Way Past Time To Remove The Entire Maladministration

FBI files indict Bush, Cheney and Co. as war criminals

"The most stunning revelation in a 370-page Justice US Department Inspector General’s report released this week was that agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation had formally opened a “War Crimes” file, documenting torture they had witnessed at the Guantánamo Bay US prison camp, before being ordered by the administration to stop writing their reports. (...)

The report makes it absolutely clear that torture was ordered and planned in detail at the highest levels of the government—including the White House, the National Security Council, the Pentagon and the Justice Department. Attempts to stop it on legal or pragmatic grounds by individuals within the government were systematically suppressed, and evidence of this criminal activity covered up."

"Stunning" is the word for it.

It's likely this criminal admin will be allowed to finish out its term. But IMO, if an Obama justice department doesn't start a serious criminal investigation of these bastards, I'll have a harder time believing his talk about change and hope.

Obama talks a good line, abi, but politicians being what they are I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for any kind of justice.
To allow the present scum to escape after all they've destroyed and stolen would be a crime in and of itself.
But there's a factor involved that truly changes the equation.
For the last several years I've been scratching my head trying to figure out why the mafia has blithely gone about their destructive ways, seemingly with no thought to the impact of such destructive policies, uncaring about the future.
Unfortunately I think it's because they know there's no future left for what we understand as our country.
