Now we may be dealing with a Truth Commission, a political entity probing the Bush administration for creating the Forever War (**) in Iraq. If ever, the true bill from a Federal grand jury could include indictments relating to detainee treatment, the kissy kissy relationship with defense contractors such as Halliburton (now known as Xe) and wiretapping sans a warrant.

In all of the above there may be a prosecutor's dream case. There is on this date, and for certain in the remaining three years plus of the Obama administration, sufficient grist and political bitterness to fill a lifetime of talk show content and consume barrels of ink for newsprint expressions. In all of this, from my remote Midwestern position as a legal observer, I see the major blessing for this nation: We have a Constitutional scholar in position as our commander in chief.

United States Senator Patrick Leahy will use his chairmanship of the Judiciary Committee as the weapon of choice. Subpoenas are to fly. No one in the public trough talks about dragging George Bush into the docks. However, both sides, The People...and Bush's fawning minions, will load talk shows with endless content. Let me consider that...

  (*) Appearing for Bush: Karl Rove, Dick Morris, Newt Gingrich, Sean Hannity.

  (*) For The People: Rachel Maddow, Paul Begala.

The real target of the Truth Commission, but he'll never serve a day...compliments of a benevolent President Obama...
My position: As a mere observer of the process and the complexity of Federal laws involved, truth will prevail, trials will fail. In the scheme of things, there will never be any trials because there will never be any indictments. A Truth Commission used in this context hints that truth relating to all-things-Bush means to bring embarrassment only, not a costly and endless docket of charges. That is as it should be. The People want truth not persecution. The People want the change promised during the 2008 campaign. It is my reasoning that President Obama wants change more than he wants a volatile disruption coming out of Washington.

Therefore, in closing my case, any truth of the national ills brought on by what I saw as repeated efforts to steal a nation, truth will suffice. Let it be. Let it rest. Our national psyche must have that promised change.

(*)  Appearing in the Court of Public Opinion; never will the Truth Commission findings be routed through indictment filings to a grand jury. Cost to taxpayers: Untold millions of dollars.
