What on Earth makes David Axelrod think that the legal community in the United States is going to shut up and ignore the program of torture exercised by the Bush Administration? Nothing short of the political and career death of the architects of the Bush Administration's torture policy is going to satisfy them.
Part of never having anything like this take place again is the example that will be made of the policy's perpetrators. As in, those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it.
Democracy is fragile. The democratic institutions in this country took a real beating under the Bush Administration. Now they're pissed and determined never to let anything like that happen again.
So go ahead and whistle in the dark, Mr. Axelrod. You aren't going to win this one no matter how much you wish for it.
