I'm sorry but so we have a Democratic President. It means nothing new. We won't have the country healed until we know the truth of all of the things that John Yoo did and the Bush administration did to circumvent justice. I want the truth. We need to do a full investigation into all of the events in the Bush administration. It's a good start that some of the members are being investigated but all of them need to be looked into. We need to find out all of the secret memoes they made. We need to find out all of what the Presidents signing statements did and how they would have an effect on our country. I think that we need to have a truth commission right now. The Democrats better get started on it. We learn mistakes from the past and prevent them in the future but if we never know what the mistakes are then we're bound to repeat them anyways. We need to find out what really happened in the last 8 years behind the scenes and we need to prosecute anyone that broke the law.

The law needs to be held to the highest stature.

Typically when a demand for criminal prosecution is called for, there's at least one specific reason as to why. The laws in our country allow any person to cry, "Citizens Arrest!" so I say by all means exercise your right however there are consequences to false prosecution. Please post yoru findings after you have Bush arrested and brought up on charges.

Regarding transparency, I agree the public should have as much information and truth as possible. I'm sure there are still some secrets regarding enemy troop positions that should still be held as priviledged information, but we should be seeing all that we're paying a president to do whether that's Bush, Obama, or anyone before.



We can thank Black's Law Dictionary for a good definition: "The apprehending or detaining of a person in order to be forthcoming to answer an alleged or suspected crime." See Ex parte Sherwood, (29 Tex. App. 334, 15 S.W. 812).

In the most crime ridden spot in the country, our nation's capitol, District of Columbia Law 23- 582(b) reads as follows:

(b) A private person may arrest another -

(1) who he has probable cause to believe is committing in his presence -

(A) a felony, or

(B) an offense enumerated in section 23-581 (a)(2); or

(2) in aid of a law enforcement officer or special policeman, or other person authorized by law to make an arrest.

(c) Any person making an arrest pursuant to this section shall deliver the person arrested to a law enforcement officer without unreasonable delay. (July 29, 1970, 84 Stat. 630, Pub. L. 91-358, Title II, § 210(a); 1973 Ed., § 23-582; Apr. 30, 1988, D.C. Law 7-104, § 7(e), 35 DCR 147.)

I totally agree with you. But reality is what it is.

The reality of the situation is that to prosecute George Bush and his administration would be a huge sign of frailty to the rest of the world (atleast thats how the moronic masses would perceive it)

The Bush admin will never pay for their sins until their day of judgment before the creator.

For me, that's just going to have to work

Why just the Bush Administration?

Let's go after George Washington for executing spies and traitors on the spot with no trial whatsoever. Let's go after Abraham Lincoln for suspending Habeus Corpus. Let's go after Franklin Roosevelt for forcing Japanese Americans into internment camps.

Let's go back and review every President and his administration just to compare and see if this would be justified.

Hey now, let's not confuse the issue with things like history and facts. It's hard to point fingers when we only have ten of them. Surely someone else has to be blamed for the bad things that happen to us. 0:-)

Sure. But by your title it looks like you've already got your decision made as to what may or may not have happened.

'There 'MUST be criminal prosecutions of the Bush administration.'

How about an investigation first, eh? Or are you all fired up to prosecute and you don't even know what laws may or may not have been broken?

While we are at it .. let's investigate the current POTUS. Let's look 'behind the scenes' as you say and see where the heck his doggone REAL birth certificate is and if he's even eligible to be POTUS.

Afterall .. lady justice is blindfolded. Let's check 'em all out.
The law needs to be held to the highest stature - to quote you.

This is true. We know that Congress and Bush had the same intelligence data on WMDs in Iraq. It must be proven that Bush either manipulated the data or knew the data was false when Congress voted to go to war.

We don't even know for 100% sure that there were no WMDs in Iraq before we invaded. All we know for sure is we never found any. But Saddam sure as hell had them in the past when he gassed the Kurds - that we do know.

So that's where the administration would have to start with prosecution, and if it cannot be proven beyond a reasonable doubt, then those who produced the WMD intelligence data would be the next in line to be investigated.

But I think Obama is far too concerned with nationalizing health care at the moment to care about prosecuting anyone.
