When you ask for the prosecution of everyone who knew

Do you realize that includes everyone who was in congress at the time? Specifically, Senators Obama, Biden and Clinton along with every other member of the senate and house with a D after their name in 2004-8?

Do you really want everyone prosecuted, or just the people you didn't like anyway?

  • How do you prosecute for something that wasn't defined as illegal till this Presidency? If this is the case, should we go back through the year and open up all the cans of worms? Obama and his liberal lunatics in Washington have made a fuss about something many of them agreed with, and wanted MORE done in 2002. I hope this bites them in their hypocritical a$$es

  • I'm sure it will come down to the prosecuting only those who REFUSED to participate in the "pay to play" game that is American politics! ;o)

  • If you do the crime, you should do the time, no matter who you are. It would be hard seeing someone I liked prosecuted, but I stand by what I just said too.

  • Why I posted the question about Obama now needing to keep the torture issue out of the media. Now that Cheney spoke up, and Pelosi acted like a fool, more delving into the issue is being done than what Obama had once anticipated. The dumbass should have listened to his own specialists that he appointed that argued against the prosecution just days before he flip flopped. But, alas, he knows all doesn't he!

  • Congress knew including Obama, Biden, Clinton and Pelosi.lol They did nothing and instead of trying to do something exploited the situation to further the Democrat party. They don't care about torture just want to take the heat off Obama for a while. Looks like it could backfire on him.lol Maybe he will be forced to admit the entire time he was a Senator he did nothing.lol

  • There is nothing wrong with bringing the issue forward and finding out who were the responsible parties. With all the screaming about "morals' and "responsibility" in this country, why not expose the whole mess. Or are the only ones expected to have morals and responsibilities people on food stamps and PA?

  • Why do people think that government officials are above the law. First we have those who actually perpetrated the plan and orders, then you have those who had first-hand knowledge. Those people should be prosecuted. Did you know that it is a crime to lie to Congress? So, with appropriate evidence proving that someone knew what they were saying to Congress was a lie, that person or persons should be prosecuted. The people with CACI who the government contracted to do interrogation (under the contractual lie of providing "clerical" and "IT" services), who tortured, they should be prosecuted. The military personnel who were supposed to be providing supervision to the interrogators and did nothing about torture even though they knew it was illegal to do so, they should be prosecuted.

  • No one is above the law. The Constitution states that all men are created equal and that goes far beyond mere race or sex, that also means men holding a position of authority are to treated no different for a crime than someone not holding position who commits the same crime. We have no problem prosecuting a rich person for theft any differently than we do a poor person for theft. There should be no difference in how those in our government are treated when it comes to crime. These people broke our law and they deserve to be prosecuted for their crime. Did we not prosecute those considered Nazis for their crimes of torture? Those people were government officials right down to 16 year old camp guards. Did we not prosecute the Japanese for torture? We as citizens need to stop allowing our government to do things that are illegal an unethical, cover it up and choose scape goats to blame it on. We need equal justice.
