The release of CIA documents on the interrogation tactics used during the Bush administration is the latest battle up on the hill between Democrats and Republicans. Democrats are pushing to seize an opportunity for political genocide against Republicans with the prosecution of former members of the Bush administration. Aside from political rhetoric and a long drawn out legal battle at taxpayer's expense, what is there to gain? What is the significance of prosecuting subordinates of the Bush administration, if the buck stops at the top?
As the skeletons of the Bush administration come out of the closet, neither Democrats nor Republicans can afford to re-hash and cast judgment now. Both parties are responsible for the way history has been written. It's the here and now that matters.
Let's hold them accountable,www.senate.gov,to move forward on far more pressing issues. We need both parties to focus on writing a brighter future for our country.
