I'm a Mexican who read your "Secrecy and Privilege" book. Some time afterward I've read Vincent Bugliosi's "The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder", in which he indeed states that Cheney should be prosecuted too along with Rove and Rice (& Rumsfeld, I would add). This is more of 2 questions. (1) Was the organization ImpeachBush.org a fake to which I donated? (2) if Obama allows a prosecution of George W. Bush & his accomplices -wouldn't then any Bush's pardon of Cheney be invalid & moot? Wouldn't a prosecution of the Gang of Four --Cheney, Bush, Rumsfeld & Rove, and their consequently be sentenced to life terms or death for having criminally caused the death of more than 4,000 U.S. troops, more than 1.2 million Iraqi civilians and huge displacement and Iraqi refugee problem, wouldn't that restore trust in authentic Justice and set the most valuable precedent in at least a century?
