Conyers Proposes Truth Commission

What I'd really like to see is BushCo facing war crimes tribunals. That is very, very, very unlikely to happen - at least here in the United States. However, a "National Commission on Presidential War Powers and Civil Liberties" of the sort John Conyers has proposed - one not stacked with D.C. insiders - would be a useful institution too. Read the report here at TPM. This will require that the Democrats get some gumption. They need to recognize that the crimes Bush, Rice, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Ashcroft, Gonzalez, Powell and their various enablers and minions have had and will continue to have grave negative consequences for the country. Just 'turning the page' on our criminals is not an option. (Thanks Joerg!)
