War Crimes Investigation Ahead?

Let's hope. From the NYT:

Reacting to an ABC News report that “Vice President Cheney, former National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and Secretary of State Colin Powell, as well as CIA Director George Tenet and Attorney General John Ashcroft” “discussed and approved specific details of how high-value al Qaeda suspects would be interrogated by the Central Intelligence Agency,” The Atlantic’s Marc Ambinder says, “it remains one of those hidden secrets in Washington that a Democratic Justice Department is going to be very interested in figuring out whether there’s a case to be made that senior Bush Administration officials were guilty of war crimes.”

“Stories like these from ABC News,” Ambinder predicts, “will be as relevant a year from now as they are right now, perhaps even more so.”

Not only will it still be relevant, it will be easier to do once these war criminals are out from behind Bush's skirt AKA the now spurious and then non-existent claim of 'executive privilege'. It ain't called 'the long arm of the law' for nothing.

Some say the Dems won't pursue it out of fear of being seen to politicize the issue for their own partisan agenda. Turnabout is fair play, and we're talkin' about making an example out of WAR CRIMINALS to prevent them from being perpetrated in our name ever again.

I'm down wit' a little plain ol' payback as well, but that's just me.
