America: In A Precarious Legal Position

So, when the American people get sued because of the actions of the W, Rove and Co. and that law suit results in more and greater expense because some people have legitimate claims on the US of A, who will the reichwingers blame? No doubt: "activist judges." But here's the point:
"I don't think the Constitution has to be gutted to achieve our objectives" in the war on terrorism. "I felt it was my duty as an American to take a stand for the constitutional rights guaranteed to all Americans."
Moreover:
"Human rights monitors note that the vast majority of the over 15,000 detainees in U.S. military custody in Iraq have never been charged, tried, provided counsel, or allowed to challenge their detention in court, and over one-fifth of them have been detained for over a year in this manner," according to the suit.

In addition, the suit cites a 2004 Red Cross report that said military intelligence officers of coalition forces acknowledged "between 70% and 90% of the persons deprived of their liberty in Iraq had been arrested by mistake."
So, the bigger question, is how do we hold the real culprits responsible for the mess we are in? I say, it's never too late for the beginning of impeachment proceedings. Now, if we only had some Democrats with a spine to get the proceedings off the ground.

I'm all over an impeachment, but with Pelosi all but promising that she wouldn't, what choice do we have?
