Warm Up the War Crimes Trials; Pt. 3

Vice President Richard Cheney has admitted to approving the use of torture.

Oh, he doesn't agree that waterboarding is torture, but torture it is. This is an "admission against interest," which would probably be admissible in any court that sought to try him.

If Dick Cheney goes overseas after January 20th to any nation other than Saudi Arabia, Iraq and possibly Israel, he will run a real risk of being arrested and extradited for trial in one of the nations that maintains world-wide jurisdiction for war crimes. He might as well surrender his passport.

Under the Yamashita/Medina Doctrine of command responsibility, George Bush will run the same risks if he goes overseas.

It couldn't happen to a more deserving pair of scum-sucking weasels.
