    Lock him in a room with Obama, throw one broken pool cue in between them, and tell them only one of them can be pardoned.

    Re: What to Do with G.W. Bush?

    It's intellectually dishonest to hold Bush criminally responsible for the Iraq war and not apply the same standard to all of the democrat politicians who were for the war (possibly before they were against it.). Did Bush honestly think Saddam had a WMD program he could reconstituted at any time? Yes. Did early every single foreign intelligence agency think the same thing? Did he honestly feel America was a sitting duck as long as Saddam was in power making a major WMD attack a matter of when, not if?

    I don't like the Bush bashing and think its unfair but I would support a South Africa style truth and reconciliation hearing explaining how we ended up in the mess we're in with the Middle East rooted in oil starting with the covert overthrow of the first democratically elected government of Iran in order to install a puppet dictator to give us their oil. This led to the Iranian hostage crisis, our support for Saddam Hussein' s war with Iran using the wmds we probably gave him, Iran contra and all the alternative energy suppression in the interest of no completion for oil interests and how that ultimately led to 9/11. Can't blame all that on Bush. Eisenhower, Kennedy, Nixon, Carter, Reagan and Bush 42 plus OPEC, the oil industry and the car industry all created the disaster Bush inherited and the average America is clueless to the history.

    If we allow our Presidents to be tried internationally for anything our democratic/republic will be over. No future POTUS would be willing to make any decisions.

    Except for the fact that the US and the UK knew he didn't have any WMDs clear back in 1998 when the UN was about to lift the sanctions.

    It's not because John McCain doesn't care. It's because John McCain doesn't get it.

    I have a better idea. Instead of focusing on a past president, how about these alleged non partisan blue ribbon elitists go jump in a ****ing fire? Sounds good to me.

    I know! No matter how much we try to change the subject and whitewash history (), people keep on bring it up like they expect some kind of accountability or something!
