Another shocking revelation from the Bush/ Cheney regime, of course we won't know the full extent of their crimes for another 40 or 50 years.

What a crime against the USA Cheney committed over and over.. so much corruption... this, the Halliburton affairs, other secrets .. he's probably behind the domestic wiretapping stuff too... Bush is too dumb to think of that himself.

Many feel a group of neo-cons designed the Bush presidency as Cheney to be the puppeteer, Bush as the puppet, and GOP / neo-con projects would be advanced .. like getting cheap oil from Iraq for the US corporate machine ... all failures

Why not? Let's appoint a special prosecutor, and delve into any "secret programs" withheld from congress.

It won't happen .... and you know why? The democrats are not interested in finding the truth ... They deal in accusations and inuendo.

Let me tell you what will happen. The dems will not allow any "investigation" but totally rely on Panetta to "clean things up" while divulging no factual evidence whatsoever ... just Panetta's version of things. Since the CiA can't speak to any of its programs ... Panetta's version will be gospel, and Pelosi will be glorified as exposing the lies and deceit of the Bush CIA.
All tied up in a neat package.

Much neater than the investigation of the CIA by congress they recently shut down ... don't you think? Better we only hear Panetta's and the democrats version.

What I was getting at was that the people will not know anything of the crimes committed by Bush for 40 or 50 years, Clinton, 30 or 40. G.W., 20 or 30. Reagan 10 or 20. Carter 0 to 10. The same for the previous administrations, it's called CYA and every administration plays it Dem. or Rep. but why am I explaining myself to you, Republicans can do no wrong, even if they get caught.

Maybe now people will consider trying to put Cheney in prison.

You just gotta love these Republicans claiming to love freedom, and then trying to set up a police state.

Hypocrites to the last man.

Ok ... what crimes did FDR, Truman, and Eisenhower commit? It has been over 50 years now ... Show me you are not the fool ... and list the crimes that have been revealed.
