    Why has the Bush administration gotten off without paying for war crimes?  We prosecuted the Japanese FOR THE SAME procedures done to our soldiers, yet Cheney and Bush walk free.  What's the point of a United Nations if it isn't going to enforce international law?

    The Japanese were prosecuted for water boarding us in World War II.  http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/co … 01170.html

    Oh how times have changed.

      "AP reports: US, Yemeni officials: Would-be bomber at heart of al-Qaida plot was working for CIA all along"

      al qaida...."little toilet". It's CIA and Mossad. That's why they get away with it,imo.

      These people don't play around. If you value your life, you do the 2 step.

    Any action which the government takes which doesn't benefit the public is a sadistic act of treason. This includes previous Presidents or any future Presidents.

    These people are not above the law regardless of what position they held for office or what money or influence they have anywhere. They should prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. If they are going to insist on using laws like Jaywalking to control people's individual actionable responsibility, then these idiots can be held for larger crimes.

    The fact that the U.S. was found guilty of water-boarding, then all those who were involved should be held accountable, from the top all the way down to the lowest individual.

      Aside from ordering drone strikes that kill innocent civilians, Obama's worst moral failing is not prosecuting the former administration. 

      Why?  I think the torture has continued, and it just not openly discussed as it once was.  I also believe most of Congress knew exactly what was going on and would thus be implicated.  It sickens me.

        Actually, Bush and Cheney made torture legal through the Office of Legal Council  that they established.  They re-wrote the laws so that they could not be held accountable for their actions.  Google John Yoo.  He was the attorney they hired to run the show. Also google Rumsfield's memo's on allowing torture.  These laws are still in effect and Obama has done nothing to change the laws.  That's why they can't be prosecuted.

          It violates international law, even if the war criminals tried to weasel their way out by changing U.S. law.

        Yes, it's enough to make anyone sick.

          It SHOULD be.  I don't see it as a partisan issue.  The man was a disgusting excuse for a human being, who just happened to be a Republican. 

          But many Republicans came to his defense and actually defended the practice.  I cannot understand why.

            Because it serves a purpose. If they prosecute a former president for war crimes, then they are setting a precedent for the future. Truth is, Bush, Cheney, Bliar and the other criminals will get away with it, unfortunately. Although international law should mean something, it means nothing to the likes of them and their puppet masters. After all, they control the very morons that purport to uphold international law.

              Ah that's the key Hollie.  The precedent would mean future Presidents could not get away with breaking the law.  It must be some kind of fraternal brotherhood (since currently, no women have been President) that watches out for each other.
