The Ultimate Bush Derangement Syndrome.

Kit Bond attempts to make the argument that Obama is being irresponsible in saying that he will close Gitmo because several hundred prisoners could, "flood the system".

He also appears to believe that US prisons currently hold, "a murderer here, a murderer there".

And when asked if people who issued orders for torture to be carried out should be prosecuted, he warns that this would set off "a political battle at the highest level."

He states that, "We don't go back and look at previous administrations and try to try them for crimes. That is the ultimate Bush derangement syndrome."

So, international law - as it pertains to war crimes - is now, "the ultimate Bush derangement syndrome".
