Will Obama ever be able to remove the torture issue from the media now?

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/04/26/opinion/26kristof.html?ref=opinion
Mr. Obama is right that we have to focus on the economy and move ahead. But one of our most precious possessions is our moral core, our value system, and when you’ve lost your way it’s important to retrace your steps to understand where you went astray. Come on, Mr. Obama, let’s not delay that process.

  • The Bush administration (whoever was involved) need to be prosecuted.

    You realize that would include every incumbent member of congress?

  • The Bush administration (whoever was involved) need to be prosecuted. You don't let criminals run free! At least you shouldn't.

  • Along with them would go the dems too.They all knew and now the memos are cherry picked.I don't see how stringing it all out in the media is going to amount to anything good for us or our troops who are abroad serving right now.

    Most of them have never been charged with anything! So now we're going to go with - guilty because we said so?

    No, it would involve the administrators that ordered torture. Condi Rice did so even before the WH tried to sell it as legal. Then Rumsfield and Cheney sent some memos as well.....It was illegal the whole time and it was done so with an agenda ...tying Iraq to 9/11...there was NO link (as the CIA had already told Bush because they had investigated that for the previous 8 years). So they already had the intention for an invasion and were trying to get the "evidence" after the fact..Problem= there was NO truth to it
