I am one of the many Americans who are outraged by the behavior of George W. Bush, Richard Cheney, and their administration. It seems to me that our war in Iraq was likely started in administrative minds early in the first term of this administration, and reasons for it were then manufactured. This possibility should be investigated. Should it turn out to be true, they could be charged with both treason and murder. Both of those charges, should they come to trial, might even cause people to spend the rest of their lives in prison.
I am very tired of an administration that, for its own ends, lied to the American people, and treated prisoners as well as home-based citizens in an illegal manner, and we need to correct those situations as quickly as possible.
But the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq were mishandled in many ways; the war in Iraq was pursued without real cause; and Cheney's former corporation profited beyond imagining from them. George W. Bush's old pals in the oil industry have also profited from many administrative orders. All of this has cost the American people a debt we'll be repaying for years. The fact that the debt appears to have been based on lies--they didn't even include the cost of the War on Terror in their annual budgets--would seem to me to be treasonous. I'm not a lawyer or an expert on the subject, but I sure would like to have the experts look into it.
