The Biggest Crime
"Why is Bush's monumental crime ignored and the far lesser crime of torture yelled about from the roof tops?"
Torture? But There Is A Far, Far More Egregious Crime
As important as the U.S. torture issue is, there is a far greater crime that needs to be strongly addressed: How George W. Bush and his cronies took our country into an extremely destructive and costly war on the basis of outright lies. The resulting harm is vast and incalculable for our country and for Iraq. As a result, hundreds of thousands of people including women and children have been killed, and millions of lives have been seriously disrupted and destroyed in a country that presented absolutely no threat to us. And killing and maiming in Iraq still goes on daily, all as a result of Bush's war!
And as well, thousands of American soldiers have given their lives and/or have been seriously wounded as a result of Bush's lies, for they genuinely believed that they were fighting for their country against a confirmed enemy, viz. Iraq's [alleged] involvement in the 9/11 attacks!
The case of such a monumental crime, probably the worst crime ever committed by a U.S. President, is amply substantiated by Vincent Bugliosi in his powerful book The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder. And the evidence of Bush's war lies is incontrovertible and beyond a reasonable doubt. Why, why is that horrific crime ignored by the media and all those pushing so hard for justice regarding the torture criminality, and the much bigger crime ignored? Nobody even mentions it but in passing, it seems. Why, why?
