Upon reflection, I modified my original post by inserting the following quote from Nietzsche.
"He who fights with monsters should look to it that he himself does not become a monster. And when you gaze long into an abyss, the abyss also gazes into you."
Dear Mr. President:
I'm disheartened to hear statements regarding whether your administration will seek to prosecute former Bush administration officials for breaking our laws regarding torture. What happened to our beliefs in law as a process? We have institutions that investigate these matters so why not let them do their jobs? Isn't that why Gonzalez was discredited - following the wishes of the Bush administration? Let's hope our current justice department isn't waiting for you to make the call Mr. President. Please, stand down and let them do their jobs and permit us to believe you aren't calling all the justice department moves.
Respectfully but in doubt,
