Ask Obama Part 2

President-Elect Obama’s website asked for questions. People submitted and voted on questions, and finishing in sixth place was this one:

“Will you appoint a Special Prosecutor – ideally Patrick Fitzgerald – to independently investigate the gravest crimes of the Bush Administration, including torture and warrantless wiretapping?”
Bob Fertik, New York City

Now round two begins, and we’d appreciate your voting for this question:

“Do you believe the pardon power extends to allowing a president to authorize a crime and then pardon his subordinate? Are you aware that the Geneva Conventions and the Convention Against Torture commit the United States to prosecuting violators?”
David Swanson, Charlottesville VA
