Harry Belafonte was a singer.WarrickF said:That's a good point, I'd not look at who the Judges were and I'm not blown away by the list. I did think that the two speeches given by Harry Belafonte and Michael Ratner were very good though and really got me wondering if this is some form of patriotic treason that the general public is guilty of by sitting back and watching this all go down.
I tried to research Harry Belafonte and Michael Ratner and altough Michael Ratner seems legit I'm not 100% sure I understand who Harry Belafonte is and what his deal is.
Their two speeches can be viewed:
or by clicking on the links on the front page of http://www.bushcommission.org/
I don't see anything recent happening on this commission so I'm not sure what their deal is lately.
Although I live in the U.S. I did not grow up here and am not familiar with all the history – has any U.S. president ever been accused and convicted of such crimes?
