(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.

George W. Bush behind bars, like George W. Bush being impeached, is a crazy-leftist fantasy. I don’t think even the Obama administration is stupid enough to try to imprison a former president for his policy decisions.
Go get em :-)
Mine too. Have gun...will travel. Can you just see a tent city of armed patriots on W’s ranch. Libtards are just so stupid. I keep envisioning some little pale panty-waisted guy in his Birkenstocks and Che t-shirt poking a sleeping Pit bull. That Pit bull is waking up and there is going to be a whole lot of wee-weeing going on.
Obama doesn’t have an administration, the administration has him. This guy is in way over his head and he is just doing what the teleprompter tells him
How have you been my long lost friend?
Yo Obambi...turn around is fair play. Don’t go down that rabbit hole lest you find yourself stuck in it.
Did I need to add the sarc' tag?!?
If it does, I can’t wait to get President Clinton and 0bama into jail for their corruption when we get a REAL conservative in the White House next time.
0bama eats poop.
The more I’ve thought about this the more convinced I am voting needs to stay on paper/optical scanner and not electronic machines... too many crooks and too easy to change things....
Exactly! We have the ones that draw lines between arrows — works really good.
You’re talking to a Putin loyalist. Take it for what it’s worth.
I miss GW and First Lady Laura. When will we have that kind of class back on Penn Ave?
That would be the ultimate irony.
Don't look at the takeover of the banking industry!
Do not let your mind wander to the government takeover of the auto industry!
And do not pay any attention to the takeover of the industry, local and commercial, of the producers of the very foodstuffs you sustain yourselves with!
You don't have to bother yourselves with the loss of your very freedom to live, when we can entertain you with "BACK TO THE PAST - LET'S BUST BUSH" brought to you as a kindly diversion by your loving government.
That will be all.
49 ... do I hear ... 48 ... 47 ... commencing countdown until the balance starts to shift upward, independent of Washington.
It most likely is planned as a way to flush people out of the CIA who not Obamamaniacs so that Ob can think that he also owns the CIA. (Funny, the word Obamamaniacs got through spell check. The English language on FR is on to him.)
Obama just opened the door to future administrations doing the same thing to him. Bad kharma.
Inner city gang members typically don’t respond well to being directed or led - they tend to go their own way. Additionally when they shoot it is spray and hope (I would say pray, but not likely) that they hit something. They tend to prefer face to face combat with their gang backing them up.
From 500 yards my .222 is deadly accurate, I don’t waste ammo. One shot, one kill. Their paltry 9’s and .40’s are useless at that range.
Bring em on!
Along with Theodore R. and his cadre of Bush Bashers right here on FR!
No, Bush or Cheney would not end up behind bars...
BUT THE EVENDENTIARY INFORMATION THAT HOLDER OBTAINS IN HIS INVESTIGATION CAN AND MOST LIKELY WILL BE PROVIDED TO A WORLD COURT THAT COULD BRING CHARGES AGAINST THEM, AND IF CONVICTED THEY WOULD BE TARGETS FOR INTERNATIONAL BOUNTY HUNTERS. THEY COULD NEVER LEAVE THE USA FOR FEAR OF SOME COUNTRY ARRESTING THEM AS SOON AS THEY LAND THERE.
One week from today -- Saturday September 12, 2009 -- we will see if the American people have the guts for any of this! If they don't come out now, they never will, IMHO.
NO! As I said upthread, you Bush Bashers are every bit as responsible for that piece of work as ACORN and their vote fraud tactics. Quit blaming President Bush for everything and look in a mirror!
Oh dear God ... another one!
I think that BHO and his DemoNazi cronies should all be thrown in jail for the crap they are doing to this Great Country.
Include the sobs that voted for him and I am with you.
He will be dead before W is behind bars
Duncan L. Hunter
Duncan D. Hunter
Jeff Sessions (notwithstanding his comments on Sotomayor )
Tom Coburn (notwithstanding recent actions and support of McCain)
I know there are a couple more somewhere, I just can't think of them at the moment.
Oh, man! That’s a GOOD one, as much as anything because I can see it happening!
Do a little research. The "bank bailout" was not a goof and was absolutely necessary at the time to stop the complete economic collapse of the US and thus the world economy.
CONgre$$ controlls the purse strings, not the executive. And please don't go the he could have vetoed route unless you know exactly what else was in the bills and the history behind them.
Of course not! Jennifer Brunner, SoS for Ohio should be behind bars!
No truer words.....
Good to "see" you again, MJY!
Sad but true! Thanks for the post!
(Still maniacal Bush haters around here, I see. Can't even defend our honorable President when he's being attacked by Marxist thugs. PATHETIC LITTLE PEOPLE!!)
What is missing in a person's soul that the FIRST response they have to this unConstitutional travesty, is to attack the target of the Marxists?
