Kit Bond: Obama's Investigation of Torture Like "A Banana Republic"


And the Republican Missouri senator was not talking about overpriced slacks. You really have to see it to believe it:

Here's the direct quote:

This whole thing about punishing people in past administrations reminds me more of a banana republic than the United States of America. We don't criminally prosecute people we disagree with when we change office. There were a lot of questions that could have been asked of the Clinton administration failing to recognize the war on terror. They did not. The Bush administration went forward and that's the way our country should. The president said he was going to be forward looking and now he has opened up a stab in the back.

The best part about the clip? The look on Andrea Mitchell's face. Though her words were more diplomatic, her look clearly says: "You've got to be fucking kidding me, right?"
