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

(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.

Just wait until this investigation really gets going. You haven't seen anything yet. They'll end up deposing Laura and the twins before this is over - and I'm only half joking.

The only way Dubya would end up behind bars is if he installed them on his home’s windows...like they do in neighborhoods that voted overwhelmingly for Obama.

I am with you 100% — try and do this and the Democrats will NEVER be back in power. I want their whole liberal party destroyed. I am tired of the socialist/communist running the Dem Party and the United States. They need destroyed in 2010.

I mean, what are they thinking? That treating the CIA like a cheap whore won’t come back to bite them? That prosecuting a previous administration won’t lead to their own eventual prosecution? Insanity now rules.

Is former CIA agent David Brookes the typical CIA agent or is he a rogue?
With Obama and Van Jones in the White House, it seems he represents the norm rather than the exception.
I am having doubts that there are any good guys left in the organization.

Obama isnt going to be in office forever. Once the true damage this administion has done is known, he is goin to be lucky if he ends up in jail and not hung as a traitor.
This man is the true meaning of “Communist thug”.

Only in a fantasy role playing game.

Now my fantasy role playing campaign would be for Reid/Pelsoi/Obama to conduct an investigation on Bush for War Crimes, then Boston suffers a 9-11 type attack. Under such a scenario, the RATS would be out of power in the foreseeable future.

I really don't want to believe these people are this dumbfoundedly stupid, but it seems as though they really are complete boilerplate dumbasses! They want to create chaos, but all that is doing is turning people away from them and their idiotic anti-american ideas.

What good for them could possibly come from this?

Would Texas give up Bush to Obama? I think they would break away from the Union first. In that day when the Republicans take over Obama and his crew will be behind bars and Bush Pardoned.

Moral of the story, charismatic, self-anointed demigods don't gracefully give up the scepter of power.

The Obamunists and their Muslim terrorist allies would love this to happen. Holder’s witch hunt of the interrogators who successfully foiled further terrorist plots is the first step toward this ultimate goal. Such a move would be extremley divisive, perhaps leading to civil conflict. I doubt America’s Army would fire on the American people. One hopes Obama will be prudent.

They aren’t after ‘W’, they will be satisfied with Dick Cheney behind bars. Personally, I don’t know whom is hated most by the nut-roots, Cheney or Karl Rove, but rest assured they are both hated. It will be interesting to see how the Obama Administration handles this given the fact that what ‘comes around - goes around’. Obama would have no desire to spend time behind bars for, as an example, RICO violations. Too far in one direction invites the pendulum to swing in your direction!

With apologies to the Doors when they sang about the Leftist “revolution” of the late 60s and early 70s.

This is about the current revolution: “Five to one baby,one in five,
No Fed fascist gets out alive,
You've got yours Obama,leave me mine,
Gonna mess you up you cross the line.
The young get old and the old get stronger,
May take til 2010 or two years longer,
You've got the guns but we got guns and numbers,
Gonna win yeah,we'll take over.”

Your Marxist days are over Obama,good men closing near,
American patriots out to kick your rear,
You walk across the floor with your race card in your hand,try to tell us no-one understands,
Trade in your soul for a handful of jive,
Your gonna crash big,no more lies!”

Army? Forget the army. There are a great many people who are exactly as angry and delusional as is Obama and THEY will rise up against any force or group they see as unfairly thwarting the messiah.

Julius Streicher, publisher of Der Stürmer newspaper, found out the hard way that Nazi propagandists also suffer consequences. Take heed, CNN worms. You are not immune to charges of sedition and the appropriate legal punishment. We’ll probably hang you alphabetically. First ABC, second is Atlanta Constitution, next CBS, then comes CNN...

When one starts out with the leftish premise that the President was not authorized to make war our enemies, then every action becomes illegal. If one goes beyond that and assume that the President is a usurper, then every breathe he takes is to be judged negatively. So the left thinks about Bush.
