We Must Not Whitewash the Past

The Russian government is engaged in whitewashing the crimes committed during Stalin's regime.

There is, of course, a monumental difference in scale between the crimes of Stalin and those of George W. Bush. If what Stalin did could be compared to premeditated murder, what was done by Bush was jaywalking against the light.

But that is no reason to follow Russia's path and close our eyes to what has been done in our name by the Bush Administration. The Soviet Constitution was a meaningless document, our Constitution is supposed to be our governing law. We should not, we can not, we must not let the crimes of the Bush Administration go by without a reckoning.

Our honor as a nation of laws is at stake.
