Could George W. Bush end up behind bars?
CNN.com ^ | 09/04/09 | Staff

Posted on 09/04/2009 3:02:28 PM PDT by OldDeckHand

(CNN) -- Could George W. Bush or some of his top aides end up behind bars?

It's extremely unlikely, but the Obama administration is taking its first steps along a path that could lead in that direction, with the investigation of Central Intelligence Agency interrogators involved in the war on terror.

"You don't know where these things are going to end up," former CIA agent Peter Brookes told me. "They could go to very high levels in the government."

The probe will focus on whether interrogators exceeded their instructions and broke the law when, for example, they choked a prisoner until he lost consciousness or threatened another one with a gun and a power drill.

I think what's worse is what's going on in his former Governor/brother's state of FL!!!

I want to hear from all the FReepers who have been sliming CA for the past decade after they read this about FL!!! (Not that two wrongs make a right, or anything)

You're assuming there will be elections in 2010: I'm not so sure of that anymore. Notice how shabbily the Democratic and RINO representatives and senators treated their own constituents during those town hall meetings? It's almost as if they know something that we don't and feel like what we say & want doesn't matter any more. Think about it. If they know that this crew will declare martial law before November of next year, what do they care what you & I feel about them? They'll be ensconced for life, just like president-for-life Obama.

I think the Zero administration is just throwing a bone to their foam-at-the-mouth moonbats at Kos, etc. to regain favor with the communist riffraff. They can’t possibly be serious.

If they were to be stupid enough to actually try to go forward with this BS the RATS will run into a sh!tstorm that will make the anger at townhall meetings look like a girl scout bake sale.

Exactly right. The only reason this happening is that Obama needs to throw a bone to left wing wackos to make up for the fact that he is screwing them with no public option and that he is no different than Bush on either Iraq or Afghanistan.

Ok, this is Dimwit reasoning. Bozo claims that Holder can act without Bozo's approval and that Bozo can't stop him from doing what he wants(pertaining to the CIA investigation)and I would presume this would hold for all appointees under him but, OTH, Bush is totally responsible for everything anyone working for him did during his Presidency and he can be convicted for it.

Nope, no double standard there!/SAR

Could he end up in jail? Well, in the old USA, a solid NO. But in our new Worker’s Paradise, just consider what happens in other Worker’s Paradises. Yup, show trial. public confession, W and a few thousand others sent to jail for long terms.

It’s social justice, you understand.

I think if they tried that sincerely, it would give them the Arch Duke Ferdinand moment they so anxiously want to provoke. Not that anyone would be assassinated, but it might very well serve as THE pivotal action that sets a flame to the massive pile of kindling that has been growing.

He not only can, he will. Again, ythis is one of the things that the fools who inflicted obama on us brought about when they elected the democrats. Wheather he will be tried here or in the world court, I can’t say but if he lives long enough he will be tried along with Vice President Chenney.

2010 elections? Forget them. ACORN has several billion dollars to ensure that the Democrats win. In addition to that,the Democrats, who never were bashful about committing voter fraud and voter intimidation when President Bush was President now control the White House, both Houses of Congress, and the Department of Justice along with the “news” organizations. Anyone that believes that the 2010 elections will be fair or at least neutral is either: 1. Delusional 2. day dreaming. 3.living in another world 4. in denial.

Military will NEVER go along with the crap. You will see states in Middle America counter anything the socialist throws out.

As long as you have Inhofe, Coburn, Demint, Sessions, Shelby and a host of Congressional people, Obama doesn’t even need to try.

All you have to do is see the outrage his propaganda to speak to students has caused from all spectrums of the voting public. Those handouts by the Ed Department along with the commercial from Hollywood has caused a firestorm that will not be put back in the bottle. People are mad and the Democrat controlled WH and Congress are right in the bullseyes.

"They are really freaking desparate. I would not have given CNN the satisfaction of even posting this garbage. They are distracting for 0bama and you made it breaking news."

I did post the original story because I thought the headline was so outrageous, especially in juxtaposition to the fact that CNN - to date - has yet to post any stories on the Van Johnson controversy.

But, in point of fact, I did not post it in breaking news. I'm not sure how it ended up there, if it was a moderator or another member, but it wasn't me.

This is ridiculous.
Only liberals would even think such a thing, but what goes around comes around.

Obama may want to think about the trend he is setting long and hard.

Especially as he can easily be seen as trying to subvert the constitution from a republic to a socialist state.

We're hardly organized, but we sure as hell are angry and spoiling for a fight.

Just try and NOT have elections. I dare them, cuz hells coming and they're in it's sights.
