Since When Are There Limits on Accountability?

I was shocked to read this headline on MSNBC:

The first paragraph of the article states: “President Bush said the public’s decision to reelect him was a ratification of his approach toward Iraq and that there was no reason to hold any administration officials accountable for mistakes or misjudgments in prewar planning or managing the violent aftermath.”

SINCE WHEN ARE THERE LIMITS ON ACCOUNTABILITY?

This has nothing to do with politics. If you or I participate in a crime, we can be tried and convicted years later, sometime decades later depending on the severity of the crime. For example, a number of Catholic priests have been convicted for molesting young children many years after the fact, even though they were “re-elected” by the church.

How is the media allowing GW Bush to get away with this? Why aren’t there ongoing investigations into his conduct and actions? Some conservatives claim “the media” is biased against them; instead it appears that the mainstream media is giving GW Bush a free ride.
