  •  We cannot really look and move forward without (12+ / 0-)

    cleaning up the mess in our wake. Last night Olbermann closed with a good summary of why that is necessary. Every time we or any other nation has tried to move forward leaving what amounts to enemy strong points in its rear the consequences have ranged from repeat failure to disaster.

    I personally am getting weary of hearing the message that we should just smile, feel good, look ahead and let the past "heal" when I know it will fester unless cleaned. I'm very much willing to let the new AG handle things as routine investigation. If there is failure there I would take that as the first rot in an Obama administration.

    Much of our present national disaster is due to a suspension of accountability at all high levels. We've heard from those levels for years about how the poorest, weakest and most afflicted of our people need to show "accountability" while they themselves reject every effort to be accountable. That must stop now.

    The only foes that threaten America are the enemies at home, and those are ignorance, superstition, and incompetence. [Elbert Hubbard]
