7. "How widespread is the Bush prison system?"
After WWII, We the People were horrified to learn about the widespread system of concentration camps in Europe, where torture and death by the most insidious means were commonplace. We heard, after The War, about the low moral character of the citizens of Germany, and marveled that they "let it happen."

And now, there has been a distessing turning, and we Americans are standing before the bar of justice, metaphorically speaking, and the question is being asked by the world: "How can they let this happen?"

How can we? To our everlasting shame, how can we?

Bush and Cheney should be impeached and removed from office, and then they should be turned over to appropriate authorities for criminal trials. And every little posturing underling they've appointed to public office should likewise be held accountable for their crimes. They have not "made mistakes," they are not working in a difficult-to-understand grey area -- they are complicit in the greatest crime in this nation's history, against its own people. They are a cancer that needs to be cut away from the body politic.

Torture is the first refuge of criminals. Not only is this administration involved in criminality, but every duly-elected Democrat who condones this despicable practice through silence and refusal to stand up to it is guilty, as well. There will be a reckoning.
