Scapegoats: Taking it to the Next Level

There is something about the constant talk about whether the Lawyers at the Office of Legal Council will be prosecuted for the torture memos. It's true that they are very stupid men who wrote very stupid opinions to satisfy the wishes of there bosses. And it's true that in doing so they committed conspiracy to commit war crimes.
But the time has come to say enough with the scapegoats. It time for the buck to stop where it belongs.
The highest levels of the Bush Administration stood silent as American Soldiers as were sent to prison for "softening up" prisoners for interrogation. They called them "a few bad apples" when they were sentenced to years in prison for follow instructions from the highest levels.
It time to take it to the next level.
