Holder Special CIA Prosecutor Inspires KOmmie Bloodlust
Breaking: HOLDER to appoint Special Prosecutor!!!
[Enjoy! Perhaps you won't notice the ObamaCare fade while you're celebrating.]
Just got text from WAPO: US Attorney general to appoint prosecutor to investigate allegations that CIA interrogators broke anti-torture laws.
[EEK! They tortured with A/C and extra helpings of orange glaze chicken with rice pilaf.]
This is a great day in America. I don't know much about Durham, but I know having a special prosecutor is what I've wanted since Jan. 20, 2009, and one of the reasons (besides healthcare) that I worked so hard on the campaign.
[Since ObamaCare seems to be a bust, one out of two ain't bad. However, when the backfire comes, you will end up with ZERO out of two.]
Lock 'em up, incl. Dick.
[Straight to The Hague. Do not pass Go.]
Especially Dick. He's the instigator here. He above all needs to be taken down.
[Cheney was in the CIA during the past 8 years? No matter. Prosecute now and sort it out later.]
Don't forget the Chimp. He signed off. Don't let him skate with "Who, me? I'm too stupid."
[Why not go for broke and prosecute Rush Limbaugh too?]
There must be investigation, there must be prosecution, and there ultimately must be life sentences without parole or pardon for 1) the people at the top who ordered torture, 2) those near the top who violated the Constitution on an almost daily basis to allow it to happen, and 3) those who crafted the legal opinions to let it happen.
While many others also arguably deserve life sentences, the absolute minimum is for the people in those three categories to spend the rest of their lives in prison. Anything less is unacceptable to the continued survival of the Constitution, the rule of law, and any semblance of morality or human dignity.
Names in those three categories include, but are not limited to: Cheney, Rove, Bush, Addington, Rumsfeld, Gonzales, Yoo, Bybee.
[And don't forget Barney the Dog.]
Why not use the the Nuremberg trials as a guide....for trying our home-grown international law and constitutional criminals? I can see little difference between the Nazis and these bastards.
[Eichman turned up the A/C at the camps and force fed the prisoners large helpings of orange glaze chicken?]
Rummy, too and I'm betting a guy named Rove got involved, too. Not to mention a couple of Generals.
[Fortunately Karl Rove has already been indicted on May 12, 2006.]
I did state that they should all be in prision. Heck, the dog should probably go too for standing by his master til the end.
[I SWEAR I did NOT read this when I jokingly posted above about Barney the Dog being investigated.]
but what I have learned about Holder ... is that he's methodical and extremely prepared - he's been pushing back on a special prosecutor on torture until he had a clear strategy ...
[but what I have learned about Holder ... is that he's been pushing back against prosecuting the Black Panthers in Philly for threatening voters at the polls with clubs.]
We can lock up the interrogators. We can lock up the memo lawyers. We can lock up people like Rumseld and Rice. All that would be great. But in the end, it STILL won't send the message that the world needs to see. Unless we also lock of GEORGE W. BUSH AND DICK CHENEY, this is gonna be little more than a whitewash.
[Hey! Go for broke! LOCK UP ALL CONSERVATIVES!!!]
I think maybe the overall populace will need to see a huge accumulation of facts before they will begin to believe the degree of horrific-ness that the Cheney administration represented. This move opens to the door to those revelations to those who don't watch MSNBC.
[Yeah, it will open their eyes as to how political these investigations are.]
After the Fitzgerold fiasco I'm not sure it matters. I don't know that the criminal enterprise that was the Bush/Cheney administration can ever be cracked.
Now let's hope it actually leads to actual justice!
[Justice like the Marc Rich pardon to which Holder gave his thumbs up.]
Look, I want to see Bush and Cheney investigated as much as anyone, but the idea of us "pushing" the AG on any of this is incredibly offensive. It's not Holder's job to give a shit what you or I think. It's his job to enforce the law.
[Enforce the law? So where were the indictments of the Philly Black Panthers who threatened voters with clubs?]
These crimes must be prosecuted, no matter where they lead.
[Unless they lead to Black Panthers intimidating voters.]
Obama took on Holder specifically because he knew he would seek this info out and pursue it, maybe the exact day isn't the best timing but you can be sure that there was a general time frame for investigations to begin.
[The time frame began when Obama's popularity entered the free-fall stage.]
I don't want to see Cheney locked up. As a person who also has a pacemaker, I want to see the battery in Cheney's pacemaker removed. That's good enough for me.
[Feel the love!]
Does anyone think this is strange timing? It seems like there are so many Obama Administration irons in the fire right now, will this get the attention it really needs? Perhaps this is a way of getting the Grand Obstructionist Party to pay less attention to killing Health Care reform and to leave Cap 'N Trade alone.
[Yup! It certainly is strange timing. And it is ALL ABOUT POLITICS.]
All I want for christmas is Bush-Cheney in a cell
Would have LOVED Fitzgerald in that post.
If you will recall...Fitzgerald did NOT indict Rove.
[Oh yes he did. It happened on May 12, 2006. Just ask William Rivers Pitt.]
This only matters if they go after DoD higher ups and the Vice President. Locking up some CIA chumps will be a waste of time and effort and make us look like dicks.
[Have no fear. You already look that way.]
I have said it before, timing, by the time 2010 - 2012 roll around, Dick and Geroge will be getting their subpeonas.
[Drooled the KOmmie in anticipation.]
The Right will point to left-leaning sites like Kos and say "See it's a political witch hunt".
[Li'l Beaver's finger is already pointing straight at you.]
This is an instance where it would be better to celebrate in silence and let the process go where it may. Obama has desperately tried to distance himself from any Holder situation, to try and keep politics out of it.
[Too late. We have already noticed your gloat fest.]
They need to get the higher ups, especially Bush and Cheney, and they need also to go out and expose just how widespread this atrocious behavior was. I think that every time we win one thing, it makes it easier to win the next one. It's about time; let's go!
[Hey! Hey! Ho! Ho! Bush and Cheney must go...to The Hague.]
I had hope and faith that this would happen. I am so happy!
[And when you're finished with the massive urinations of happyness in your pants, you might notice that ObamaCare has been run off the road.]
War crimes were committed by George W. ("We don't torture!") Bush, Dick (dictator) Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, John (Torture isn't torture so it is legal.) Yoo, George ("Medal of Freedom") Tenet, Alberto ("I don't recall.") Gonzales, John (Jesus Christ is my savior.) Ashcroft, David Addington, et. al. Execute quickly!
[Bypass the trials! Go straight to the gallows!]
