The Bush legacy

n 2004, Bush Department of "Justice" officials agreed to not to prosecute AIG for fudging company books. House Democrats would like to know more...

House Oversight and Government Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Towns (D-N.Y.) said that former AIG CEO {M-o-u-s-e! Sorry. -Ed.} Hank Greenberg should be able to identify Bush misadministration officials involved in the decision-making around the settlement.

Asked if he would be directly pursuing Bush administration officials, Towns said: "No doubt about it. That's the reason I want to talk to Greenberg first. He might even point some folks out. That's of great interest to us."

Criminal charges could result from the investigation, Towns said.

Oh please Oh please Oh please Oh please tell me this isn't an April Fool's joke...
