Time to call the Bushites to account - DC NY
Millions of people in the United States and the world over feel it is past time to call George W. Bush and his administration to account for criminal misconduct. Unfortunately, President Obama does not appear to be interested in such an endeavor and there seems insufficient support in Congress.
Obama believes, I think, that it is best to let sleeping does lie, but that is not so in this case. Perhaps the lack of support in Congress derives from the fear that many members of Congress may find themselves implicated in the Bushites nefarious schemes.
Distributor Cap NY recently posted an article called "Collective Guilt." In this article DC lays out the case for a an investigation of Bush, his administration, and his minions who went blithely about lying to the American people as they turned our laws upside down and ran our country into the ground.
DC says: "There is little doubt in any sane, rationale (sic) or thinking person's mind that the Bush Junta Administration is guilty of many, many, many (did I say many) egregious, felonious and treasonous violations of American and International law. A small sample includes (in no particular order):
* Lying [to] the American people to start the Iraq War
* No bid contracts to Halliburton and other Bush favorites
* Politicization and hiring practices in the Justice Department
* Private Armies
* Illegal wiretaps
* Holding prisoners without charging them of crimes - shipping them off US territory to avoid US law
* Abuses at Abu Graibh and violations of the Geneva Convention
What DC posits, and I agree with him, we need a thorough and complete investigation into these and other criminal and unlaw acts of the Bush administration, because "no matter what ideas, plans and bailouts Obama embarks on, we will never be able to regain the psychological wherewithal as a nation to heal, grow and finally, like Gerry Ford said, move on. Never. I hate to sound cliche - but the truth will set you free."
DC continues on to suggest there are several historical parallels, such as the Nuremberg Trials, which can point the way for us to proceed.
But if looks like we are going to have to prod the Obama administration and OUR elected leaders in Washington to get off their duffs and take action...
