Obama: As President, I Would "Immediately" Look Into Prosecuting Bush Officials

Radical.

It's extremely dangerous to begin talking about prosecuting and jailing one's political opponents for the temerity to have disagreed with you politically.

What the fuck.

“What I would want to do is to have my Justice Department and my Attorney General immediately review the information that’s already there and to find out are there inquiries that need to be pursued. I can’t prejudge that because we don’t have access to all the material right now. I think that you are right, if crimes have been committed, they should be investigated. You’re also right that I would not want my first term consumed by what was perceived on the part of Republicans as a partisan witch hunt because I think we’ve got too many problems we’ve got to solve.

Thanks to CJ.
