    That Barack Obama is an even worse failure for knowing W's crimes, and not trying him for them. Justice would be for both to be judged by an International War Crimes Tribunal that is not beholden to American interests. That is why I detest people who call themselves Democrats instead of liberals first. No Liberal will tolerate Republican-lite without calling it out.
     

    Workers of the world, unite! You have nothing to lose but your shackles. It is by the picket line and direct action that true freedom will be won, not by electing people who promise to screw us less than the other guy.

      As much as the thought of W and his cronies being tried for their crimes delights me (I particularly enjoy picturing them in orange jumpsuits), it would have completely derailed Obama's first term, meaning no Lilly Ledbetter, no Affordable Care Act, no new START treaty, no repeal of DADT, no GM, etc. ... etc. ...

      Remember, there is no statute of limitations on war crimes.
