"The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors." - Article II, Section 4, US Constitution

"Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court." - Article III, Section 3, US Constitution

The Current Occupant, in a speech Friday (20 April 2007) at East Lansing High School in Michigan, used, as a visual aid to show how well the purge - I mean, surge - is going in Baghdad, a map which showed the placement of US troops, complete with major streets and landmarks (for reference, I suppose). Video footage of the speech, including the map, are available (a short bit was shown on Friday on Countdown [link via C&L]).

How hard will it be for anyone so interested to overlay that map with a Google Map image to gain co-ordinates for the bases shown? How difficult will it be to then aim mortars (or rockets) at those co-ordinates?

If any attacks occur at these locations, can it not be argued that George W. Bush gave aid to the enemy by showing the map?

Start the proceedings, Speaker Pelosi. Surely at least two people who were either at the speech, or have seen the footage, will be willing to testify to that effect.
