They were the enablers in the early lawless decades of the 21st Century who went along to get along with W Bush on his rampage of fear and terror in the United States and throughout the world.

Freezing prisoners to near death, repeated beatings, long forced standing, waterboarding, cold showers in air conditioned rooms, stress positions [Arrest mit Verschaerfung - enhanced interrogation], withholding of medicine and leaving wounded or sick prisoners alone in cells for days on end - all these have occurred at US detention camps under the command of President George W Bush, and over a hundred documented deaths have occurred in these interrogation sessions - Source

The Accused persons had committed the Crime of Torture and War Crimes, in that: the Accused persons had willfully participated in the formulation of executive orders and directives to exclude the applicability of all international conventions and laws, namely the Convention against Torture 1984, Geneva Convention III 1949, Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the United Nations Charter in relation to the war launched by the U.S. and others in Afghanistan (in 2001) and in Iraq (in March 2003); additionally, and/or on the basis and in furtherance thereof, the Accused persons authorized, or connived in, the commission of acts of torture and cruel, degrading and inhuman treatment against victims in violation of international law, treaties, and conventions including the Convention against Torture 1984, and the Geneva Conventions, including Geneva Convention III 1949 -

A lawless 21st Century begins in earnest - compliments of W Bush. Then come the enablers - those sworn in to serve, defend the Constitution, and uphold our laws and treaties, but lacking the will, resolve, and strength, to maintain justice and respect for the rule of law in the early decades of the new Century:

Nancy Pelosi - "as I've always said impeachment is off the table" for W Bush and his associates.

Harry Reid - "impeaching the president is so far-fetched it's ridiculous".

Barack Obama - "no one is above the law", but a "need to look forward" - thereby dooming any respect for justice and the rule of law in the early decades of the new Century.

John Boehner - expressed no interest in impeaching the Republican President W Bush citing "more pressing matters at hand" - however, quickly voted to impeach Democrat President Bill Clinton.
