93. Truth Commissions are only appropriate in post civil-war situations, when trials would spark
further violence and make those convicted "martyrs". That is not the situation here. The Bush-Cheney gang will be in no position to resist prosecution after January. Dubya and Dick sure as hell aren't martyrs. They have no armies of their own. So, just convene a Grand Jury and indict them, already, like any other criminals.

This is still a nation under law, isn't it, or are we ruled by a junta? If that's the case, we have to purge all of them, including the Supreme Court, and start fresh.
