Our Party, Our Nation, E Pluribus Unum

This is not about the mediocre Attorney General of the United States, Eric Holder, and his failure to uphold his responsibility to begin prosecutions for various war crimes by top officials of the U.S., this is about the moral imperative of the American people to see to it that we take these crimes, however long ago in time they may be, serious enough to hold a governmental inquiry into these matters  -- either by the executive branch, which is unlikely given Holder's stance, or the legislative branch -- and then to follow up on wherever the truth may lead by issuing complaints to the international court in The Hague (Netherlands) that is responsible for deciding the guilt or innocence of the accused.  The inquiry should focus on the top officials who made decisions in violation of international conventions that America is signatory to, or in violation of the U.S. Constitution.  If America does nothing, then our nation is not only culpable for crimes committed under our nation's name, but has given them the stamp of approval as well.  That would be a stain that would live with our nation for a thousand years.  We the People should not let that happen.
