As Congressional teabaggers refuse to admit their so-called scandals are evaporating before their eyes, pursuing a president for his legal -- if sometimes politically misguided (although I'm not sure of that) --attempts at maintaining security, they (and their D counterparts, sadly) refuse to pursue the most damaging criminal activity a president has undertaken. War crimes, by all but his own definition. And, the toll it took on everyone remotely involved. From a recent suicide note, by a soldier, forced to participate in numerous torture sessions in Iraq:
I understand, I think, Obama's decision not to go after his predecessors for their international crimes against humanity; either for reasons of national health, or to avoid risking his agenda (how'd that work out?), he chose to let it lie. In the long run, especially if he'd maintained the moral high ground he sought at the beginning, I think it might have been better for us all, here and abroad, had he brought the law to bear on them. But, of course, given the fracture that his mere presence has caused, the hateful, spiteful, and anti-American, undemocratic behavior of his Congressional adversaries based on virtually nothing but paranoia and cynical politics at its worst, I guess Rs would have sought, from now until doomsday (coming soon, they aver), to impeach every D president there'd ever be. For breathing.
