Yup, and it was just as shameful then. Course Clinton wasn't in a position to possibly pardon those who engaged in torture. Just a minor thing.

If he issues those blanket pardons, is he then saying they are guilty and should of been investigated?

Could be interesting.

Prozac Boy, that goes back to Nixon's pardon, and whether one can be pardoned without being indicted, etc.

The article says that some of the possible recipients wouldn't want it because it would be an admission of guilt on their part, but the president's actions are not considered any proof of guilt.

Tomorrow at the moment that Obama takes the oath, I'm going to flush my toilet in a symbolic gesture of flushing the turd George W. Bush down the National toilet. Who will join me in this celebration?

...and The Politico will applaud every one of those if they happen.

As of right now, three hours after the inauguration, there have been no reported last minute pardons issued by Bush, which would suggest that none were issued. Shockingly, the media has yet to report on this.

Huffington reported it all day yesterday.
