Bush is an evil person, and has done a lot of harm to the US and other countries on our planet.

It's good to know he takes this position, but I might point out the FBI, as he testifies, always took this position. There are many comments on the article itself decrying the FBI for not punishing the war criminals involved. Well, people, it's not the FBI's job to punish, or even to file charges. That is the job of the Justice Department. Once that is done, it becomes the FBI's job to apprehend them, and the job of the courts to try them. If like me you are unhappy that war criminals in the US go free, let's at least put the blame on the Justice Department where it belongs.

C2 is messing up, not sure if this comment will go through. Has above story what usually is found when someone is hiding their profile.

Most certainly was illegal, and these War Criminals at the top of the Command need to be held accountable. They throw a few of the lowest level soldiers under the bus and protect the ones with stars and eagles as well as our Top Commanders in the Civilian part of the Government, right to the Commander in Chief.

How can the USA stand up and say it is for Human Rights and ask other Countries to do this and that when the USA isn't doing it themselves. Hypocrite at best and extremely dangerous and deadly at worse.

Noted. Thanks, Carrie. He says all the right words, yet I don't trust Comey as far as I could throw him.
