Spain: And we don't prosecute human rights violators ** giggle **
Spanish prosecutors will seek criminal charges against Alberto Ghraibzales and five other high-ranking Bush misadministration officials over their role in the torture of five Spanish citizens held at Guantánamo.
The six defendants—in addition to Gonzales, former Assistant Attorney General Jay Bybee, former Deputy Assistant AG John Yoo, former Defense Department general counsel William J. Haynes II, Vice President Cheney’s former chief of staff David Addington, and former Undersecretary of Defense Douglas Feith—are accused of having given the green light to the torture and mistreatment of prisoners held in U.S. detention in “the war against terror,” or "twat."
The Bush Six labored at length to create a legal black hole in which they could implement their policies safe from the scrutiny of American courts and the American media. Perhaps they achieved much of their objective, but the law of unintended consequences has kicked in. If U.S. courts and prosecutors will not address the matter because of a lack of jurisdiction, foreign courts appear only too happy to step in.
In a separate charge, Feith still stands accused of being "the fucking stupidest guy on the face of the Earth."
