War Crimes

Four or five years ago, one would be branded a radical liberal even to suggest that Bush and his administration were acting illegally and committing war crimes, and that they should be held accountable in an international court of law. Now that the International Red Cross has delivered its report to the CIA stating categorically that the U.S. has conducted a program of torture and that torture is illegal, the remaining question is “Will these administrators be punished, or not? And if not, why not?” So many analysts pose the question as if it’s a close question… but it’s not.

It’s simple: Are we guided by rule of law, or aren’t we?
