The Bush Years : "Taxi to the Dark Side"

Many Americans like to use the two words "never forget" when reflecting on some of the most traumatic times in our history. Whether it be September 11th or Pearl Harbor, these two words seem to elicit patriotism and a sense of reflective pride.

While I understand the importance of such feelings, it's also critical that we continue to look back and educate ourselves on some of our most troubled times, including such national travesties as slavery and Katrina. On this note, despite the hope and optimism that has enveloped this country over the past seven days, we must not for a moment forget what's happened over the past eight years. There's still so much that we don't know, and so much that has tarnished this country both domestically and abroad for decades, if not generations, to come.

As we move closer to the end of this abomination of an administration, I do think it's necessary to look back and continue to expose George W. Bush and his administration. A good place to start is with the documentary I watched tonight. More to come in the future, but if you're interested in taking a look inside Guantanamo, Afghanistan and innocence not only lost, but destroyed, watch this film.
