What about Nacho & Jose?

I was looking over the slimy and not so slimy on GWB's first pardon list - but I still don't see Nacho Ramos and Jose Compean — serving 11- and 12-year terms, respectively, for shooting a drug smuggler in the stern in 2005 (the criminal was subsequently arrested smuggling drugs while waiting to testify against the agents and is serving a nine-year sentence in federal prison). They should be set free at the first possible moment - but something tells me that GWB's blind spot about the Mexican border will stop that - to his great shame.

I would like to see G. Gordon Liddy pardoned as well as one last swipe to the hippies - but that is just me.

Hat tip Mark.
