(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.

Stupidest article (and government) ever.
Based upon your name, I wouild have thought you would remember Van Johnson the actor. Caine Mutiny?
I think you’re right. It all goes back to Vince - and, of course, Hillary.
I would never want to cross the guys over in Virginia. Not a good health plan.
GWB should be behind bars for destroying the Conservative movement — portraying himself as a Conservative and then giving us the Farm Bill, Prescription Drug Bill, attempt at amnesty, bailouts....
Congress went Dem in 2006 because of his out-of-control, and in-no-way Conservative, spending binge. And Zero is in the White House because of him.
But, of all things, GWB should *not* be behind bars for the War on Terror. For that, he gets an A+ in my book.
Thank you for keeping us all safe for eight years, President Bush, and taking the fight where it belongs — to the terrorist scum overseas.
Too bad your domestic policy was almost indistinguishable from Zero’s though. It’s now nigh on impossible to promote Conservatism today when people say, “Well, George Bush was a Conservative, and he did such-and-such.”
Yep, that's where it came from. It was buried somewhere in the deep recesses of my aging mind.
Judging by his track record-—Dubya can cooperate with the dictators, show some compassion to them, backstab some truly conservative leaders (think the Specter endorsement over Toomey) etc.
These fools are determined to take us down the 3rd World path.
I miss President Bush so much.
He loved our country and he stood strong against terrorism.
This is right out of the handbook of every dictator who ever lived: prosecute the former leaders with trumped up charges in order to show how great and “fair” that you are. We are rapidly going down the same path of 1933 Germany.
Being placed behind bars is for criminals, not those with whom some in society are simply displeased with their perspectives and beliefs.
Leave it to liberals, though, who insist upon feeling sorry for criminals more than the victims to insist a former President who took actions to defend the nation be placed behind bars, while they would also glorify Michael Jackson and O J Simpson for any contrived reason whatsoever.
It would mean war!
It's extremely unlikely, but the Obama administration is taking its first steps along a path that could lead in that direction......well, they may *think* it leads in that direction, but it actually leads to something *quite different*. And they can count on it.
I think that BHO and his DemoNazi cronies should all be thrown in jail for the crap they are doing to this Great Country.
Could someone don the rubber suit and pass out some Depends at Kos before they fry their server?
Amen! If they even try to put President George W Bush under arrest, I think that might be the signal for the “end game” to begin.
Show me one real conservative in the GOP aside Palin an I’ll agree with you.
Bite your tongue!
when pigs fly.
The problem is that millions of idiots are hanging on his every word and move as if he were Christ himself.
They already got Scooter.
I’m suffering from a touch of old-timer’s disease myself.
I’ll settle for hung, shot or deported to some third-world hellhole.
Hang them alphabetically or by the numbers - either way works for me.
There is no way he will ever end up in jail. Armed Texans will not allow it. Period.
Remember - as long as you have a rifle, you STILL have a vote.
This is what CNN laughingly calls “journalism” now.
Cannot even imagine the fire storm that would be set off if ZERO/Holder tried to go after Pres Bush or VP Cheney. This is going to get nasty as more and more people wake up to the fraud in the WH.
Middle America will not take any attempt at a takeover by ZERO lying down and we will vote in 2010!
No, President Bush did NOTHING to deserve anything like what the Bush Derangement Syndrome people dream of doing to him...but they would love to keep him and VP Cheney front and center for as long as possible in order to mask from attention their many crimes against America.
THAT is the only reason they would pursue any kind of action against President Bush.
But should that occur, they need to understand, Americans cannot be brainwashed - the sleeping Giant is awake and hopefully will not go to sleep again!
Might not be “helful” but the facts are what they are...pesky factual entities that get in the way of mindless devotion...and all in all Bush deserves very little of that.
“Show me one real conservative in the GOP aside Palin an Ill agree with you.”
eh? agree with me about what.
Amen, Mr. Silverback. AMEN!
This is good vs evil, and President Bush is on the side of GOOD.
Attacking him here, and not seeing the unconstitutional horror of even the threat of putting him in jail is opposing everything we value in this nation.
I think Eric Holder is using the AG office to pay back every white man possible — while looking to turn loose as many black criminals as possible... clearly our AG is a bitter racist.
The fact that it's not clear makes you a very scary person.
What's making your decision to take sides so difficult?
CNN is absolutely pathetic.
You will not see another free election until after the next American Civil War. Remember who you’re dealing with.
...And for a long time I have feared and believed that is exactly what he plans!
But will the votes count correctly in every state? Remember Soros has is SoS project to turn the Secretary of State in every state into a democrat and the electronic voting machines in many states are manufactured in Venezuela and heaven knows how they program them... everyone in every state in every precinct should demand a return to optical scanning voting... it works here, is fast and you stand and watch as they tally your vote through the scanner...
A group of typical, concerned Democrats gathers outside San Francisco City Hall to excitedly discuss the latest CNN staff editorial about the possibility of George Bush going to jail.
Soros is running into problems. He sent people in to OK to rally against our SoS — only one minor problem. Our SoS has nothing to do with the elections. Our Election Board Secretary is appointed by the head of the OK Senate who is a Republican. We are not the only state.
Lot going on behind the scenes by some GOP Chairs against the fraud in elections. No money in states to buy any machines that are programmable. OK votes optical scanning which is probably why we went so heavily for McCain and against Obama. One nice thing about the recession.
