Facebook Supporter: Mr. President, I know that you have your hands full with issues like, the economy and national health care and know there are other important matters that you are tending to, but there are several of us wondering; if the Bush Administration was guilty of War Crimes, then why are you hindering on seeking prosecution. If there is not going to be any further investigation in this matter, then we speak with double tongues don\'t we? We can convict those that were probably following orders at Abu Ghraib. So, don\'t you think that if we turn a blind eye to what really transpired, that we are showing the rest of the world that it is okay to break treaties that were set up just for these issues. If we do not seek to pursue this matter we are actually saying, that the U.S. can do whatever they want, no matter what? I am following a disgruntled crowd on your facebook, and they are feeling the same way. The Patriot Act was enforced, because of terrorism, that took U.S. citizens civil liberties from them, without our vote. The Bush Administration came in, decided that they were going to invade Iraq, to \"stop terrorism\", and we all know what the real reason was - OIL. Then, we started loosing our rights, no matter what direction we turned. I am from Texas, where we have enough problems, other than the ones that you are faced with. We have a Crazed Governor who thinks we need to withdraw from the Union. There are \"Tea Parties\" taking place, which are nothing more than KKK meetings without the hoods, so if we can stand to be lone rangers in a great Big State, with a pyschopathic Rick Perry at the helm, I think that this issue with the Bush Administration, and the Geneva Convention, can be taken a bit more seriously. I know that you keep saying that we need to look forward, but sometimes, you have to deal with the past to get to the future. I would think, as bad as our position is in the world, it might be a turn to the better.
