George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld covered up that hundreds of innocent men were sent to the Guantánamo Bay prison camp because they feared that releasing them would harm the push for war in Iraq and the broader War on Terror, according to a new document obtained by The Times.
How much more will we need to learn about how illegal their actions were before someone gets arrested?

Why are conservatives such hypocrites? I saw my crazy uncle today and learned that he isn’t just crazy, but extremely dumb too. He acts like he is an expert on everything from politics, sports, martial arts, capitalism to common generic knowledge. When in fact he known nothing and doesn’t even have a job. He is 40. He is anti government & Obama & Socialism and yet he loves America. Sounded rather hypocritical to me. He was claiming he trains in BJJ 3 times a week. When in fact he looks like a scroat druggy that abuses my grandma. I hope he moves to Wyoming for his guns, motorcycle riding and tax free land. Please free us from his stupidity. Sorry about the rant. Venting.
He is also an avid Fox News watcher… Go figure.
I think it doesn’t matter how much we “find out”, nothing is going to happen. Obama’s made it clear that he will protect the “Office of the President”.
Obama is legally obligated to protect the office of the President. He can’t launch investigations into his predecessors actions. The Attorney General can and has launched investigations into GBay, torture, etc. It’s probably why we are hearing about it now. All Obama can do is turn over documents, which he has. Notice that Bush and Cheyney have stopped bad-mouthing Obama and they have laywer’ed up. Even Rove has fallen silent.
We should see something in the next few months.
Of course Rove has fallen silent because he is GUILTY.
You’re right. I’d forgotten that.
Yeah, read a book called The Dark Side by Jane Mayer. It pretty much tells about how the military intelligence figured out that most gitmo prisoners are innocent, and a shitload more of facepalmisms.
