    So lets check the score..

    Whitewater, a realestate deal that the Clintons lost money on was investigated for five years with no findings........NO THATS NOT POLITICAL

    Monica Gate, a daliance between consenting adults lead to a full scale impeachment proceeding with no finding.......NO THATS NOT POLITICAL

    The Bush administration engages in outright torture in violation of international laws and all semblance of humanity...........THATS NOT FAIR...THATS POLITICAL

    If we feel its "Political" why don't we turn the evidence over to a neutral international tribunal and let them decide?

    He's proud that he broke the law and now he's crying that he might be held accountable.

    If he were really proud he'd happily go to prison.

    The problem with all this is that the torture techniques were, by all accounts, not used often or long enough to really credit them with "effectiveness" or to claim it was a widespread "program" of torture. Yes, I think ordering them was wrong, but from what I understand (and there's a lot of conflicting information out there) the order was rather quickly rescinded years ago over Cheney's objections. On this one, IMO Bush at least tried to do the right thing - even if it was too little, too late.
    The only person who may merit an investigation at this point is the DOJ "attorney" who authorized the order to begin with, and I'm not sure I support even that. It's too late and looks too political now. McCain was right, the worst part of it was the image problem and recruiting factor once it became public. But again, it's too little, too late and too political to fix that now. Obama was right on this one. Just stop doing it and let sleeping dogs lie.
