WHY On Earth Are We Debating With WAR CRIMINALS?!?
......................

So let us be very clear. The war criminal Dick Cheney presided over the worst lapse in national security since Pearl Harbor, resulting in the deaths of more than 3,000 people. This rank incompetent failed to get bin Laden at Tora Bora, and then dragged the US on false pretenses into a war in Iraq, empowering Iran's dictatorship, and killing another 5,000 more Americans on a wild goose chase. He presided over the deaths of more than 8,000 Americans, and tens of thousands of Iraqis during his criminally incompetent years in office.

On the other hand, the man who abolished torture as soon as he took office, Barack Obama, captured and killed Osama bin Laden, and captured a massive trove of intelligence, more than two years later. No Americans died in the operation.

What on earth are we debating? How have these delusional maniacs managed to even get us onto this turf? Because they have to. Because when the full truth of these past years are fully in focus, they will be revealed as some of the greatest criminals ever to have wielded power in America.

1. The Reality
If Bush was fully prosecuted for his crimes, he would be serving a life without parole sentence in ADX Supermax.

3. Exactly. I don't want to debate with War Criminals nor do I care
what Bush, Cheney, Condi, etc have to say. They deserve NO "credit" for anything but I'd like to see them tried for war crimes and punished for Treason when found they are found guilty as they most certainly are.

Delusional is an excellent word for them. I keep thinking of the insanity of the Bush years. Surreal! I thought the Bush WH was could be likened to a family unit where the parents were smoking crack and the children were complete and utter victims of the insane, horrible choices made by the crazy people in charge; to me, that was what it was like on a massive scale with Americans suffering the consequences of BushCo behavior. Disgusting.

I am so sick of people asking these criminals what they think! I don't care. What's more, I could care less about Bush's tantrums I don't have to endure them any longer...THANK GOD!
