If President Obama believes ‘justice has been done’ by the killing of terror mastermind Osama bin Laden–allegedly responsible for the deaths of 3,000 civilians in the 2001 World Trade Center attack–why hasn’t he indicted former President George W. Bush, the architect of an illegal war that has killed some 5000 US troops and perhaps a quarter of a million Iraqi civilians?
How can President Obama talk about justice concerning bin Laden while steadfastly refusing to indict his own predecessor who deceived the American people into making a war against Iraq based on fabricated intelligence and outright lies? Why aren’t former Vice President Dick Cheney and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and other Bush team players under arrest at this hour?
Why is there no prosecution of the officials who sucked $3 trillion in tax dollars from the pockets of American workers to wage a war against a country that posed no threat to them?
President Obama’s failure to prosecute Bush-Cheney clearly violates his obligation to enforce the U.S. Constitution—a document that incorporates the United Nations Charter which the Bush White House violated when it attacked Afghanistan and Iraq.
