Investigate Bush but Take Prison Off the Table?

President Obama's reluctance to investigate President Bush stems from his desire to focus on the future, but Senator Patrick Leahy says the country cannot move forward without a comprehensive investigation into the Bush administration.

Yesterday, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Leahy outlined his vision for the investigation, which he sees as a compromise for those who oppose any investigation and those who are itching for one. He explained:

Rather than vengeance, we need a fair-minded pursuit of what actually happened. [It's] not to humiliate people or punish people, but to get the truth out, so we don't make the same mistakes again. We fought Revolution in this country so we could protest the actions of government. We should protect that.

The commission could be endowed with the subpoena power, but perhaps not the power to put people in prison. Leahy suggests filling the commission, which would look into civil liberties and human rights abuses, with universally respected individuals who don't have political vendettas.

Could you get behind this sort of accountability?
