Joe Klein Proposes Bush Memorial In Washington: Statue Of Hooded Abu Ghraib Prisoner

Joe Klein Proposes Bush Memorial In Washington: Statue Of Hooded Abu Ghraib Prisoner

If Barack Obama really wanted to be cagey, he could pardon Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld for the possible commission of war crimes. Then they'd have to live with official acknowledgment of their ignominy in perpetuity. More likely, Obama will simply make sure -- through his excellent team of legal appointees -- that no such behavior happens again. Still, there should be some official acknowledgment by the U.S. government that the Bush Administration's policies were reprehensible, and quite possibly illegal, and that the U.S. is no longer in the torture business. If Obama doesn't want to make that statement, perhaps we could do it in the form of a Bush Memorial in Washington: a statue of the hooded Abu Ghraib prisoner in cruciform stress position -- the real Bush legacy
