I don't understand. I have always thought that America was a Country based on the rule of LAW. As citizens we are expected... no, REQUIRED to follow the laws laid down by our government. Choosing NOT to follow the law is called a CRIME. The penalty for a crime varies depending on weather it is enforced by the state or the federal government and it's severity. The question is, how can we as parents, teachers and ordinary citizens, expect ALL citizens to accept the laws laid out by society if those laws are not enforced EQUALLY? If a citizen confesses to a crime, is it not our government's OBLIGATION to at least investigate that citizen?
The time has come for Attorney General Eric Holder to institute a THROUGH investigation of George W. Bush for his ADMITTED approval of the use of TORTURE of prisoners of the United States of America.
- The President of the United States
I have always heard that America was a Country built on the Rule of LAW and that ALL citizens were to be treated EQUALLY. If that concept is valid, how can ANYONE who confesses to a crime be allowed to simply walk away without any repercussions? As an American citizen and tax payer, I feel that it is imperative that the Attorney General begin an investigation into the admitted CRIMINAL activities of former President George W. Bush. During Mr. Bush's recent book tour, he has repeatedly ADMITTED to authorizing the water-boarding of several prisoners held by the US military. Water-boarding has ALWAYS been considered to be a form of TORTURE, which is a crime. It is not only 'cruel and unusual' punishment and therefor unconstitutional, but is also against International Law. Can we, as Americans, allow ANY CITIZEN'S CRIMINAL ACT to be simply dismissed because of that citizens' position? We agree with Amnesty International and others who say NO. The time has come to investigate George W. Bush and any other member of his Administration who is suspected of criminal activity. Thank you.
