Three Bright Spots

Rachel Maddow, Jonathan Turley, Keith Olberman these people are not distracted by the look over here AIG meltdown and airwaves consuming fiasco. No these folks are staying on message of malfeasance and torture, by the former administration.
When listening to Jonathan Turley You see just how simple the argument he makes is, it is not some complex legality figured out only by a Philadelphia lawyer, it is the simple rule of law. The memos are out there as are the admissions by Dick and George. They broke the law not just American law but International law as well.
As I have posted before on this site no more commissions, now is the time for a special prosecutor. Then and only then will the American people be satisfied that the rule of law works at all levels and confronts all crime. There was a very large portion of the population that during the former administration called for the impeachment of the President and Vice President this call was never met but was indeed warranted. Justice can never be served until it is confronted and charges laid and met. The people need to see these men get their day in court
Keith Olberman again is on topic discussing the revelations by Seymour Hersh of an assassination squad reporting directly to Dick Cheney. I know that these are unsubstantiated allegations by Mr. Hersh however he does seem to put out there a good deal of evidence as to who operated this command.
Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich has a suggestion that might get the ball rolling. Kucinich has asked New York Congressman Edolphus Towns, the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, to begin an immediate investigation into Hersh's allegations.
For the life of me I can’t see why all of the known, knowns and unknown unknowns shouldn’t be investigated by a special prosecutor, and soon!!

I keep thinking something will be done. However I am thinking it is going to have to be done by someone outside the US. I just don't think we have the guts or the strength to do it here. There are too many people who think Bush was ok in doing what he did.. Sad as it is to say that.. Not me.. I think he was WRONG.. in every way there is..from lying us into the war, to his treatment of detainees or prisoners, to the snatching of people off the streets, all of it wrong, wrong...illegal, immoral and criminal. However, from what it looks like we are in the minority. How sad is that?

I don't know what it would take to make people realize how bad things were under Bush, and that's why I think we DO need the Truth commission.. or something like that.. if only to show exactly how bad things were, how people were treated and how they handled each thing. I think people need to see all of that.. That's why Pres. Obama for all he is catching flack for it, is taking his time in doing anything... he is getting all these memos out and letting people see what is there. Just biding his time.. Right now he has so much on his plate.. with all this economical mess... maybe once this crap is over with, or at least started on the road to recovery, we can really focus on Bush and Co.. I hope so any way.

But I thank you for keeping the focus on this.. keep it up.. we can't let up and we can't give up.
