    today i was thinking about how screwed up in every possible way the bush administration was, and i had a thought. why cant bush be prosecuted for sending human beings to egypt to be tortured? It's no secret that this happened, and furthermore it took me less than 5 minutes on line to find legal precedence to do just that under 18 USC § 2340A. Thats the law under which charles "chucky" taylor was prosecuted for doing THE EXACT SAME THING! and get this, taylor used the exact same justification, "fighting terrorism". your site wount allow me to post a link to an article about the taylor case however you can look it up.
    can someone please tell me HOW IN THE NAME OF GOD BUSH IS GETTING AWAY WITH THIS? seriously i want to know,whats the excuse for this? when the democrats had full control of the Federal government FOR TWO YEARS! please i would really like to hear the explanation for this.

    Just be glad we aren't prosecuting you for being a partisan hack.

    Let's send Obama with him seeing how he re-authorized the evil Patriot Act.

    Because a prosecution would allow the defense to use discovery, aka, an in depth investigation.

    That investigation would turn up the facts that almost all politicians in that decade supported this, maybe not publicly, but behind closed doors they knew this had to be done. They'd bring up the fact that Obama Admin is STILL doing this. That Sec of State H. Clinton knows we're still doing it. That Senator Biden knew. Speaker Pelosi knew. Reid knew.

    Going after Bush with this would drag hundreds of others with him, right wing and left wing. Thats why the Dem controlled 2009-2010 years didn't see them go after him. Because they didn't wanna go with him.

    Theres your answer.

    Obama reauthorized it. But worse.........

    JOE BIDEN wrote the Patriot Act............in 1995.

    Say that one more time....Joe Biden wrote the Patriot Act in 1995!!!!

    1995. 7 years pre-9-11. :eek:

    We are waiting for you to join the conspiracy theory fools who think President Bush was behind the attack on 911....Once you sign on then you can indict him for both crimes.

    Didn't Clinton start the practice of sending suspects to foreign countries to be tortured?

    How? Because the Republicans will not do it and the Dems do not have the balls to do it.

    That explains why the republicans were so supportive of the patriot act then.
    And why the vast majority of the Tea Party Caucus voted to extend it.
