If only American laws applied to the American government. Then the criminals who have been in charge for eight years could be prosecuted for their extreme violation of United States laws. But, of course, the great, moral American government is far above the law. American law only applies to dispensable nations. America is not answerable to law, not to its own law and not to international law. U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey affirmed that the U.S. government is above all law when he told the Senate Judiciary Committee that there would be no investigation or prosecution of those Bush regime officials who authorized torture and those who carried out the sadistic acts.
The American government, the government of the great, indispensable nation, has a free pass. The strong do what they will. The weak suffer what they must.
