    Default Should Bush and company be held accountable?

    Here is three articles dealing with the present administrations culpability for war crimes and how they should be handled. All of them should be read as each has a different perspective.

    No!

    BTW, I didn't read the articles.

    Should the Bush administration be thanked by the American people for keeping United States soil safe after 9/11?

    I believe that in the most fundamental sense the American people have already held the administration accountable by turning out in very large numbers at the polls. While I believe a number of the people in the administration may well have earned criminal prosecution by their lawless behavior (most notably the V-P), I'm not sure that such a prosecution would benefit anyone. However, I believe it would be useful to throw away a lot of the shield of secrecy that the administration has used to hide its activities. Disclosure of what has been done wrongly in our name is the first step towards preventing similar abuse in the future.

    The true George Bush haters, might enjoy reading The Prosectuion of George Bush for Murder by Vincent Bugliosi.

    Yes I have listened to the audio version driving to and from trials. While I truly believe that history will record George Bush as one of the worst presidents in this country's history, I could not finish the book. This man HATES George Bush and that hate oozes from every page, but he does make a case and the book does include dramatic examples of Mr. Bush's incompetence.

    Today's NY Times would have prosecuted FDR, Ike and MacArthur for war crimes in WWII if they could. That paper is as anti-American as Pravda.

    While it is true there has been no successful foreign based terrors attack on the U.S. in the 7 years after 9/11, there weren't any foreign based terror attacks the seven years before 9/11 either. Looks like there is a full round of kudos overdue to other people along with those going to W.

    Frankly put, not a good analogy. The world changed after 9/11 and if you don't see that, then you need to come back from living on mars.....

    America may have changed when it found out it was not safe behind those big oceans. But, the world was already gunning for us for a long time.

    WRONG. Why do you confuse the "world" and Islam???? Or are you conceding the entire world to Islam? Or mebbe you are an Islamic apologizer?
