The worst part is that Bush and Cheney still remain free from investigation and prosecution.

As if neither man had not done anything wrong.

And we are allowing this to occur.

They are living scot-free of their ignominy.

They have not been left to hang dry (or just hang) for their Iraq war.

Bush stood on the 9/11 rubble and had his spontaneous, blowhorn moment that bathed America in patriotic and rhetorical colors of red, white, and blue.

His smirks, bad English, and lies came later.

America was ready and willing to fight.

Dick and George were ready to prevaricate.

Media attention was not very close or critical back then.

Congress let Bush and Dick do just as they wished.

Bush and Dick were able to "Get away with murder," as the savage saying goes.

The Patriot Act (written well before 9/11 and ready "to go") was not read by Congress, but it was immediately voted upon and passed.

The under-investigated causes and effects of September 11, 2001 are now amply and conveniently replaced with indiscretions by our fine senators and congressmen, and with untimely deaths of stars and superstars.

It's pathetic and sad.

What Shotgun Dick and King George did before the Iraq war is just as egregious and wrong as what they did after their shock and awe began.

The attention on the things that Cheney did with regard to the C.I.A. is of less importance than what he and Bush did days before---the day of---and in the days following 9/11.

There still needs to be a very independent investigation of all of their words and acts which fabricated their reasons (treasons) to invade and bomb Iraq.

Not just torture, domestic surveillance, the "outing" of Valerie Plame etc. etc. etc. etc etc etc.

Maybe after the economy bounces back the Democrats will have enough courage to get this ball "rolling".

But probably not.

In the meantime, Dick, stay out of Spain.

And George, have a taxi ready and running to take you to the airport so you that you can catch your plane and go quickly to Chaco, Paraguay.
