"Who should President Bush pardon?" I ask this question that has been raised in today's Times, for last week our American colleges in Chiang Mai where debating the matter. Their main argument, Yanks can't debate as we Brits do, was that Bush is preparing a Blanket Dispensation to cover all actions deemed to be criminal, that have been committed under his 'Watch'. Their argument centered on, Presidents can Pardon CRIMES, but can they pardon people who have not yet been Convicted. john I have always wondered what Bill Clinton got for pardoning Patty Hearst.
