    I wouldn't say that the Democrats are immune from corruption or dirty deals.  But the GOP/neocons "shoot first, ask questions later" approachs is totally reprehensible and deeply troubling.

    We can get excited about the good news, but there is still an awful lot of corruption to clean up.  And I'm also concerned, like you, that we're allowing war crimes but prosecuting small-time petty offenses.

    Nevertheless, I agree with Scahill's comparison to Al Capone.  It was the first thing that came to my mind after reading details of the indictment.

    Full Disclosure: I am not Ben Leming. But I think he's pretty cool.
