Did John McCain get all excited and investigate when GWB had any of his 11 embassy attacks?

I don't recall John McCain jumping up and down and calling for Senate investigations when people were killed during Shrubby's tenure.

2. No and I wish DUers would would call him what he has always been: a

mean racist. We need to remember this even when he's playing to our side of the aisle. He can't refute the facts that point to his seething hatred of blacks in particular.

4. I also think it is sour grapes for losing in 2008.

You known damn well that McCain HATES Obama (besides being black) for simply losing to him in 2008. It must be pretty tough to work that hard at the election horse race and come up empty handed. Plus you look like a loser to the whole world.

So this current election was McCain's next best hope for sweet revenge by McCain. Of course, Obama won however. So McCain is now trying to dig stuff up, make stuff up, tear down a loyal employee like Susan Rice, etc.

3. I think this is the a big difference in the parties.

When the Democrats took Congress back in 2006 there was a decision not to investigate war crimes by the Bush administration and think they thought it would involve wasting money and they would never get Bush to admit any mistakes like even the outing of Valerie Plame and the head which rolled was not Cheney.

5. President Obama

 

is still in power and he still has his Attorney General. The Republicans and John McCain better walk softly. What you cite can be reversed. I don't know if the Republicans want to continue tread down that road. The President is not dumb. They also hold the Senate. He also can appoint Judges.

To get to the point, some countries internationally want to prosecute the Bush Administration for War Crimes. His administration is out of Power and that can happen. John McCain and Lindsey Graham are not clean themselves. We can also talk about torture under the Geneva Convention. The United States under the Bush Administration did what it wanted to do because we have the most powerful military in the World. The Obama Administration chose to move on but if push come to shove, we do still have all the cards if McCain and Graham want to continue down their destructive road. And we can also reopen 9\11 because I believe the Bush Administration was negligent. So does McCain,Graham,King and Guiliano want to continue?

6. You forget, though

when those 11 attacks occurred during the Bush regime, they were all the fault of Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton or Barack Obama. When the attacks happened under Obama, it was all directly the fault of Obama and Susan Rice.
