A Setback For
Drive To Punish
Bush-Era 'War Criminals'

by Byron York - January 30th, 2010 - Washington Examiner

One cherished goal of legal activists on the left is to punish the "war criminals" who helped shape terrorist interrogation policies during the Bush administration. Some of those activists now work in the Obama Justice Department and have been hoping the Department would find two Bush-era lawyers in particular, John Yoo and Jay Bybee, guilty of professional misconduct -- a move that would likely result in both men facing disbarment proceedings.

The activists are sure to be disappointed in a new report by Newsweek's Michael Isikoff and Mark Hosenball, who say a still-unreleased report from the Department's Office of Professional Responsibility "clears the Bush administration lawyers who authored the 'torture' memos of professional-misconduct allegations."

The lust by those on the left to punish those on the right is shared by our President and his childish Attorney General. I would not expect this is the end of this matter any more than Obama's difficulties in changing the war against the islamo fascists into a criminal matter will deter them from that goal. They will wait a while and find a new way to try and destroy these people. The left is only at war with other Americans who dare to disagree with their socialist Utopian dreams, not with true enemies of America.
