  •  We should have had a truth commission (7+ / 0-)

    similar to the Watergate investigation by congress. It would have cleared the air and put us on a footing of basic information based on reality  as opposed to political ideology and backfilling to cover the reality.

    I don't believe that prosecutions for crimes are politically possible, but a truth commission would have served the purpose of nailing the facts and bringing shame to those who participated but have a free pass now for torture and lies.

    Yes we did, yes we will. President Obama
