Commentary: Not yet sold on truth commission for Bush years

If incompetence were a crime, you might have a case. Heck, if arrogance were a felony, you could put them on Death Row. But these things are not against the law, so forgive me if I'm not sold on the argument that we should launch investigations of the failures of the Bush years. It's a view advanced by many, including Sen. Patrick Leahy, who wants to empanel a "truth commission" and CNN commentator Jack Cafferty, who wants a special prosecutor.
