A State Prosecutor for Bush?


Jonathan Zasloff speculates about the idea that an ambitious state attorney general might be able to find a way to indict Bush administration officials for crimes related to torture and so forth. My guess is that an effort along those lines would ultimately fail, but it might well be a useful exercise for the country. Among other things, it would make it difficult for the Obama administration to do the expedient thing and just kind of ignore the issue for a few months and hope everyone forgets about it.
