THERE IS NO IMPUNITY FOR BUSH AND WAR CRIMINALS UNDER THE US CONSTITUTION IF THE PEOPLE DON'T WANT THAT: RETROACTIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT

"Obama's plans for probing Bush torture," by Mark Benjamin. Salon.com. November 13, 2008.

I don't advocate punishment, but I left the following comment over at OpEdNews concerning the article linked to above:

Retroactive Constitutional Amendment
The only way in the U.S. right now to undo George W. Bush's coming Presidential pardons is via a retroactive constitutional amendment. If he pardons all the war criminals, it will be up to the voters under the Constitution as to whether or not they allow those pardons to stick. Enough voters across the various states can effectuate anything they want to under the Constitution. The people have more power than does the President.

The focus should not be on punishing the guilty (they will be punished if they don't repent enough). Our focus should be on changing hearts and minds so that we as humans create a world in which war crimes and wars themselves become unthinkable acts of utter barbarity.
