Yeah, that’s about right. Just because one is president does not put one above the rule of law. That’s pretty much a basic tenet of this country. A tenet which seems to have been forgotten since September 11th 2001.

“Doctors Without Borders, the organization that has run this hospital for five years, has made very clear that they’re not most interested in hearing apologies or claims of mistake or collateral damage,” Greenwald said. “They want only one thing, and that is an independent, impartial investigation to find out what really happened here, who made the decision to bomb this hospital and what it is that they knew.
