    It's just such a huge issue, I don't see us moving past it until we deal with it.

    •  We managed to ignore FISA violations, (1+ / 0-)

      and that affected all Americans - not just a few thousand little brown people.  You & I won't move past the torture issue, but everyone else has.  However, unless we investigate or prosecute torture it will happen again (and it is currently happening at Baghram).

      •  I'm not entirely convinced (1+ / 0-)

        that's all unrelated...

        the issue, at it's basic form, is the two-tiered justice system, the placement of a few rich and powerful Americans above the law.

        I think that may be a trickier issue to sweep under the rug than the nobility would like.
