Gunning for Gonzales et al.

Least of All Ex Bushites!

Spanish law allows courts to reach beyond national borders in cases of torture or war crimes under a doctrine of universal justice, though the government has recently said it hopes to limit the scope of the legal process.

From ThinkProgress.com:
A Spanish court “has agreed to consider opening a criminal case against six former Bush administration officials…over allegations they gave legal cover for torture at Guantanamo Bay.” The officials include former attorney general Alberto Gonzales, former undersecretary of defense for policy Douglas Feith, former Cheney chief of staff David Addington, Justice Department officials John Yoo and Jay S. Bybee, and Pentagon lawyer William Haynes.
Hmmm...is there a special place for them waiting in Paraguay? Wouldn't it be coincidental for these people to suddenly disappear at the same time? Hey, they're Bushites! They really are that dumb! Maybe they'll get indictments from all over the world!

France, Germany, Argentina, India, Finland: WHAT'S KEEPING YOU? Come on! Any one of you can do better: why keep the number to six? Why not ten, or, maybe twenty? Think of the possibilities! You could hold the trials at Guantanamo! The follow-up movie would get Oscar buzz even before it came out in theaters! "Judgment At Gitmo!" Or "Gitmo's Revenge", starring Tom Cruise (or Philip Seymour Hoffmann if you're really serious about Oscar) as a "Gitmo Guard with a Guilt None Of Us Should Bear!"

Seriously, will this be the first incidence of righteousness and justice coming from a foreign country?

We can only hope.

Thank you, Spain, for helping to re-establish our faith in mankind!
