Nothing that John McCain would have done differently..I thought i voted for something else...something besides white elitism.
..what about the 2 men below...Leonard and Mumia.....Why not forget the past in these cases...why is that? White Imperialism alive and well.and living in the White house.....
Listen to Keith Olbermann tell us why this is so outrageous and WRONG.

Olbermann: We cannot let mistakes of the past haunt our future.
"As promised, a Special Comment now on the president's revelation of the remainder of this nightmare of Bush Administration torture memos. This President has gone where few before him, dared. The dirty laundry - illegal, un-American, self-defeating, self-destroying - is out for all to see.Mr. Obama deserves our praise and our thanks for that. And yet he has gone but half-way. And, in this case, in far too many respects, half the distance is worse than standing still. Today, Mr. President, in acknowledging these science-fiction-like documents, you said that:
"This is a time for reflection, not retribution. I respect the strong views and emotions that these issues evoke."
"We have been through a dark and painful chapter in our history.
"But at a time of great challenges and disturbing disunity, nothing will be gained by spending our time and energy laying blame for the past.
Mr. President, you are wrong. What you describe would be not "spent energy" but catharsis.Not "blame laid," but responsibility ascribed."
