Prosecute Bush

Krugman, rightly, calls for investigations.

It’s hard, then, not to be cynical when some of the people who should have spoken out against what was happening, but didn’t, now declare that we should forget the whole era — for the sake of the country, of course.

Sorry, but what we really should do for the sake of the country is have investigations both of torture and of the march to war. These investigations should, where appropriate, be followed by prosecutions — not out of vindictiveness, but because this is a nation of laws.

Exactly right. If laws were broken, and it certainly looks like they were, the criminals should be prosecuted.

    Thanks for linking to Krugman on this post! I had missed it. Like I said to a friend, you don’t try to build a health spa on a toxic waste dump. Until we return to the law as a base in our society, we can’t return to the real meaning of justice for all. We definitely need a fresh start, you did good!
