    Default Rumsfeld and Ashcroft in legal Jeopardy

    Don Rumsfeld and John Ashcroft may be in for some long nights talking to their lawyers about their policies during the Iraq war.

    I think this is good news. Let the Justice system sort this out and if there were laws violated let them prosecute.

    I think this amounts to two things: more wishful thinking from the left, a slow week for the editors of newsweek. Or in more technical terminology ...fluff.
    Why doesn't glue stick to the inside of the bottle?

    Newsweak??? Sounds more like Pravda or Izvestia reporting. I hope W does issue a blanket pardon to all the alleged "conspirators" listed in this left wing fantasy. I hate to think how many of today's liberals would have tried to indict MacArthur, Ike, Patton, Cordell Hull et al 60 odd yrs ago.

    GW should get the "Donkey of the Year" award for allowing a group of people with little to offer gain a majority.

    In 3 weeks GW Bush is outa there. The donkeys have the whole ball of wax with a socialist agenda. This is to divert attention from the fact that the BO administration & his allies, the lefties, have little too offer of substance.

    I hope GW issues a blanket pardon to everyone involved & we can get on with the business of dealing with the Agenda that is about to settle in our nations capital.

    I predict Leno will have considerable fodder for his new program.

    It amazes me every time I see it. Die hard, chest thumping, conservatives who preach that this is a country of laws and not men who see it as a badge of honor that no man is above the law, will make exceptions to the people who govern us.
    Can someone explain to me how this is.?

    It amazes me that limp-spined liberals forget who owns all the guns in this country as they promote their version of Soviet-esqe political cleansing by trying to retroactively punish policy decisions they didn't agree with once they have attained power. If ya'll keep pushing, eventually you're going to get some push back.

    So answer this...if you're tickled pink because you think that Rumsfeld and Ashcroft are in jeopardy, then you have to agree that the 8 members of Congress (4 of whom were Dems, including Pelosi) who signed off on the interrogation techniques should be standing in the defendents box along with them. So should Cheney. So should Bush. So should every person in the military and the CIA who participated in an interrogation you disaprove of, as you're well aware that "I was just following orders" isn't an adequate defense. Where do you draw the line of culpability with your political pogrom?

    Bush should issue a blanket pardon...not as any sort of admission of guilt, but to protect the assets of hundreds/thousands(?) of Americans who served their country from having to defend themselves against the threat of frivilous civil lawsuits by every left wing flying moonbat group with an axe to grind.

    I know all you manly men who call yourselves conservatives and have guns, think that anyone who doesn't think like you do are weak or limp spined. I can tell you from working 22 yrs as a Corrections officer in NY that some of these guys who yelled the loudest how tough they were and owned guns were some of the biggest pus#%$ I knew. The guys that didn't say much and who I am sure you would consider weak, were the guys who were there when you needed them most.

    As I have posted in here before, I have no problem with that at all. If you were involved then you need to be held accountable if the courts find that a crime was commited.

    It didn't work for Germans at Nuremburg did it? The punishments were different though.

    Bush should issue a blanket pardon...not as any sort of admission of guilt, but to protect the assets of hundreds/thousands(?) of Americans who served their country from having to defend themselves against the threat of frivilous civil lawsuits by every left wing flying moonbat group with an axe to grind.
    This is really nonsense. It seems you could rationalize anything that doesn't fit neatly into your hypocritical thinking.

    If they broke the law then be man enough to be held accountable for it..
