If President Bush was directly responsible for the actions of Army Corporals and Sergeants at Abu Ghraib, which Democrats and Lefties never stopped accusing him of, then President Obama is responsible for the actions of his own Department of Justice.
The Democrats’ rational was that Bush set the tone, and those people fifteen levels below him acted on that direction, which made Bush responsible. Well then, Obama set the tone, and the Dept of Justice isn’t fifteen levels below him, it is a direct report. So he is as responsible for this situation as Bush was for Abu Ghraib.
The fact is that the sentence was passed and served. There is no justification for the DOJ to insert itself and demand years more in prison.
