6. I suspect many in Congress were duped. An interesting question would be, who, knew the truth.

If they knew the truth, they should share the same fate as Bush.

What punishment we give to those who were duped is difficult to say.
If they were not negligent in their duties, it's hard to punish them.
If they were negligent, they deserve some amount of culpability.

A follow-up question, for me to answer, is the following:
were the Congress people, who were duped,
negligent, and therefore somewhat culpable,
because they let this policy get rammed through?
It's subjective, to me, how to answer the question,
if we are convinced we must pass legislation quickly,
how fast is too fast. I can't argue we should never act quickly.
Then again, does legislation passed quickly usually lead to bad results?
