Hey, maybe someone will eventually be held accountable for Bush’s flaunting of the constitution! Here’s a Reuters report on a possible Senate inquiry.
A U.S. “truth commission” should investigate Bush administration policies including the promotion of war in Iraq, detainee treatment and wiretapping without a warrant, an influential senator proposed on Monday.
Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, urged a commission as a way to heal what he called sharp political divides under former President George W. Bush and to prevent future abuses.
He compared it to other truth commissions, such as one in South Africa that investigated the apartheid era.
It’s about time! Some of us have been bitching about Bush’s toilet paper treatment of the constitution since it started as soon as he quit hiding right after 9/11. It’s probably too much to hope for, but maybe we could get him a few years in jail with no charges being filed….
