AlterNet: Rights and Liberties: Commanding Responsibility from the Pentagon

A law case has just opened the door to Bushco being convicted for torture.
Whistleblowers have confirmed that this regime authorised torture under US and International Law.

Sooner or later these people will have to lose power.
Then they will be up for prosecution

Unless of course permanent state terror has been established.

AlterNet: Rights and Liberties: Commanding Responsibility from the Pentagon: "Rumsfeld and Cheney are staring down the possibility they could be held accountable for crimes at Abu Ghraib, Falluja and Guantanamo.

A jury verdict in Memphis late last year caused little stir among the general public, but it may have caught the attention of Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, and other high officials of the Bush administration. The jury found Colonel Nicolas Carranza, former Vice Minister of Defense of El Salvador and now a U.S. citizen living in Memphis, responsible for overseeing the torture and killing in that country 25 years ago. Could similar charges be brought against high U.S. officials for the actions of their subordinates in Abu Ghraib, Falluja, and Guantanamo?"
