What if every citizen were this brave?
I have to express some amount of solidarity with the four folks in Iowa who attempted to perform a citizen's arrest of Karl Rove last week. The four accuse him of "election fraud; conspiracy to commit offense or to defraud the United States in the time before the Iraq war; and treason, sedition and subversive activities for fraudulent acts leading to the deaths of 300,000 Iraqi civilians and 4,000 U.S. Military personnel". These principled folks are awefully brave and have in effect opened them selves up to potential kidnapping charges. It is a litmus test of the health of our nation who will be brought to justice, the cynical apparatchik or the principled individuals who took a stand against him.
