58. That would have to involve the victims of America's crimes, yes?
Because it would be beyond arrogant for America to think it could hold such a commission without including those the Bush administration have harmed.

I wonder how the tortured/invaded/occupied/detained/raped/maimed/bombed out will feel about an "America feels good about itself again" commission....because that's all it would be if those who have suffered the crimes of the US government were not allowed to participate. Not allowed to tell the world just what the US government has done to them.

As for me and reconciliation - if the people next door support torture then they may live in the house next to me but they will never be my neighbor.
