Comment Which is worse? (Score 1) 1010

Mishandling classified information (Clinton) or starting a war without cause and basically being a war criminal (Bush, Cheney, et al)? As a practical matter neither one has any chance of being prosecuted if for no other reason than to save the country from turmoil (yeah let's indict a major party's candidate in an election year over some relatively minor transgression in the grand scheme of things). Just like how it was better to just to move on after the 2000 election fiasco, some injustices just aren't ever going to be remedied.

The funny thing is I'm sure a lot of the very same people here on Slashdot up in arms over this issue think Assange, Snowden, Manning are heroes for releasing classified information. Of course they shouldn't have been prosecuted either.
