I, like many of my friends and colleagues, have been frustrated with the Democratic Congress for not doing more to reign in the Bush administration, put them on trial in the House, hold more hearings....whatever.
(I might add that I'm not all that unhappy about the telecoms immunity from civil lawsuit. Better hold off and try the decision makers. It won't do any good, and probably much harm, to sue the telecoms, unless everyones wants their rates to go up. The companies who are sued just pass the cost along to the shareholders and their customers. The CEO ands other officers won't see their exobitant salaries reduced. The real way to go after all of them is criminally.)
Nevertheless, I am beginning to wonder if there isn't a method to the congress-critters seeming madness. Several times I have heard various Congress-critters say that they are gathering information for the record. Several people have helped with various books and some testimony before various committees.
Everyone says that Junior will simply pardon himself and everyone else before he walks out of the White House. A pardon, when no crime has yet even been alleged, officially, by the House Judiciary Committee, would have to be written the same way Nixon's was, naming no specific crime he committed, rather absolving him of all crimes he may have committed. If such a pardon is accepted, it is an admission of guilt for any number of crimes. A president can pardon a person and they are off the hook in the U.S., but a presidential pardon means nothing at the Hague and this bunch has been caught seriously considering and committing international war crimes of a most heinous type.
If pardons do go out and are accepted by Bushites, it is time for a major citizens arrest, if neccessary, extraordinary rendition.
