Honoring The Resistance

More

This is a good idea:

There's been a lot of discussion about how to address those responsible for the worst excesses of the Bush administration's extralegal responses to the terrorist threat. Regardless of how he approaches the guilty, I'd like to see President-elect Obama honor the JAGs, pro bono lawyers and civil liberties groups who pushed back against the excesses and in so doing defended us all against them. It would be a strong symbolic rebuke to those who, for reasons of political cohesion at a time of crisis, might not be immediately prosecuted themselves.

I nominate Ian Fishback.
