Do you think President Bush should pardon Lewis "Scooter" Libby?
I think Libby will surely be pardoned just before Bush leaves office. The honorable thing for Libby to do once pardoned is to write a book exposing the inner circle of corruption and deceit which has resulted in the loss of trillions of dollars, hundreds of thousands of lives, and the U.S. becoming the most hated country on earth.Eric, British Columbia
Of course he will be pardoned, do you even need to ask? It will happen after the 2008 elections so the Democrats can't use it against the Republicans in the election. It's as simple as that.Jon, California
I don't think he should but I think he probably will. If he is going to do it, I wish he would do it now and get it over with. He will probably wait until just before he leaves office and in the meantime, Libby's attorney will be in the courts keeping his client our of jail. Let's just save the money that all the government lawyers will cost in those 18 months, and use it to improve the conditions that the injured soldiers are finding at Walter Reed.Sara, Cedar, Michigan
Why pardon a criminal? Bush and the entire administration belong in a cell with Libby.Kathy, Kenosha, WisconsinShould pregnant girls younger than 16 be considered crime victims?
An emphatic yes! In fact, unless legally married, it should be under 18 years of age. Other laws are strictly adhered to for the protection of minors. I believe the teen pregnancy rate would fall sharply if the 'father' were to be held accountable for his actions.Dee, Naples, Florida
No. Young girls (and boys) are acting older and dressing like their idols, i.e. Pussycat Dolls, Britney and Paris. They flaunt their bodies and sexuality at a disturbing level. Charging young boys with a crime would be wrong.Eric, Port Angeles, Washington
As someone who provides pastoral counsel, I believe that women of all ages need to be able to get reproductive health care the minute they need it. They should not have to delay seeing a doctor out of worry that strangers will find out about their medical needs. Timely access to health care is a matter of life and death!Dennis, Worcester, Massachusetts
My God. Are so few victims reporting crimes that the police have to go searching for them now? Is crime at such a low rate we have to invent new crimes to keep police busy? When will politicians learn that making doctors into police is not the answer?GreyAre deadlines for withdrawing troops from Iraq a good idea?
Public deadlines are a horrible idea. Private deadlines, known only to the decision makers, are a fantastic idea whose time has come! I'm tired of all the nonsensical dying in Iraq.John, Austin, Texas
Since this war is going from lost to more lost, it doesn't matter if a deadline is set or not. So set it. It might increase the violence, but surges and all other previous measures did not decrease the violence. So what's the difference? Giving peace a chance and removing the U.S. occupation might be a positive step.Mad, El Paso, Texas
Jack, the Democrats are playing right into the terrorists' hands, and are sinking themselves for the '08 election. General Petraeus's plan is going to work and withdrawal will be with honor, which is what mainstream America wants. The Democrats have seriously misread the '06 election. And Jack, have you not heard most of the soldiers? They want to pursue the enemy.Paul, Tennessee
Yes, yes, yes, and yes! A deadline will let the American people know when the war will end. It will let the Iraqi people know when they have to stand on their own. Most of all, it will give our troops a date to which they can look forward to for celebration. When I hear the Bush drones say it will give the terrorists a day to wait for, I laugh. Wake up! The terrorists are in Iraq like never before, thanks to us. The terrorists are now going to be in Iraq until the end of time. Grace, Knoxville, Tennessee
