20/20 Hindsight Just Gives You A Clearer View Of Your Own Ass

Aw, Jeez -

WASHINGTON (AFP) Two-thirds of Americans favor investigating whether the George W. Bush administration overstepped legal boundaries in its "war on terror," according to a poll released Thursday by USA Today and Gallup.

A majority of respondents said a probe should be launched into allegations that the Bush team used torture to interrogate terror suspects.

Investigators also should look into the former president's program of wiretapping US citizens without first securing court-issued warrants, respondents said.

About four respondents in 10 polled by USA Today (38 percent) favored criminal investigations, while about a quarter (24 percent) said they want an investigation without criminal charges being filed.

Some one-third of those polled (34 percent) said they want nothing done at all, the pollsters said.

Love the quotation-mark treatment of war on terror. You know, because the Bushies were off in their own little demented make-believe land waging it.

I tell you truly that the following is going to happen:

1.) There's going to be another big attack some time soon.

2.) In its aftermath, the survivors are going to be howling that the Bush Administration didn't do enough to stop it.

You mark my words.

So these people want to investigate Bush for interrogation techniques and yet the Obama administration has just said it will continue the same techniques....can we investigate Obama now, too?

Why are these people have their panties in a bunch over torture? Do they realize that if these terror suspects had the chance, they'd do worse to us?

I'm ready to scream.

My guess is The One will quietly ignore any drive to "investigate" the previous Administration, realizing that The One may need those tools sometime soon...
