“A chorus of angry voices has pressed aggressively for criminal charges to be brought against former President George W. Bush, former Vice President Dick Cheney, and members of the intelligence community thought guilty of constitutional violations or of practicing or sanctioning torture. It should be recalled that President Kennedy ordered the assassination of a foreign leader, Vietnam’s Ngo Dinh Diem, and Ronald Reagan defied an act of Congress by illegally supplying arms to the anti-communists in Nicaragua. The ‘sainted’ FDR, so lovingly memorialized in Washington, sent thousands of his fellow Americans into captivity after Pearl Harbor because of their Japanese ancestry. Yet there were no serious campaigns to put these presidents on trial.”
