From San Diego

"We have brought torture, cluster bombs, depleted uranium, innumerable acts of random murder, misery, degradation and death to the Iraqi people and call it "bringing freedom and democracy to the Middle East."
-- Harold Pinter

"What kind of message is this sending to the world, and to the citizens of the United States? If you commit a crime and you are important enough, it's not prosecutable in America? That no one is above the law, except for presidents, vice presidents and their top staffs?" -David Lindorff

"President Bush and Vice President Cheney are guilty of war crimes, especially for their authorization, condoning, encouraging, protecting, and failure to halt and to punish the practice of torture by American forces under their control." - David Lindorff

"On its face, I would submit that if as president Obama blocks prosecution of Bush/Cheney administration war criminals, it will be the wounded American soldiers and their relatives, and the relatives of Americans who died in Iraq and Afghanistan at the hands of fighters in those countries who were recruited into battle by the images of the torture and abuse who will make his decision "politically fraught." -David Lindorff

Former Chief of the UN weapons inspector, Hans Blix, in Iraq told Aljazeera that he and the Head of the IAEA, Mohamed Al-Baradei, were subjected to direct threats from Vice President Cheney before the war.

Blix said that Cheney threatened to defame both men's reputations if they didn't come up with the "required" answers. Blix also added that he is ready to be a witness on the United States' false allegations before an International tribunal.

Bush and Cheney demanded pro-war lies under one threat or another - being defamed, getting fired, and even outing covert CIA operatives. The Bush Administration was nothing more than a mafia operation. -Bob Fertik

Seems like your "Impeach" campaign was very successful! Hahahahah! Idiot.

Thanks, it was a pleasure: it's a rare and precious gift to be able to participate in the political dialogue of this great nation. May I also commend you on your "Spend-two-years-in-your-apartment-comment-trolling-my-blog" campaign. I think it's really starting to pay off.

No offense, but may I humbly suggest that next time you plan to spend two years living in someone's shadow you might consider aiming a little higher.

Here's hoping that Bush and Cheney get their summons to The Hague, and soon!

Hey anonymous coward: OBAMA'S THE PRESIDENT. AND YOUR HERO BUSH ISN'T. Stings, don't it?

And to follow that up, let me just say that watching you make a spectacle of yourself never ceases to amuse me. Between this and the threatening email that was most likely sent by you to me, I'd say it's the best fun I've had in years.

As we've all learned, if you're not part of the solution, you must be part of the problem - guess which side this leaves you on? One thing that undoubtedly will save us from tyranny is the welcomed engagement with our new government. Why not try getting out of your cave and connecting with this new reality? You may find that even you can make a real contribution - rather than continuing yesterday's meaningless blather. Otherwise, just go away...
