Why isn't George W. Bush in jail?

There certainly appears to be enough evidence to impeach George W. Bush, but the bigger question might be why isn't he in jail? The list of apparent crimes committed by Bush and company is seemingly endless. A quick Google check reveals list after list of offenses -- so what gives?

Here are just a few for your review:

The Nation -- November 2004

Salon -- January 2005

Friends of the Earth -- 2007

We’re talking impeachable crimes, here. We’re talking high crimes and misdemeanors. We’re talking about conspiracy and murder. We’re talking about war crimes and crimes against humanity. We’re talking about deception and manipulation. We have the proof and we know whodunit. We even have public confessions but the American news media is so obviously complicit in the crimes and coverups that people don’t even worry about confessing in public any more! And there is nothing at all we can do about it.
Regarding the latest scandal to make the news, Dan Froomkin in the Washington Post refers to the administrations actions as "The Politics of Distraction."

As far as the White House public-relations machine is concerned, here is all you need to know about the firing of eight U.S. attorneys last year: The Justice Department made some mistakes in how it communicated that those prosecutors were let go for appropriate reasons. And, oh yes, there is no evidence that White House political guru Karl Rove ever advocated the firing of all 93 U.S. attorneys previously appointed by President Bush.

But from the very beginning of this scandal, the central question has been and remains: Was there a plot hatched in the White House to purge prosecutors who were seen as demonstrating insufficient partisanship in their criminal investigations?

Everything else is deception or distraction.

How much longer is it going to take for Congress and the mainstream media to get on board?

I like you blog/site. Is he really going to escape from office without prosecution? I don't understand how that can happen.

He needs to be locked up. Especially after keeping anyone from investigating the 9/11 attack.
