SINCE, Bush/Cheney grabbed so much power and used it against the American People and against the country.
AND SINCE, there is a great deal of argument for "moving forward" and not looking back. Mostly, I think from people who are trying to cover their own asses, but nevertheless.
AND SINCE, we will have no investigations, no trials, no ability to claim executive privilege or hide behind "issues of national security."
RESOLVED, with the powers GW instituted to meet his own insidious ends, Obama can simply declare GW, Cheney, Rove, Rumsfeld, Rice, Wolfowitz, Gonzales, Tom Delay, .... oh, come on, I know there's more of them, ........ are you ready?
They certainly "combated" this country. Almost destroyed it, that certainly makes them "enemies." They have made no secret of their contempt for the rule of law so cherished by all who revel in the uniqueness of that concept in this country. They set up the system, they must certainly approve of it. Let' s "ye-use" it.
Problem solved: goes "forward" without looking back, can be done immediately, no grand jury, no special prosecutor, no gathering of evidence, just executive order. Then: no civil rights to worry about, no access to lawyers, no trial necessary, "detainment" until whenever, vile conditions, torture (I mean, seems only fair, they set it up), ..........
Not revenge -- the rule of "law," justice.
Sweet, sweet justice.
Update: While not as viciously violent as my suggestion, John Dean (former Counsel to the President of the United States, 1970), offers a much more reasoned argument for visiting this problem.
- One would think that people like Cheney, Rumsfeld, Addington, Gonzales, Yoo, Haynes and others, who claim to have done nothing wrong, would call for investigations to clear themselves if they really believed that to be the case. Only they, however, seem to believe in their innocence – the entire gutless and cowardly group of them, who have shamed themselves and the nation by committing crimes against humanity in the name of the United States.
