RE Obama not going after any of the Bush regime for criminal acts, I always felt that there was some kind of blackmail going on. When there was talk of impeaching Cheney, no one wanted to even consider it, like there was something going on behind the scenes.Like that whole regime HAD something on everyone else in power. I will always believe this. There should have been hearings, investigations, of countless acts of malfeasance during those 8 years, but NOTHING has ever been done. It makes you wonder.

Considering they used to use stories like this to enlist people to fight Germans and other enemy nations, it's no wonder why enemy states are able to gather support.
If you don't prosecute them, and let your enemies know you are fair, you will never have their respect to lead them to a change. Be it democracy, freedom or whatever other ideological nonsense you make up.
