Fox Host: Bush and Cheney ‘Should Have Been Indicted’


Andrew Napolitano, the libertarian former judge who is the host of Fox Business Network’s Freedom Watch (and a frequent Fox News talking head), broke from the network’s pre-established narrative this weekend to voice views which are … actually libertarian. Speaking with Ralph Nader on C-SPAN about the Bush Administration’s tactics during their War on Terror, Napolitano said: “What President Bush did with the suspension of habeas corpus with the whole concept of Guantánamo Bay, with the whole idea that he could avoid and evade federal laws, treaties, federal judges and the constitution was blatantly unconstitutional and in some cases criminal.” After Nader pushed, Napolitano declared: “They should have been indicted. They absolutely should have been indicted for torturing, for spying, for arresting without warrants. I’d like to say they should be indicted for lying but believe it or not, unless you’re under oath, lying is not a crime. At least not an indictable crime. It’s a moral crime.” Moral crimes! That’s the kind Fox News hates the most!
