Martin Lewis at the Huffington Post urges General Peter Pace to "relieve the President of his command. Not of his Presidency. But of his military role as Commander-In-Chief. You simply invoke the Uniform Code Of Military Justice."
If you have reason to believe that the President is responsible for "disorders and neglects to the prejudice of good order and discipline in the armed forces" and for "conduct of a nature to bring discredit upon the armed forces, and crimes and offenses not capital" then you have the obligation to act. In addition to relieving him of his command as Commander-In-Chief, you also have authority to place the President under MILITARY arrest.

Over the last two months important people in America have been arguing over the Surge. This video discussion at Pajamas Media highlights just how politically important a report on Iraq awaited in September will be. Anybody based in Washington might think the planet's axis rotated around it. But over that same period, as this site recounts, the world had other troubles. The linked site has an impressive listing of worldwide terror attacks on mostly ordinary people: minor Thai bureaucrats, Iraqi civilians, Somali senior citizens, Afghan tribesmen, Yazidis, Pakistani teachers, Algerian policemen, Buddhist monks, Philippine Marines, Christian pastors, Lebanese soldiers. Today comes news of an attack on the southern Indian city of Hyderabad, on people eating at a restaurant and watching a lightshow at a park.
The worries in Western capitals may not entirely correspond to the problems of the world. The link between the two is severed by the intermediation of politics. Like the prisoners in Plato's Cave opinion leaders often react to the shadow of events rather than the events in themselves. Some people have become blinded by their own monstrous perceptions. Some people live in a world of their own furnishing. Good God. What a place to be.
