S/SW blog philosophy -

I credit favorite writers and public opinion makers.

A lifelong Democrat, my comments on Congress, the judiciary and the presidency are regular features.

My observations and commentary are on people and events in politics that affect the USA or the rest of the world, and stand for the interests of peace, security and justice.

Why we can't afford to let Obama give Bush's war criminals a free pass, by attorney/author Charlotte Dennett

This post is by Charlotte Dennett, who is the author of the newly released The People v. Bush: One Lawyer’s Campaign to Bring the President to Justice and the National Grassroots Movement She Encounters Along the Way. Formerly a journalist reporting from the Middle East, she now practices law. If, indeed, the Iraq war was all about the oil, the Bush administration's choice to ignore or manipulate the rule of law makes perfect sense. That does not justify it, however. And that is just the point of her excellent piece.
