Fortunately there is a single common-sense step the next Administration can take, which has the potential to break this logjam.
Offer our own leaders for trial.
There can no longer be any real doubt that our current political leaders are war criminals. The evidence of mass murder and torture, directed from the highest levels of the United States government, keeps mounting. It becomes more obvious each day in the actions of that Administration to cover up what it did and thwart justice.
So open an investigation. Do this openly, transparently, publicly. Offer to share the results with the International Criminal Court, and to respond appropriately to its future requests in the matter.
This is how you win the War on Terror. By proving to the world that we will not be terrorized. Not by anyone. Not even by our own leaders.
