We have a house devided against it’s self. We have a bunch of 60’s hippies in office that are liberals socialist and they are anti war anti america and they don’t care for the safety of this country or the security and mainly they don’t care what the people thinks. The war against terrorist was voted on by the congress and approved. Now we have a bunch of anti war group trying to make it a former presidents fault. We just don’t want terrorist setting bombs off in our streets everywhere and Bush kept that from happening and I hope his policies keeps it from ever happening ever. If you don’t like the policies that has kept us safe then I don’t think anyone would stop you if you left this country and never came back.

interrogation, sure, and rape is just enhanced love making. what you fail to understand is that Americans were kidnapped and sent to other countries to be tortured. its called extraordinary rendition. and it goes far beyond torture he showed no regard for the bill of rights, and that is the most severe crime that can be committed in this country, and it would be “moronic” to let that slide.

The Dems stood behind Bush when they were scared of ‘terrorists’ and attack him in spite of the fact the surge in Iraq succeeded! Cowardly hypocrites back this ridiculous wasteful bill. I’m sure Dems were told by CIA about aggresive interrogations in advance, and terrorists who hate Americans were not tortured. Bush is not perfect, he’s human. I disagreed with Congress who voted to go to War in Iraq, but supported my President and our troops. I felt proud to be an American. In history, Bush will be remembered for his leadership, his integrity, standing up for his beliefs, and for keeping Americans safer. Even those cowards who do not deserve protections and do not appreciate American men and women’s sacrafices. President Obama is right about one thing by instructing his Admin to look forward, not backward. The fact his Administration of Dems are not influenced means Hillary was right…he doesn’t have the right stuff to lead this country. America has no leader.

Forget the past… we have enough to investigate RIGHT NOW! Now that government is growing in leaps and bounds and some folk might need things to do for those juicy salaries and benefits, how about we investigate the politicians in there now. Let’s take a look at ACORN, the tax evasion of the current cabinet members,the out of control spending, or let’s investigate the FED! If we are going to investigate past presidents… I say let’s start with Woodrow Wilson and the Fed and go from there! How about stopping the abuses done to the American people?

I am tired of this obsession with Bush.. I beat Gore and he beat Kerry fair and square. These people that are sitting here expressing there 1st amendment rights should openly thank GW for keeping us safe. If you have nothing to hide why worry about it! I do not see anyone calling for investigations of Clinton, or Obama. Believe me neither one of these guys is an angel! This partison BS is not helping anyone. Focus on what is at hand.

is that how we treat crime in this country? can a murderer use that excuse in court, forget the past? What crime has ACORN committed, besides registering poor people to vote(which is their true crime)? if were gonna prosecute organization how about BLACKWATER who turns a blind eye when employees actually gang rape female employees. although investigating the FED sounds like a good idea.

reckless spending is not a crime. torturing American citizens, and stealing executive power, on the other hand, is. To my knowledge has yet to commit a crime in office, but if he did i have a feeling you would be singing my song, and i would sing it with you.

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety. – Benjamin Franklin

you don’t actually think he kept us safe, do you? Clinton defiantly needs to be investigated, Obama has not been in office for more than a year what are you talking about. they don’t have to be angles they just have to up hold the laws made by congress.

If bush raped someone would the call for his prosecution still be partisan BS?

The President certainly has inflated his war powers over the years. Thank John Yoo for that, among others.

I agree with this resolution. Minus the little added portion of traveling and per diem expenses. Is this not what they are paid to do? I do think this resolution should go one step further and include investigation into the legality of the Patriot Act.

We need to show that the people in our administration who used torture are not supported by the American people. This is the only way that we can hope that any of our soldiers who are captured by our enemies will not be tortured. Information given under torture has been shown to be faulty since those being tortured will likely tell you anything in order to get the torture to stop. We need to set consequences for those that allowed these policies to persist in order to assure that torture will not be a part of our policy in the future.

I can not believe that you are serious about this. There are no facts supporting your cause! He released a birth certificate, before he ran. The Hawaiian government supports it, even with his birth in a newspaper. Professionals have observed his birth certificate, and said that it was legal. You think you know more that these people? I find this very interesting that nobody has any problem with the birth certificate of any white president. It becomes a problem when we have a half African American president who is proud of his family. It’s sad that so many people believe in this conspiracy theory. I can’t wait until years from now when you will look silly.

I agree with putting it to rest. Congress needs to review and stay on top of these situations, but if every time we need to take military action we have to run it through congress, we will be in trouble!

Churchill made the decision to not torture German officers despite the fact London was being bombed. He refused to compromise his principles. We should investigate whether Bush and Cheney compromised our principles (and broke the law) or not.

I urge everyone to support this bill, as it is important to show the world that we are a country that honors the rule of law. We should show the international community and future generations of Americans that we will not allow those who break the law to go unpunished, even if crimes were committed by the President or the Vice-President. We deserve to know the truth, and we demand to know the truth. We need to demonstrate that we do not agree that we should compromise our values for our security. Thank you for your consideration.
