1. Probably futile, but needed to be done.

3. I never expected Bush and his band of marauders would ever be put on trial

 

in this country. But I had hoped that what we now know about the decision to go to war in Iraq, the failure to pursue our avowed enemies in Afghanistan and the wasteful prosecution of both wars in terms of men (and women), materiel and cold hard cash (remember the billions that turned up missing in Iraq) would lead us to be more retrospective.

This should have led us to attempt to understand how and why we made these mistakes. Many would say these decisions were driven solely by policies of GWB and Darth Vader Cheney. I suggest that while they may have been driving these decisions, their was more to see than meets the eye.

Will we ever learn?

5. We have learned well, learned that the well-connected are free to commit any crime

 

The specific crimes being:
Setting up torture camps - a clear violation of the War Crimes Act.
Lying to Congress about Iraq having nuclear weapons - a criminal violation since 1857.
Conspiring to commit war via WMD lies - treason.
Illegally wiretapping Americans - a felony.

6. Unpunished mass murders

There is no doubt yet USA lacks the will to face our own hypocrisy.
We are more likely to hang someone for being gay than for mass murder of foreigners. The shame Bush/Cheney brought to our nation will never be forgotten.
