President Bush, these brave (and not paid nearly enough) men were DOING THEIR JOB!
PARDON THEM NOW!!!!!!!!!!
A pardon for these men doesn't fit in with the President's immigration agenda.
True. What I'd like to know is when was Mexico made our 51st state?
Cui bono? Perhaps some investigation into the prosecutor and/or Judge Kathleen for suborning perjury (oops, granting "immunity" for testimony) might reveal something about a sordid miscarriage of justice.
What I'd like to know is the whole story. Who persued finding the drug smuggler in Mexico, provided immunity for testimony, and for what reason?
Bush could have stopped this nonsense a long time ago if he wanted to.
Does it not seem like only those who have big $ connections seem to wrangle a pardon? ...like when Clinton was giving or selling pardons at the end of his term? Here we have a genuine miscarriage of justice that seems to be falling on deaf ears in the Bush Administration. Of course no news person will ask a question to raise the issue to the highest levels. ...plain disappointing, disheartening, and disgusting!
Why didn't the President pardon them immediately?

Thank you for another piece of the puzzle. I too am still persuing information to lead me to the answer that completes the whole puzzle. I can assume a lot by your good work here, but we all know about what happens to those whom Ass/u/me.
