Recent Wikileaks disclosures underscore what so many have been saying that there is an obligation of the Obama Administration to investigate and, if warranted by the evidence, take action.

Many political officeholders and strategists have long contended that it would be absurd and impractical to ignite a political time bomb such as investigating and potentially recommending that criminal action be taken against members of the Bush Administration.

This grave issue should not be decided based on political expediency. International law and the United States Constitution mandate action if the evidence warrants it.

Let the Republican-Tea Party members, not necessarily in that order, scream at the tops of their lungs. The louder that they shriek the greater the indication that justice is being served.

Apart from one U.S. based website, Just Foreign Policy, the issue of Iraqi deaths has been essentially a point of silence. On those occasions when they are discussed a highly paid Murdoch-New World Order propaganda mouthpiece like Bill O'Reilly will howl that the numbers cited are wrong.

On the Just Foreign Policy site the source revealing the numbers is the highly respected British medical journal Lancet, which has been around much longer than O'Reilly and is not a paid organ of Rupert Murdoch. The issue of how the current figure was arrived at is carefully explained.

It is time to mention that current figure. As of the time when this article is being written the deaths caused by the U.S. invasion stand at 1,421,933.
