How Will A Truth Commission Work?

Dahlia states the obvious:

It's sweet and fanciful to think that with a grant of immunity and a hot cup of chai, Bush-administration officials who have scoffed at congressional subpoenas and court dates will sit down and unburden themselves to a truth commission about their role in the U.S. attorney firings.

I do think that a Truth Commission remains our best bet. But it cannot be set up as a way to give Bush officials legal immunity for war crimes. It must be the preliminary. And Dahlia seems to me too willing to believe that we already know most of it. With Cheney and Addington, the worst probably remains hidden from view. Let's expose it and see what the public thinks we should do with these people when the true extent of their crimes is in the full light of day.
