A "confidential" April 17, 2009, cable sent from the US embassy in Madrid to the State Department—one of the 251,287 cables obtained by WikiLeaks—details how the Obama administration, working with Republicans, leaned on Spain to derail this potential prosecution.

Yeah, but this now explains why W has been so silent on Obama.

Makes perfect sense now.

There’s no wow. Why are we still in Iraq, when he would pull out if he could?

Same reason. Buma’s not in total charge.

neither of the Bushes blasted current presidents... it doesn’t pay nor does it show any kind of class..... and they are smart enough to know that. Clinton is also careful about what he says.... obamanation has continually been a shift the blame person his entire life.

I don’t trust Mother Jones. Actually, I am to the point of not trusting anyone I do not know personally without research. It’s just part of trying to get to the Truth and live a truth-filled life (for me).

W was always silent about everything. He doesn’t know any other way. He wouldn’t have bitched about the new guy whoever he was.

Yes this is wow - because now we know W was silent on Obama because they saved his butt from prosecution, it never had anything to do with being classy or the other pap fed to the public.

I couldn’t disagree with you more... but, I see that your mind won’t be changed as far as the Bushes are concerned anymore than mine... let’s agree to disagree.... I do agree on a lot of other things you agree on :)

Complete meltdown at DU, HP, and that site right now. Some of them are almost in tears.

This wikileaks thing is going to be the biggest story of our time bar none.

If President Bush could be tried “by other countries” for war crimes, I think Obama knows anything he does wrong, opens the door for them to come after him. Obama realizes these other countries don't just hate Bush, they hate America and allowing Bush to be tried will put him in peril as well as future presidents. (Conservatives have been saying this all along)
