50. The information Criminal Investigations need is shredded, deep sixed
Edited on Thu Dec-06-07 10:51 AM by KoKo01
hard drives, shredding trucks and "Geeks on Call" have done their work. And when they leave they will take whatever they haven't so far managed to erase. So, how does this help any Civil Suits going forward? If Congress could begin Impeachment hearings they could get access to what Bush is stonewalling on. But, they won't. They just keep writing "stern letters" which are ignored. Subpoena's aren't honored so Congress has given away all it's authority which means every President who comes after will have the the stonewalling tools Bush has used to keep Congress and the Courts out of their business.

Thinking that a "benevolent Dem President" will give back the power the Bushies have is underestimating what our Democrats would be willing to do. There's little difference in the parties these days and a Progressive will not be elected.

That's the worry. While I could accept what you say on one level ...I just don't think we can trust anything to move forward once the Bushies are out. There are still the Conservative Think Tanks and the Regent Graduates and Constitutionalists that Bushies have installed in every corner of our Government. Those folks won't be leaving and they aren't going to be turning over any information to Civil Lawyers from Crew or the International Courts. They will be in government undermining any new Administration along with the M$M which is even more controlled than it was in even 2004 when we might have had a chance of getting a Dem in who would turn Government away from the Bush Policies and start a clean out.

With the media owned and Ruppert Murdoch buying more and more of it...there will be nothing done. As much as many of us would want to "believe" ....we can see where "believing" has gotten us for 7 long years.
