"I'm a war [crimes] president!"

Given the load of folderol Bush presented us on Iraq and Saddam, I am continually amazed at the follow-the-leader mentality exhibited by Congress, even in the most blatant, egregious war powers pushing that Bush does. I was incorrect on the Military Commissions Act: it doesn't provide for retroactive exoneration/pardon/CYA for possible war crimes committed by this administration to 2001, it covers their butts all the way back through 1997.

I'm not sure if it will cover our Pro-Torture Congressional Trio, though...wonder if they've considered that?
