18. I think that Congress needs to be more specific.
Obviously, the amendment to the Military Commissions Act was not clear enough for Bush or Mukasey.

I agree on impeachment and conviction. However, the conviction needs to take place after the 2008 election so that we can make sure we get a promise from the next president that the current office holders and their co-conspirators will be brought to justice in and after 2009. I do not want to see Bush go the way of Nixon. Bush and his co-conspirators need to be brought to justice and tried fairly in a court of law for torture and their many other crimes. Impeachment and removal are not sufficient to educate the American people about what has happened and why. I don't particularly care whether these guys actually go to prison or are punished. What I want is to have all the information and testimony on the record for the American people to see. The crimes of these people are horrendous, and they are motivated by greed and hunger for power. They have used the wonderful kindness and religious, trusting nature of us good American people for purposes that we the American people oppose in our hearts. I do not want to see an impeachment and Senate trial that ends in Bush, et al. being replaced by someone who will pardon them. We need, for once and for all, to learn the truth about the corruption in our government, about how our government has been virtually kidnapped by special interests and held for ransom.
