As King Xerxes’ chief advisor, Haman, was plotting to kill all the Jews in the Kingdom, he didn’t realize that Queen Ester was Jewish. He didn’t realize that by raising his hand against an unknown enemy, he was in fact raising his hand against his Queen . . . the beloved wife of King Xerxes.

She was wise enough to let his own wickedness be his undoing. She didn’t condemn Haman to death with her words, or her demands upon her husband . . . she only petitioned her husband for an audience to hear the truth.

Hamen condemned himself with his own words. He can blame no one else for his undoing. He was even hung from the gallows that he intended for another

. As we hear those who fought so hard to try and impeach President Nixon 24 years ago, now defending similar actions by another president, we are reminded of Haman. Their gallows, constructed 24 years ago out of flimsy evidence, has solidified through the years, and stands ready to hang one of its builders.

Like Queen Esther, the Renaissance Women want the truth to set the people free.

There are many theories floating around to suggest that the war in Yugoslavia is a smokescreen to draw attention away from the Clinton Administration’s questionable relationship with China — including illegal campaign contributions, sharing of top secret miliatry intelligence, down- playing the strategic significance of the Panama Canal purchase and other miliary bases — not to mention their abhorant and gross violations of human rights that make Serbia’s pale in comparison.

But I have another theory that began in the “Wag the Dog” period when Clinton took advantage of his position as Commander in Chief and attacked two sovereign nations, Sudan and Afghanistan, to distract us from the impeachment.

The transparent reason he used for bombing Iraq, on the same day the impeachment proceedings began, was because he didn’t want to bomb during their holy day.

However he was not hesitant to send U.S. bombers over Belgrade on Easter Sunday.

The KLA, that the U.S. now supports receives funds from Osama bin Laden. Is our support for his pet terrorist group, the KLA, a payback for a diversion during a sticky time for Clinton?

The price of liberty is constant vigilance.
