Obama says “We must not look backwards.”

Obama told Meet the Press that he “also [has] a belief that we need to look forward as opposed to looking backwards,” regarding prosecuting Bush Administration minions and officials.

I agree, Mr. President. Now is not the time for partisan squabblings over minor crimes. We must worry about the economy, about the war in Iraq, and about Iranian nuclear development. We have more important matters to worry about than the torture of innocent people. That is a minor issue when compared with the challenges faced by this county.

War crimes are only important when committed against us. After all, we commit them in the defense of liberty and democracy. Other nations and groups use them for evil ends like spreading communism and Islam! The ends justify the means, right?

Prosecuting those responsible would only divide the nation. We must be unified in this time of crisis. We cannot allow ourselves to be sidetracked by petty disagreements over things like morality and civil liberties. We must look forward as we move on into this Brave New World!
