I'm not sure I have ever read words more true than…

…those written by Eugene Robinson of the WaPo this morning, refering to the national disgrace forced upon us by bush the Little:
Obama should form an official blue-ribbon panel, some sort of "truth commission," to investigate Bush's conduct of his "war on terror" and report to the American people. The point isn't to prosecute anyone. The point certainly isn't to reveal genuine national security secrets whose disclosure would put lives in danger. The point is to know, and to remember.

This nation's ideals of due process, rule of law, humane interrogation, privacy and governmental openness are not mere embellishments. They are essential to who we are. By disregarding those ideals, the previous administration diminished us all.

A thorough investigation would be controversial and could make it more difficult for Obama to move ahead with his agenda in other areas. But as he said yesterday, we must honor our values "not just when it's easy, but also when it's hard."
This must be done to find out just how terribly close bush came to destroying the very idea of America with his evil machinations.
