Steve Soto also weighs in this morning with a great post.
Five more died yesterday in Obama’s unimpeachable war, a war whose deadliest days were the last 90.It took forty years for a repeat of Nixonian politics because Nixon and his crew of felons were held accountable. If the Bush/Cheney cabal is not held accountable the felonies of the last six and a half years will become politics as usual.
I said in a post several years ago that there are hazards in rushing past accountability to the high ground of Liebermanesque bipartisanship or even nonpartisanship. Transgressions are papered over, wrongs are not undone, and the perpetrators and those they serve see that they can get away with it and maintain the benefits of their misdeeds while those who suffered are plowed under as collateral damage.
They also see that a political party and its leaders have no stomach to stop them the next time.
