The Real Mukasey Issue - will he enforce the law?

a friend writes:

The Nub is Immunity and Prosecution.

Obviously, the Bush regime is torturing, waterboarding, renditioning/disappearing people. The rhetorical and semantic flourishes the regime are displaying is the proof we need that they know they've broken the law, and they want to get away with it. Don Rumsfeld ran out of France to dodge war crimes prosecution - for torture. They are doing lots of other illegal stuff, too, that we don't know about, most likely.

Bush and Cheney need another compliant AG who will not cramp their style, investigate, and prosecute them -- or resign in a flamboyantly political way that might draw the attention of Congress or even impeachment.
