It's Not Too Late: Demand Obama Investigate Bush's War Crimes

Over the holiday break I wrote a post about and initiative spearheaded by Ari Melber of the Nation and Democrats.com to ask President-elect Obama if he will appoint a special prosecutor to investigate war crimes in the Bush administration over at Change.gov. (In a previous round, it was the sixth most asked question, and the new administration has only agreed to answer the first five, so it went unanswered. )

This time, through their efforts, it's number one. This is particularly important, since the press has only asked Obama about this one time, last April. And a lot has happened since then, most obviously the fact that Vice President is all over television admitting to war crimes as if he's proud of it.

Democrats.com quotes Melber saying:


"With so few journalists directly asking the President-Elect about these issues, however, it is up to the rest of us to put accountability and the rule of law on the agenda."

Yes we can.

The voting is still open:
