Obama must appoint a Special Prosecutor

When is President Obama going to live up to his statement that "no one is above the law".  Refusing to appoint a Special Prosecutor is very close to protecting Bush and Cheney.

And critics of the Bush administration say a truth commission inquiry would probably be a half-measure, that immunity would shoeld lawbreakers.

"This is not about mistakes. This is about fundamental lawbreaking, about the disposal of the Constitution, and about the end of treaties," Michael Ratner, president of the Center for Constitutional Rights, said in a radio interview earlier this month.

Now, a US Congressman is calling for an investigation of the Seymour Hersch allegations that former Vice President Cheney controlled a secret US Military squad that carried out assassinations of foreigners. This against US Law and President Ford's executive order prohibiting any US citizen from doing so. This Must Be Investigated by a Special Prosecutor.

How far outside US law did Cheney go?

Did Cheney use the assassination squad inside the United States?


WE Must all work together to push Congress to investigate, Attorney General Holder to appoint a Special Prosecutor, and Obama to get out of the way and allow the Rule Of Law to prevail.

Was the TV Series "The Unit" based on Cheney's Assassination Squad?
Its story line seems to promote extra constitutional, illegal actions by a secret squad run by a little known general.  Is this series an effort to desensitize Americans to Torture and Assassinations?

No more Ken Starr

That one backfired on the GOP if you ask me.

We don't need to go down that road.  If we do, mark my words, the next Republican Prez will do the same and politics will become even worse than it is now.   We'll be like a third world country where the party that loses power end up in jail regardless of whether or not they did anything wrong.

If someone comes forward and alledges a crime and provides evidence let the Justive Dept handle it under normal channels.  

If not let history judge Bush and Cheney.

Re: Obama must appoint a Special Prosecutor

Sorry, but I always throw-up when a Diary title contains the words "Obama" and "Must".

I stop abruptly at that point and post something like this in response. Now we've wasted a little of each others' time.
