Open Thread


by Mary

One of the reasons that the Nuremberg Trials were so compelling and so awful was because the Nazis were so careful to record every little detail about their actions. They were true bureaucrats building a careful record and believed in saving everything they could about what they were doing.

It's been my belief that the Bush administration has been just as careful to record their actions and this will prove to be problematic for them as well. How much of their history will they feel compelled to delete - the tapes and the emails - and how much will they try to sequester away into the deep dark secrecy vaults until someone someday gets to see their full glorious history far off into the distant future? After all, a major motivation is to keep the evidence of their legacy for posterity.

Your turn now.
