Brecher and Smith at Alternet.org opine:

"If so, it would answer one of the great mysteries of 2007. The Democrats, once in control of Congress, had the courage to pursue cutoff of funds for the Iraq war, even though the Bush administration was happy to take advantage of their effort by characterizing it as failure to support the troops. The obvious companion strategy would have been to conduct intensive investigations to show that the entire Bush project has been to subvert law and Constitutional government in the interests of aggrandizing power nationally and internationally.

"But Congressional Democrats have systematically avoided serious investigation of Bush administration lawlessness, and so far have retreated from using the power of contempt when the Bush officials have refused to respond to subpoenas.

"Could this be because some Democratic leaders in effect colluded in Bush administration crimes -- knew about them but failed to report them?"

General Taguba maintains in his comments on the report "Broken Laws, Broken Lives":

"This story is not only written in words: It is scrawled for the rest of these individuals' lives on their bodies and minds. Our national honor is stained by the indignity and inhumane treatment these men received from their captors."

Congress returns from its recess, notwithstanding Rep. Conyers continuing his work, to a full schedule of votes and committee hearings. Clinton's senate trial was on Jan. 8th. It is vital that the precedents this administration has set for us be stained by the impeachment process, or we are all torturers.

And it is clear that Speaker Pelosi is not qualified to preside over this unfolding rebirth of the republic, this new unity. Resign, Speaker Pelosi. Or face war crimes charges yourself next year. Resign.