I truly believe some of these pathological Bush haters are long term trolls here who don't have a conservative bone in their bodies.
The problem with what Obama did with the CIA is that you can’t control where a Special Prosecutor goes.
This thing will have unlimited money. Of course, the CIA guys will say they were following orders, and the SP Office will walk back the cat up the chain of command. I know I would.
This is being done to appease the Left in case Obama has to take defeat on HC and Cap and Trade. The Left wants Bush, and Obama will give him to them.
“How wonderful it is to see the support and respect President always receives even from the conservatives that disagreed with his policies.”
It’s the same support and respect any liberal politician should receive from conservatives.
“The Left wants Bush, and Obama will give him to them.”
Soros wants W and TOTUS will try to give him to it......
Sock puppet reads what he’s supposed to do.
This will fail. Ft. Hood is in Texas, with Ft. Sill in OK. THere’s the US Army and Hood. That’s all you need to know. Benning and Bragg can join in when they want to.
Pseudo-conservatives. Every one of you. EVERY one of you.
“PATHETIC LITTLE PEOPLE!!”
Bush was another LBJ who tried to sink the GOP and may have succeeded (not that the GOP didn’t work on that too). What is there to defend? You think you’re the bigger person for defending someone who sided with Teddy Kennedy against his own party? If being honorable means holding to the oath you took, then Bush was not honorable - he SIGNED CFR after saying he KNEW it was unconstitutional.
He was an LBJ or an FDR, not a Reagan. He believed government was the solution and should be bigger. That is indefensible.
I would oppose this witch hunt on legal grounds if against even Clinton (and Clinton probably DID do things that were illegal, not just unconstitutional like Bush), but I would defend the Office of the President, not the particular politician who occupies or occupied it.
Then it will be sure victory. These inner city minority gang thugs only attack when they outnumber their victims 10 to 1, who are unarmed. These 0bozo thug bastards will scatter like mice & vermin, as soon as they run up against armed citizens who are determined to reclaim OUR country.
And I’m talkng about the SCARY mindless devotion to bush.
This country goes on its merry wasy ignoring, rewriting, reinterpreting the constitution and then when their fake conservative is on the hot seat get all in a tizzy.
“Can you just see a tent city of armed patriots on Ws ranch.”
That wouldn’t help much Bush now lives in Dallas.
There was a time I was in shock...not any more.
It is disgusting and evil that these "people" cannot rise above it all and join us to defeat the utter destruction we are now facing from the communists in the highest places of power in our country.
“So rather than supporting Bush (pro-life, pro=military, conservative judges, moral, man of integrity), you will attack him and ignore the Marxist thugs trying to take him down.”
Was he pro-life? Hard to tell. He said he was. His wife wasn’t. Pro-military? Worn-out equipment from overuse and no money to replace it and back-to-back deployments because he wouldn’t fight the war, but became Wilsonian on DEMOCRACY! Maybe, maybe not. Moral? He violated his oath of office. Man of integrity? Maybe. Maybe not. I only have his policies with which to judge him. Not sure he was honest with us when he ran on SS reform and then decided to spend his political capital on amnesty.
Matthew 7:16 comes to mind.
Did you read this article? Do you know what it's talking about?
What is the point of arguing political opinion about an honorable man when our whole country is going down? When we have a Marxist in the WH?
My question is about your priorities.
btw, if you can't see any good in George W. Bush, then your eyes are sealed shut. If you can't defend the sanctity of life, the honoring and respect of our military, the incredible judges appointed, then you are missing some basic priorities.
I'm sorry. But you are.
That's why I can see that your emotions are out of control.
Try thinking for a change instead of reacting in mindless anger.
We are under attack by Marxists and thugs, and you can't even focus on the evil at hand because of your feelings against Bush.
It is impossible to debate with someone who is so clearly ignorant, so I will leave this discussion with the things I have already said.
May God bless and protect President Bush from ALL his enemies, especially the Marxist anti-American thugs in the WH who hate him BECAUSE of his morality and strength.
“What is the point of arguing political opinion about an honorable man when our whole country is going down? When we have a Marxist in the WH?”
Because our country is going down and the man you adore helped. He was not an honorable man. He violated his oath.
“If you can’t defend the sanctity of life, the honoring and respect of our military, the incredible judges appointed, then you are missing some basic priorities.”
Abortion is still legal, the military was used for nation-building (something the man ran against - another lie), we had to force the issue on one of those judges.
If you are blind to the trillions added to our debt, and the expansion of government (DHS, NCLB, Medicare-D) under a “Republican” then you truly are blinded by devotion to Bush the PERSON and are unable to see anything beyond him.
That the current guy is an order of magnitude worse does not excuse Bush.
The lack of priorities, the lack of conservatism, the lack of values, the lack of concern for the Constitution in people who call themselves conservatives, is overwhelming.
