    ...about the Iraq War was that it was all perpetrated with impunity.

    Today, the media gives anti-war leftists a little pat on the fucking head like - there there, you actually got one right. Actually, we got it all right. Many war crimes were conspired and committed and yet still these ass holes of journalism remain asleep at the wheel. "Oh well, what's done is done, why would we want to bother with holding Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld etc etc responsible?" Why would we want to bother our current President with holding these people accountable and enforcing laws?

    We need to drive a steak in the heart of "the unitary executive". This can only be done by prosecuting the last douche bag that tried it and making our legal code crystal clear, even for the right wing turds that criminal put on the bench.
