I guess all we can do with judges like this, is shoot them. America is increasingly burdened by an awful lot of people with what amount to patents of nobility who cannot be held accountable by the law and the mechanisms that punish misbehavior and crime. It started to go bad a long time ago but I think it has been accelerating ever since the nation hired a lawyer and his team of investigators to determine who had 'outed' CIA person Plame. Two and a half years of scurrilous investigating by the team cost us $2.58 million which seems like a bargain. On the other hand, they knew when they started the investigation that Novak's source has been Richard Armitage.
All that fuss and bother about a State Department hack accidentally revealing the identity of a CIA analyst who worked in CIA headquarters in Langley. Contrast that with the recent disclosure and photo of the CIA Station Chief in Afghanistan who was outed by the State Department or the White House. The silence is deafening.
I think it is time revisit all these grants of blanket immunity that judges, prosecutors and police have bestowed upon themselves. Nobody died and made them kings.
I like the "shoot them" approach.ReplyDelete
