The Heat Is On

Obama is going to be sworn in as the 44th President of the United States of America at noon Eastern time tomorrow.
Right this minute, the cries for investigations and prosecution for War Crimes is all over the television.

Basically, the Bush administration has flat out admitted that they have crossed the line and have actually tortured people.

Keith Olbermann just went off on it and now Rachel Maddow has just interviewed Constitutional expert Jonathan Turley and it seems President Obama is not going to get to sweep this criminal shit under the rug like has intimated that he would prefer to do.

Good.

Just as there is no statute of limitations on treason, so also, there are none for war crimes.

This needs to be investigated and prosecuted.
We prosecuted and executed Japanese and German prisoners of war for doing exactly the same fucking thing to our soldiers after the end of World War II.

Why is it now so fucking OK for us to do it to someone else?

    Let the prosecutions begin! The sad thing is if Brush and Cheney aren't prosecuted.

  3. The lowest level soldiers following orders from the highest levels of our government sit in prison for committing torture. And they should be there, they did follow illegal orders. But in any FREE SOCIETY those that gave the authorization for torture would be sharing their cells!!! This CAN NOT STAND! Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Addington, Yoo, Ashcroft, and more MUST BE PUT IN PRISON for the United States to continue as a Constitutional Democracy!
