I find it deplorable, and meta-political, that Senate republicans have been seeking to block President Obama's Attorney General nominee, Eric H. Holder, Jr.; they want assurances that the Justice Department will not pursue prosecutions of Bush administration officials for crimes they did commit. I understand that we need to focus our energies on the current crises: the failing economy, the war in Iraq, and our relations with Iran. However, these Republicans clearly want to set a precedent that crimes committed by those in power are above the law, and will face no consequences whatsoever. I know people will tell me to get over it, that it has happened before and it will happen again and again; that doesn't make it 'okay'. If you're not outraged by this political bullshit, then you're clearly not paying attention.
Bush administration policies and practices carry zero accountability.
