Obama's Justice Department is now looking into the torture and murder and kidnapping that was nothing to the Bush Regime.
I have made clear how I feel all about this shit over and over. If our country ordered these people to torture, etc... then whoever was behind that policy needs to BE INVESTIGATED FIRST.
My other hope would be that by bringing in CIA agents who participated in this and other tragedies, we can get them to talk on record, for immunity, about how a fascist president tried to steal our country. He also tried to open up not two war fronts, but three.
I jumped into politics after ignoring it for years when I realized that Bush was gearing up to invade Iran. That would have basically meant three wars going on in the middle east, and god only knows how many more moderate countries would have just decided, "Wow, Bush is attacking Islam... let's gang up on them."
Looking forward, without learning the mistakes of our past, is not going to win Obama any Nobel Peace Prizes, let alone the kind of world wide respect the leading democracy on the planet could have, if we actually decided to pursue a course of liberty and freedom for all.
IT is with a great deal of irony that I defend anyone in the intelligence community at this point. While I have nothing against spies in general, and understand their worth, I have something against a country that would throw them to the wolves, just to protect Bush and Cheney.
Obama may actually be putting himself in danger by going ahead with an investigation of the CIA. They sure as hell had something to do with Kennedy, who was going to disband them... had the paperwork drawn up, when that magic bullet assured their continued efforts in history. Kennedy also pissed off the Mob, who have worked with the CIA all over the globe, so... who knows?
My point is that we need to instigate LAWS that stop this from happening again. That will only happen when we pull out the big guns. Let's face it, if Bush and Cheney were from certain countries, they would be in front of the WORLD COURT answering for their sins.
