs of disaster relief — but Cantor voted against the same approach that he’s now pushing.

    http://www.washingtonmonthly.com/political-animal/2011_08/cantor_faces_pushback_on_disas031917.php

    • August 31, 2011 at 2:26 pm

      Cantor got slapped. McDonnell wants that federal money and he’s not taking a cut to get it. Eric will come around to his way of thinking.

    • August 31, 2011 at 3:12 pm

      And Senator Sanders laid into the GOP when he was interviewed this morning (I’m not sure whether it’s MSNBC or CNN). As the Senator from Vermont, he pretty much made it clear that this was the worst he’d ever seen, and he was pretty livid about the fact that aid might be held up thanks to Cantor’s foolishness.

      Sometimes Senator Sanders gets me riled up (like, say, only firing rhetoric at the President), but in this matter, he was spot on. I hope he brings that passion to bear on the GOP and embarrasses the living Jesus out of them.

              Irene will go into Canada, get picked up by the Jet Stream and hit here in the next day or so. We always get the dregs of all the hurricanes. Everything depends on where the Jet Stream is located at the moment, above, below or on top of us as to how drenched we will get.
              The Gulf Stream used to keep us warm until it deserted Ireland for Canada. Now it has deserted Canada and seems to be a big blob in the ocean not doing anyone any good.

Also, Randi Rhodes played a sound track of Limbaugh stating that Boehner needed to put Obama “IN HIS PLACE!” After this statement, Boehner sent his second letter to Obama stating (paraphrasing) that a joint session was unnecessary and that Obama could give his speech on another day.

      Wow, the candidates will look even more like political runts.

      Since only one cable channel will be carrying the “great debate” it will be irrelevant. Everyone wants to know what the Prez is going to do about jobs, and what congress will do, since it affects them now. No one is interested in what a bunch of presidential wanna-be’s have to say. I doubt they were going to get a huge audience for the debate anyway.

    I hope the President in due time visits the affected areas hit by Irene before they get on his ass 🙄

    I bet that Dennis had to change his draws, when he read that story. Notice he is denied that story, quick fast and in a hurry. He is worried about the Logan Act. I don’t think that after this is over, we will be hearing much from Dennis. He is toast.

      This little pimp is really trying to put the screws to us. Well, we will not let him do it. Go straight to hell, Mr. Huntsman. I said straight,which means no stopping on the side roads to get plenty of ice cold water. Your evil lips will need it, though. How hateful and destrictive can a person’s heart become. Shame on Mr. Huntsman. I went over and read the article. Sounds like the muck is trying to tear down some of the good POTUS has done. HZ

    Oh yeah, now that The Atlantic has it there must be people digging around for more information. I personally will withhold my judgement until someone can actually provide evidence that Kucinich spoke with the regime. No doubt there are a number of journalists investigating it right now.

    Everyone of these back stabbing self righteous SOBs will take a fall one-by-one.

    Soon, some in the GOP and PL will declare Al Jazeera the Obama Network, kinda like how MSNBC had that nickname once upon a time.

    Why is it these congress Democratic critturs keep flaming? I guess Kucinich thinks he has nothing to lose as his district will get redestricted.
