A To-Do List for Bush
The New York Times presents its "must do" list for President Bush. Excellent choices include:
- Restore Habeas Corpus
- Stop Illegal Spying
- Ban Torture, Really
In addition, the Times says, he must close secret prisons, account for the ghost prisoners, ban extraordinary rendition, tighten the definition of enemy combatant, fairly screen prisoners, ban secret and tainted evidence, better define "classified evidence" and respect the right to counsel.
It may be a to-do list for Bush, but I hope the Democrats are reading and listening. These are many of the issues we expected them to lead on when we voted in November.
Time to get busy.
