Obama Should Worry About the Bush Family Tentacles Undermining His Plans

Have you noticed the clamor to hold Bush and, presumably the Neocons, accountable for torture? All well and good, and it is a judicial imperative, but it's also smoke and mirrors. The BIGGER crime, the one that those clamoring for justice are blatantly ignoring yet TOWERS over the criminality of the use of torture was the invasion of Iraq under false pretenses. Bush and Company lied and lied again and again to make that invasion happen, and the magnitude of THAT crime, with tens - and more likely hundreds - of thousands of deaths of innocent people and the destruction of a country far outweighs the injustice perpetrated by the gang and their torturous ways. Not to excuse the torture, because that indeed should be prosecuted, but let's not allow the FAR BIGGER crime to be hidden behind this clamor.
